10 Songs You Need To Hear This Week: Robyn, Cardi B, E^ST And More

Written By Sam Murphy on 10/26/2018

TYSM New Music Friday for these tasty delights.

10. Ellie Goulding – Close To Me (Feat. Diplo & Swae Lee)

Ellie Goulding returns three years after the release of Delirium with a song that’s just slightly better than fine. It’s a bop but we’re hardly parting with our $1.69 on iTunes for it.

9. Trippie Redd – Topanga

It’s fitting that Trippie Redd is levitating on the cover of Topanga because there’s something spiritual about this cut. It floats like a euphoric Kanye album closer and makes us feel gooey inside.

8. Lila Drew – faded/2am (Feat. GoldLink)

Lila Drew is a Californian artist who has come out of nowhere with this bedroom joint. It’s lo-fi and simple but Drew manages to show star power. GoldLink’s guest verse is also perfect for it.

7. GRAACE – SOS

GRAACE’s voice just reaches inside you and grabs your heart out. It’s so vulnerable and that’s showcased beautifully on this honest cut SOS.

6. Cardi B – Money

Money, Cardi’s first single since Invasion Of Privacy feels like it would’ve slotted in nicely on the record. It’s got the ferocity of Money Bag with the rawness of Get Up 10.

5. Feels – Assemble (Feat. ZĀN)

Australian pop music is in such good hands right now and WA duo Feels are repping for it hard with new single Assemble. It features the slippery vocals of Pakistani artist ZĀN who blends into the twinkling beat and takes off into the stratosphere.

4. E^ST – Heaven In My Mind

E^ST has been performing this live for a while now and it’s a euphoric highlight of each of her sets. It’s fitting that it gets its release the same day as Robyn’s album because it houses that same danceable melancholy.

3. Nao – If You Ever

Nao‘s second album Saturn is out today and she brings the bops early on in the piece with If You Ever. It’s a slippery, dancehall-flavoured cut that feels beautifully positive.

2. Normani x Calvin Harris – Checklist

Watch this video and then read this and tell us Normani isn’t a superstar. If you do, we’ll tell you you’re wrong.

1. Robyn – Ever Again

The Queen of heartbreak on the dancefloor flips the script for the finale of her stupidly good new record Honey. Ever Again is a funk-tinged, statement of positivity that radiates sunshine. The climax in the final minute of the song is just what the album needed to solidify it as a classic.
