    "Youngblood" is one of 2018's biggest surprises for me. I had never listened to any 5SOS songs prior to that so I was kinda shocked when I first heard it, it's really that good!

    "Golden" is good, "No Tears Left to Cry" is lovely, and "Make Me Feel" is great!
    Do we settle for the world as it is, or do we work for the world as it should be?

    I've checked Louisa's dancing video, and yes, the song is very catchy.

    Yes is my one here, I prefer Breathe but that was so last year. Do enjoy the Janelle track but I got my life this year to a remix of it rather than the original. One Bit is cool!

    'no tears left to cry' was a real musical moment of 2018. Everyone was wondering what Ariana would come back with, after the difficult year she had, and no one expected that. It's a classic.
    'Make Me Feel' is funky Janelle, chanelling her Prince inspiration. Love it. 'Breathe' is a bop, really held up well against Jax Jones' other bops.

    20: Moss Kena - Square One


    So the first time I heard this, early in 2018, and for several times after I assumed Moss was a black female, not helped by the fact he kept his face hidden for initial months following the release of his debut single. Turns out, he’s a 20 year old white boy with mad cheekbones. His voice is pretty sublime on this, a downtempo R&B/soul ballad of sorts which is instantly mesmerising. The rest of his material since has been so strong and he recently supported Jess Glynne on tour - really hope 2019 is his breakthrough.

    19: Sigrid - Strangers


    Sigrid emerged right at the turn of the year and was given instant fame by the topping the BBC’s Sound of 2018 poll. I’d enjoyed her minor hits from 2017, but from the first listen I could tell Strangers was special. It builds gradually from minimal production, with the percussion kicking in bit by bit before that massive chorus hits and her voice soars over a synthpop riff that any 80s group would’ve loved to have created. Her live performances are charming and the way she bounds across the stage really sells the energy of this track.

    18: RuPaul - Kitty Girl (ft. The Cast Of RuPaul’s Drag Race Allstars Season 3)


    I’ve never been a massive fan of Ru’s music, most of it is generic and disposable, serving well as a soundtrack to the show but that’s it. Whereas Kitty Girl, when featured on AS3 in the ensemble performance was just so so addictive! Yes it’s basic, but it’s so damn catchy and is a top bop. Love the live performance, love the 90s dance-pop production, love the flow of the verses (especially Shangela) and just generally find it a delight. I should really check out more music from the RPDR queens in general, but hopefully the show produces something this good again!

    If 2012 Mike could see you now, five drag queens infiltrating your top twenty! Kitty Girl is a bop though, fair. Strangers is absolutely superb, another one I hope we get to see together in June!

    'Strangers' is a true pop bop! Sigrid snapped on that one

    Ohhh love some of the latest updates! "My Way" and "Yes" are two underrated BOPS. A shame they both flopped. "No Tears" is brilliant. "Kitty Girl" was a hit for me, too. Such a guilty pleasure. Though i prefer the "American" remix from Season 10.

    17: Chvrches - Miracle


    Always been a fan of Chvrches and their 80s electro roots - Get Out was a good track that grew on me somewhat, but it was Miracle that really stood out from their latest album. The production on this song is immense, meaning the post-chorus breakdown really makes an impact and lends itself perfectly to the repeat of the lyric over the top of it at the end. The pinnacle of the track for me is the middle breakdown when they take it up a notch with a stuttering drumbeat that comes crashing down again - such an eargasm.

    16: Toni Braxton - Long As I Live


    Who knew that Toni Braxton, 25 years deep into her chart career, would release two of my favourite songs of 2018? Her voice is as smooth as it ever was and Long As I Live is an absolute R&B classic already - all the hallmarks of an early 00s slow jam, it oozes class and quality, and you can tell it was co-written by one of Babyface’s collaborators. I feel like this was a real low key hit for her, everyone online seemed to rave about it so I’m hoping more of same comes soon.

    15: Blossoms - I Can’t Stand It


    Loved lots of stuff from their debut album in 2016; Blossoms appealed to me as a straightforward indie group with strong melodies who wouldn’t have been out of place in the mid 90s or mid 00s. Two years later and they were back with another brilliant repertoire of tracks - TARWINRYC almost made my top 100, but I Can’t Stand It easily sits in my top 20. A jangly, catchy as hell, made for radio indie hit that would’ve been huge in the peak of Britpop. Really hope to see them live at Glastonbury!

    "Long as I Live" is classy R&B indeed. I think the whole Sex & Cigarettes album was a big success for her, from a quality perspective.

    Didn't expect to see Toni in your top 20! It's a great R&B track, fitting the icon she is.

    Yassss Kween Toni! My favorite R&B song of the year by quite a stretch! And this is coming from someone who feels her ‘10s output has been very lackluster.

    And 51 has never looked so impeccable. #blackdontcrack

    Well this is interesting, wouldn't have expected any of these.
    Miracle is great, I prefer Never Say Die but this too and I hope to see them on the Glasto bill. Blossoms, any other year at least one of their songs would make the cut. I've seen them three times now, twice at Glastonbury, so them appearing at three Glasto on the slot might not be your best bet but with the year off, you never know! I Can't Stand It is probably my favourite of theirs since Charlamagne.
