Another week, another #MusicMonday courtesy of PopWrapped. Discover every brand-new tune that deserves a spot on your playlist below.

"Ugly" - Drew

Former X Factor USA contestant Drew Ryniewicz is ready to launch her career as just Drew and despite anyone’s expectations, her debut single "Ugly" is a different kind of brilliant. The production includes everything you love about a psychedelic, dark and moody dance-pop tune. On top of it, the songstress lays her vocals like a true siren, singing the self-empowering lyrics in support of the misfits with great confidence and attitude.

"Bodies" - Travis Garland

Former NLT member Travis Garland has returned to the scene with a brand-new single, titled "Bodies". Coming from his UPPERS + DOWNERS EP vol. I that came out today, the track finds the crooner revisiting his significant electro-urban sound with a more rock-infused approach. Alt-R&B is served at its best on this sexy yet smooth slow-burning jam, as he delivers his amazing butter-soft vocals and exquisite falsetto, while singing about his passionate yet criminal love affair.

"WILD" - Troye Sivan

There is simply no chance Troye Sivan wouldn’t make it on this week’s #MusicMonday, ‘cause his WILD EP and the titular track are so damn good. The Australian YouTube sensation delivers a perfect mix of indie-pop with a smooth melody full of finger-snapping and an anthemic chorus to go by. He’s found softly singing the confessional, romantic lyrics on top of some serious percussion, with infectious kids-like backing vocals assisting him here and there.

"All In My Head" - Nadia Ali & PANG!

Nadia Ali makes her return to the scene by joining her forces with Swedish duo PANG! to craft her brand-new single, "All In My Head". The song is led by some soft piano keys before the beat kicks in, along with a bunch of other background elements. It’s the chill kind of deep-house tune that you won’t hear on the dancefloor anytime soon, but will instantly fall in love with thanks to its perfectly combined ethereal melody and hazy, sentimental vocals.

"Here For You" - KYGO feat. Ella Henderson

Ella Henderson can do no wrong and her all-new collaboration with Norwegian producer and DJ, KYGO, is only further proof of that. "Here For You" serves as a laid-back kind of tropical, chill-house tune. Sweet piano keys and synths mix perfectly with xylophone and tambourine-like instruments, making the production extremely atmospheric and ethereal for the former X Factor finalist to softly sing the romantic lyrics on.

"Give It Up" - CRUELS feat. Salt Ashes

The Limousines’ Giovanni Giusti is going solo as CRUELS and what better way than a team-up with Salt Ashes? Their collaboration, "Give It Up", serves as a tropical kind of jam that majorly flirts with old-school deep-house and makes use of some serious xylophone as part of its percussion. The songstress sounds wonderfully smooth here, with her vocals digitized here and there, making the upbeat chorus extremely addictive.

"Do It Well" - XYconstant feat. Tom Aspaul

English newcomer XYconstant has joined his forces with Tom Aspaul for his new single, "Do It Well", and well, it’s the oh-so-good kind of track. Upon first listen, the tropical house kind of melody will instantly bring back summer memories before they were even gone. Repetitive lyrics and Aspaul’s sweet vocals further add to the song’s affection, and the fact that it all reminds a bit of Years & Years is far from doing any harm.

"I Know What You Did Last Summer" - Jacob Whitesides ft. Kelly Rowland

Jacob Whitesides makes sure everyone notices his brand-new single by getting assistance from Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland. "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is a nostalgic, R&B-leaning kind of midtempo with synths landing on top of the keys and riffs of its production. Remarks have been made regarding the age difference between the two in contrast with the sexy lyrics, but they both do exceptional work with their vocals and "sell" the song.

"Turn The Music Louder (Rumble)" - KDA feat. Tinie Tempah and Katy B

London native producer KDA had Tinie Tempah and Katy B lend vocals to his dancefloor anthem "Rumble", and "Turn The Music Louder" is the result. Tinie raps his way through the bop-worthy and bass-heavy verses, building the way for the songstress to belt this killer of a hook and take us to church with her majestic vocals. This revamped version not only stays true to the original, but the two featured artist also add to the club smash.

"Giving It Up" - Aiden Grimshaw

Last but definitely not least, another X Factor native has a brand-new single out and it’s none other than Aiden Grimshaw. "Giving It Up" is some kind of chilled and laid-back electro-pop tune with minimalist production courtesy of MEMEB. It comes off hypnotic yet bouncy at the same time, with the synths going wild - the experimental way. The moody yet optimistic lyrics about a romance-gone-wrong find the crooner delivering an utterly intriguing vocal throughout.
