What better way to kick off your week than good music? PopWrapped has once again gathered all the new tunes that are worth-listening in a #MusicMonday playlist.
"Paradise (Le Paradis Nous Trouvera)" - Josef Salvat
Josef Salvat has been giving music fans life with his singles for a while and he’s now released the French version of his debut album Night Swim, with "Paradise (La Paradis Nous Trouvera)" being pushed as the next one. French lyrics, piano keys and a minimal beat slowly build into the electronic and danceable alt-pop elegance of the chorus, with his vocals being melodic as ever and the atmosphere utterly euphoric.“Dancing On Glass” - St. Lucia When The Night put a spotlight on St. Lucia (a.k.a. Jean-Philip Grobler) a couple of years ago, and he’s now back with brand-new material. The new single is called “Dancing On Glass”, and serves as an extremely catchy and nostalgic extravaganza of an electro-pop tune. With a synth-heavy production and euphoric vocals, his cheerful comeback thrives in creating hype around his upcoming album.
“All My Friends” - Snakehips feat. Tinashe & Chance The Rapper
When London-based duo Snakehips enlisted Tinashe and Chance The Rapper for new single “All My Friends”, little could possibly go wrong. Their collaboration serves as a slow-burning, urban-pop midtempo with a sing-along-ready chorus, full of backing vocals. The lyrics find the two artists discussing the worst aspects of the party life and the loneliness that comes with not being under influence like everyone else.https://open.spotify.com/track/6TaqooOXAEcijL6G1AWS2K “Heartbreak” - MDWS MDWS (a.k.a. Meadows, a.k.a. Callum Meadows McNab) is a Brisbane-based Australian singer/producer who’s currently making his way to the scene and got our attention with debut single “Heartbreak”. With a minimal yet slick electro-urban production, the track finds him delivering a soulful rendition on top of it all and takes it to the next level with his sweetly deep and affected vocals. https://soundcloud.com/mdws_music/heartbreak-1 "Used To Love You" - Gwen Stefani While tirelessly working on her upcoming, third solo studio album, Gwen Stefani has changed its direction and rebooted the era with new single "Used To Love You". Unlike "Baby Don’t Lie" and "Spark The Fire", the JR Rotem-crafted track serves as an electronic ballad with the synths and drums doing the thing, as she passionately sings the heartbreaking lyrics, which are thought to be about her divorce.
"Treasure" - LÉON
After catching the blogsphere’s attention with singles "Tired Of Talking" and "Nobody Cares", LÉON decided to put them both on an EP called Treasure along with two new tracks. The title track serves as her most out-there, upbeat pop tune to date, with a repetitive chorus adding catchiness. Despite the playful production, her vocals sound focused and well-placed, as she sings the bad romance-related lyrics.https://play.spotify.com/track/5Ae9I1nuRUcLkVyLcwyFDW “Like You Want To” - Kita Alexander Kita Alexander landed on the blogsphere by channeling the 70′s aesthetic on former single “My Own Way” and is now back with another one, titled “Like You Want To”. She’s on to the next decade with this one, as the Ben Romans-produced track features a highly nostalgic, 80′s-influenced production, filled with dreamy synths and an ethereal driving beat. With a music video that follows the same routes, it’s definitely one not to miss. “Hollow” - Tori Kelly After the success of her debut album Ubreakable Smile, Tori Kelly strikes back with a brand-new single, “Hollow”. The track serves as a tribute to God and finds the songstress singing on top of a soulful production, made by heavy piano keys, some finger-snapping and a major drum beat, making it extremely radio-friendly. Her vocals are bold and involved as per usual, sounding amazing on the catchy church-taking tune.
“Locked Into You” - Robin Stjernberg
We have a thing for Swedish artists and Robin Stjernberg’s comeback couldn’t be missing from this week’s #MusicMonday. With a new album currently in the works after a long period of absence, the crooner shines on new single “Locked Into You”. The track is a simple piano-driven ballad, with a slightly dramatic production to match the emotional lyrics. It’s the outstanding vocals that make a difference though, as they take affection to new heights.https://open.spotify.com/track/2enfMKcjli7R9a927ZBkeH "Hello" - Adele It’s not easy to follow one hell of a record like 21, but if anyone can do it, it’s definitely Adele. The big-voiced songstress made her comeback simply yet super effectively with 25 lead single "Hello" and reminded everyone what good music sounds like. The track serves as a minimal piano ballad with plenty of emotion and easily relatable lyrics, sung with her imacculate, significant vocals.
