It’s a whole new month but a Monday will always be what it is and we can’t be too happy about it. Let’s make sure it has a good soundtrack by checking out all the worth-listening new tunes that PopWrapped has put together for you in another #MusicMonday. “Not Too Young” - Sabina Ddumba Our thing for Swedish musicians is back this week with Sabina Ddumba, a former Tensta Gopsel Choir member, X-Factor Sverige contestant and backing vocalist on Katy Perry’s “Walking On Air”. The songstress has now returned to the scene with new single “Not Too Young”, a soul-pop number with a catchy piano-driven production, an infectious midtempo beat that turns into clapping on top of it all and her outstanding, church-taking vocal performance. “Wild Things” - Alessia Cara After catching our attention with “Here” and stunning with her Four Pink Walls EP ahead of debut album Know-It-All, Alessia Cara returns with a song she’s been performing for a while and everyone’s been waiting for, “Wild Things”. The shiny alt-pop kind of tune finds the songstress laying some confident, soulful vocals on top of a beautiful combination of piano keys and energetic percussion, as she sings the rebellious lyrics.
“Grown” - Little Mix The ladies of Little Mix are preparing to release their third record Get Weird this coming Friday and have been gracing us with a bunch of countdown singles, but the Jess Glynne-co-penned “Grown” is one that truly stands out. The super-busy production gets it right with some hard-hitting bass and melodic saxophone, as well as some finger-snapping. The ladies sing with full-attitude on, sassy and confident as ever, on top of the catchy melody. “Circles” - James Maslow After making his solo debut with “Lies”, former Big Time Rush member James Maslow strikes back with another single, titled “Circles”. Being the second sample from his upcoming, debut studio album, the track serves as a smooth and kind of soulful R&B offering with romantic content, kind of bringing in mind a softer version of The Weeknd. If that’s anything to judge from, he’s definitely up to a great start and will have an interesting debut record. “Afterlife” - Greyson Chance With his sophomore album Planet X and a new EP Somewhere Over My Head on the way, Greyson Chance has now graced us with the first sample off the latter, his brand-new single called “Afterlife”. The track serves as a dreamy piece of soft electro-pop with R&B references, as an ethereal production is paving the way for the crooner’s impressive vocals, sometimes deep and others in falsetto mode, to shine.
“Out Of Touch” - BETABLOCK3R Chris Boulos and Ryan George’s sytnh-pop duo BETABLOCK3R is back with a brand-new single, “Out Of Touch”. The two are once again bringing their A-game with this one, as the song is filled with joy and sunshine. A more laid-back kind of funky production with some seriously danceable light-disco vibes and cheerful vocals that will instantly put you in a good mood and make you want to press replay a couple of times. “Remember” - Steve Angello feat. The Presets Former Swedish House Mafia producer Steve Angello is preparing to drop his debut solo album Wild Youth and has delivered the third promotional single, titled “Remember”. For this one, the DJ has enlisted Australian band The Presets on the vocals and they do an excellent job on top of the production, as the piano gets twisted with synths and percussion, turning the song into an extremely delightful and atmospheric affair. “Touch” - Pia Mia After the massive success of her collaboration with Chris Brown and Tyga “Do It Again”, Pia Mia returns to the scene with a solo single called “Touch”. For this one, the songstress leaves the urban-pop sound to the side and goes for some tribal kind of dance-pop. The production is exotic and entirely island-flavored, with the beat breakdown reminding of Justin Bieber’s recent work with Skrillex, and is combined with sexy lyrics and amazing vocals.
“Lost” - Jack And White American indie-pop duo Jack And White, formed by former American Idol finalist Brooke White and Jack Matranga, are preparing to drop their fourth EP Lost and have released the title track as the first sample. The guitar-driven production is a country-esque folk-pop affair with some really melodic vocals singing the sweetly romantic lyrics, with some repetitive lines making the chorus extremely sing-along-ready. “Closure” - Hayley Warner Former Australian Idol contestant Hayley Warner hasn’t released a single since 2011, but it’s finally time for her to make a comeback. Being an accomplished songwriter worldwide, what better way to return than an emotional ballad like “Closure”? The songstress beautifully lays her sentimental vocals on top of some heavy piano keys, as she sings the autobiographical lyrics. It feels good to have her back, doesn’t it? And that’s all for this week! What’s on your #MusicMonday playlists? Leave a comment below and let us know.
