With music streaming services in abundance and lesser-known artists getting more and more opportunities for their music to be heard, it is easy to miss everything that is released.
Don’t feel overwhelmed, we’ve got you covered. Every Saturday we are featuring our round-up of some of the week’s best new tracks as well as one or two songs that might not be new this week, but we cannot stop playing.
This is the Pop Five:
SG Lewis featuring Robyn and Channel Tres — “Impact”
Get ready to hit the dance floor (or your more likely your living room these days) with this banger from SG Lewis that features the distinct vocals of Robyn and Channel Tres rapping on the song’s verses.
Orville Peck — “Small Town Boy”
In his cover of the Bronski Beat classic, “Small Town Boy” singer Orville Peck gives us a side to Orville Peck that we have never seen before. That falsetto is pretty spot on.
Troye Sivan — “Rager Teenager”
Are you ready for a moody Troye Sivan? “Rager Teenager” takes us back to Sivan’s teenage years as he sings about hormones and angst. “I just want to go wild/ I just wanna fuck shit up and just ride,” he sings. “In your car tonight/ In your bed tonight.”
Rolling Stones — “Scarlet”
The music video for “Scarlet” features Paul Mescal of Normal People fame. He’s shown solo in the video dancing around his hotel room while drinking, smoking and undressing.
The song may not be as great as the video is, but the video is worth multiple viewings.
Sam Fischer — “The Usual”
The first single from Sam Fischer‘s The Homework is “The Usual.” If you want a song that is going to give you all the feels, then look no further than “The Usual.”
