December is finally here and our Mondays are slowly getting better thanks to the Christmas mood, but for those of you that still need a music fix, PopWrapped's got you covered with a #MusicMonday playlist of brand-new, worthy tunes.“Running Out” - Matoma feat. Astrid S Everyone’s favorite Norwegian producer and DJ Tom Lagergren aka Matoma dropped his debut EP Hakuna Matoma, which includes something less than a dozen of his collaborations. Among them, you’ll find the brand-new track, “Running Out”, featuring vocals from up and coming pop sensation Astrid S. Keeping up the tropical house sound, he takes the production to a fresh direction and the songstress’ beautiful vocals do nothing but compliment it. “Stay” - Kygo feat. Maty Noyes Norway has yet another gem to grace us with this week and it comes from none other than super-producer and DJ Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, commonly known as Kygo. This time around, he enlists up and coming, Los Angeles-based songstress Maty Noyes on the vocals of the “Here For You” follow-up, who offers a wonderful delivery to accompany the casual, yet always amazingly atmospheric kind of tropical house production. “Hymn For The Weekend” - Coldplay feat. Beyoncé Everyone and their mothers’ favorite rock band Coldplay striked back with their seventh studio album A Head Full Of Dreams this past week and if there’s one track that stands out, it’s their collaboration with Beyoncé. Titled “Hymn For The Weekend”, the upbeat tune finds Chris Martin leading the way on top of Bey’s outstanding backing vocals and a production made of keys and percussion, that meets with some wild horns on the anthemic chorus. “Renaissance” - Steve James feat. Clairity 17-year-old Los Angeles-based producer and DJ Steve James has been remixing well-known tunes for a while and has finally dropped a major original tune, “Renaissance”. With up and coming star Clairity on vocal duties, the tropical track kicks off with some soft piano keys that fit perfectly with her deep vocals, before the beat slowly makes an appearance and drives it into a frenzy on the island-flavored sort of breakdown. https://soundcloud.com/stevejamesofficial/renaissance-feat-clairity “Genghis Khan” - Miike Snow Our Swedish addiction is at its best this week, with the Bloodshy & Avant and Andrew Wyatt-formed group Miike Snow striking back with the second single off of their upcoming, third record iii. Titled “Genghis Khan”, the track finds them going for their significant sound in an infectious way, with soft piano keys providing the melody and some kind of crisp percussion adding tempo to it all, singing the pop-ish lyrics with some sweet, soulful-esque vocals. “Start A Riot” - BANNERS Member of the Spotify Spotlight 2016 list, Liverpool’s very own BANNERS has his debut, self-titled EP on the way for early next year and has now premiered the very first sample from it. After “Ghosts” and “Shine A Light”, “Start A Riot” further proves he’s worth all the fuss, by providing him with a nu-pop kind of production with rock ballad influences, which finds his soft vocals melting like soft butter as he sings the utterly romantic lyrics. https://soundcloud.com/bannersmusic/start-a-riot-1 “Klein Blue” - Sophia Somajo We keep on satisfying our Swedish addiction with another Stockholm native this week, Sophia Somajo or just Soso. With her The Freudian Slip Vol 1 EP set for a February release, the songstress has now premiered another sample from it, “Klein Blue”. The track seres as the right kind of synth-heavy midtempo balladry, with one hell of a banging chorus, that makes it feel like a non-commercialized version of Rihanna’s Sia-penned “Diamonds”. https://soundcloud.com/youcancallmesoso/sophia-somajo-klein-blue “Romeo” - Chairlift They made everyone pay attention with “Ch-Ching”, so Brooklyn-based duo Chairlift, formed by Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly, has moved on to the next single, titled “Romeo”. This one is written from the perspective of Greek mythology’s Atalanta, a huntress who promised to marry the man that would outrun her, killed those who failed and liked it. A theme that goes hand in hand with the cheerful, synth-pop extravaganza of a production. “Amazing” - Foxes After stunning us with the more melancholic kind of midtempo ballad “If You Leave Me Now”, Foxes further previews her sophomore record All I Need with brand-new single “Amazing”. With the tempo brought right back up, this one sounds like a feel-good kind of pop tune with a bright production that works perfectly alongside the songstress’ sweet vocals, with the chorus hook being one of her catchiest and the bridge one of her most beautiful yet. https://open.spotify.com/track/0WnHJ2ymRTqGfduWDKcAUj “Remember” - Sammy Adams Having been around for a while and mostly known from his collaboration with Enrique Inglesias “Finally Found You”, Boston-based rapper Sammy Adams is preparing to make a name for himself with debut record The Long Way. He’s now released the lead single from it, “Remember”, with a rock-esque melody of guitar riffs and hip-hop approach thanks to the percussion building into the radio-friendly chorus hook. https://soundcloud.com/samadamslive/remember
