New Music Round-Up: Taylor Swift, Sigrid, Jennifer Lopez and More
Jason Derulo, Ashanti and Pale Waves are also back with new tunes...
Sigrid - 'Strangers'
WHAT A SONG. Sigrid has made a name for herself over the past year or so as a promising one to watch but this proves that she's in it for the long haul. A glorious electropop banger that builds into a stunning chorus. One of the singles of the year.
Jennifer Lopez - 'Amor, Amor, Amor'
Latin pop may be more popular than ever but not enough has been said about the fact that New York born living Latina legend Jennifer Lopez has returned to it. 'Amor, Amor, Amor' is joy personified in a song. We can't wait to see J.Lo perform this live.
Jae Stephens - 'Someone Else'
It's time to learn Jae Stephens' name. After wowing us with '24K' and 'Every Time', she's not done just yet. 'Someone Else' puts Jae's captivating voice front and centre over some understated production. A true superstar in the making. We officially stan.
Remy Ma - 'Wake Me Up (feat. Lil' Kim)'
Remy and Nicki's beef may be old news her rhymes are tight on this diss track and Kim sounds sublime.
Jason Derulo - 'Tip Toe (feat. French Montana)'
Jason Derulo never fails to make a club-ready stone-cold banger and 'Tip Toe' is no exception.
Pale Waves - 'New Year's Eve'
Three songs in and Pale Waves have established themselves as one of UK pop's best acts.
Cupcakke - 'Cartoons'
With every single, Cupcakke's bars get tighter and wittier. This could be her first chart hit.
Ashanti - 'Say Less (feat. Ty Dolla $ign)'
Ashanti is back. The R&B queen brings a DJ Mustard beat to life with her iconic voice.
WHTKD & KStewart - 'Secrets'
KStewart's voice complements WHTKD's production perfectly. What an instrument.
Fuse ODG - 'Boa Me (feat. Ed Sheeran & Mugeez)'
With Ed Sheeran on board, 'Boa Me' could be Fuse ODG's biggest hit to date.
Taio Cruz - 'Row the Body (feat. French Montana)'
Taio Cruz may have been absent from the charts as of late but this is a bop.
Sia - 'Snowman'
Sia might be about to release one of the best Christmas albums of all time.
Dannii Minogue - 'Galaxy'
Danni teams up with Sia for a comeback banger worthy of her best.
Not3s - 'Notice'
Another sublime tune from Not3s. We can't get enough of him.
Chromeo - 'Juice'
The electro-funk duo have never sounded better. A triumph.
Wiz Khalifa - 'Letterman'
Wiz shines on his latest trap masterpiece.
Taylor Swift - Reputation
It's easy to forget that Taylor Swift is a brilliant songwriter, particularly when so much of her public persona centres around her celebrity friendships and relationships. Reputation is littered with countless references to her public feuds but the album is at its best when it puts pettiness aside and gets personal. 'Delicate', 'Getaway Car' and 'New Year's Eve' are all stunning, 'Dancing With Our Hands Tied' is pop perfection and 'Don't Blame Me' features the vocal performance of her career. A must listen.
