The Weekender countdown of the month’s hottest trending tracks to funk up your playlist.
Jessie Ware – “Midnight”
One of our favorite artists in recent times, we’ve been anticipating a new material for about three years. “Midnight” is a captivating soul ballad infused with synth and piano, and Jessie’s signature big voice.
Ed Sheeran – “Bibia Be Ye Ye”
This song has summer all over it. Ed releases a fun promotional video filmed in colorful Ghana to accompany his track. As the singer-songwriter explains, “This isn’t a single, but it’s the summer, and why not have a summer song come out with a feel good video for people to enjoy.”
Hiroomi Tosaka – “Wasted Love”
Japanese singer and actor Hiroomi Tosaka teams up with Afrojack on a brilliant new single. “Wasted Love” is slick and powerful, packing enough punch to knock out any K-pop or J-pop contenders.
Passenger – “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”
The title track from Passenger’s latest album is such a beautifully composed and soulful folk song. “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” has us dreaming into our ceilings.
Christopher Haul – “Something’s Changed”
The debut release from Londoner Christopher Haul is a Daft-Punk inspired August anthem. We’ve had this on loop for days.
Ariana Grande – “Into You”
We’re throwing back to classic Ariana Grande to celebrate her recent Tokyo concerts. “Into You” is one of the many hits featuring on her new greatest hits package, The Best, which comes out on September 27 in Japan.
The Script – “Rain”
After a major hiatus, The Script return with the first single from their upcoming untitled fifth studio album. “Rain” is a sad yet up-tempo love song about the heavy rainfall of a break up.
Boa – “Camo”
“Camo” is a futuristic R&B number that can be described as a funkier version of “Feedback” by Janet Jackson. The queen of K-Pop looks as amazing as ever in the video.
