Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey – ‘The Middle’

Zedd‘s latest track, ‘The Middle’ features the American electronic music duo, Grey (aka brothers Kyle Trewarth and Michael Trewartha) and vocals by American country singer, Maren Morris.

This track may well have come out at the start of 2018 but 10 weeks later, it’s still at Number 10 in the UK charts, following the success of 2017’s Stay with Alessia Cara, however this track performed even better than that.

It’s a fun, uplifting track which has a very similar feel to ‘Stay’ with it’s combination of raw, powerful and digitised/vocoder vocals, atop a blend of 90s pop sensibilities and modern EDM vibes, making for a very distinctive sound.

The video is great fun too, with it’s stunning set and extravagant use of visual lighting. All-round this is just a fantastic piece of modern pop that will undoubtedly get stuck in everyone’s head; a true favourite of mine right now!

Lil Dicky – ‘Freaky Friday’ featuring Chris Brown

The second track this week is Lil Dicky‘s Number 1, smash hit, ‘Freaky Friday’, featuring guest vocals from Chris Brown.

The track itself is a combination of  hip hop, pop and comedy (think similar to The Lonely Island), centring on the film(s) of the same name and continually references Chris Brown himself, throughout.

Whilst this track is intentionally comedic and works hilariously with its accompanying music video, there’s no doubt about it that this is one heck of a catchy tune too; it’s easy to see how it’s managed to top the UK Charts!

The music video itself parodies the 2003 film Freaky Friday (starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan) and features cameos from Jimmy TatroEd SheeranDJ Khaled and Kendall Jenner. It’s a must-watch video but also, I defy anyone not to end up singing along to this earworm of a track!

Jay Sean – ‘Do You Love Me’

Having released a single last year that didn’t perform as well as hoped in the USA and after being quiet for a little while since, Jay Sean is sure to burst back onto the scene with this potentially epic hit, ‘Do You Love Me’.

Following the current trends (similar to that of Justin Bieber etc.) the song uses a vocal sample as part of the hook amongst tropical house vibes and has a massive feel-good factor that makes this song too good to ignore.

No music video has been released online yet but when it does, we’ll update you.

Cheat Codes – ‘No Promises’ featuring Demi Lovato

Cheat Codes have teamed up with the ex-Disney singer and actress Demi Lovato to create this tropical house-fuelled pop track. It’s an incredibly catchy, fun song with a hugely strong summer vibe to it. It’s got all the makings of a summer smash hit for 2017!

Again, no music video has surfaced yet but we’ll of course keep you posted when one does.

Lemaitre – ‘Closer’ featuring Jennie A

Lemaitre are an electronic-indie duo from Norway, who have enjoyed success with their single ‘Closer’.

Although the song was released in 2015, it has been receiving more airplay recently, due to its use in adverts.

The blend of electronic sounds with soulful vocals is just fantastic – it’s easy to see why this song is a fan-favourite amongst Lemaitre fans.

This video for this song is great and suits the song well.

Lauren Aquilina – ‘Kicks’

Lauren Aquilina has just released her latest single, ‘Kicks’, which is set to come from her debut album, since signing to Island Records.

At just 20 years old, Lauren has already accomplished a great deal, releasing 3 EPs whilst she was still at school!

The single is powerful and edgy – it is a great lead single for her upcoming album and paves a great pathway for the songstress, onto great things! I look forward to hearing more from her. The video for the song can be seen below – it has a great rawness to it; definitely worth a watch!
