The lack of blog posts hardly means I’ve stopped listening to new tunes, and in particular the 30 songs in my chart 🙂 The blog posts will come, but in the meantime it’s a mainly feel-good kind of chart with two new entries.
For a third appearance at #1 (6 weeks), it’s “Closure” by Dutch producer Steve Void with vocalist Andy Marsh and its outstanding and memorable video.
Challenging next week will be current #2 “i’m so tired…” by Lauv and Troye Sivan, which is finding its greatest favour in the UK where it’s headed for the Top 10 this week.
And #3 is also in contention is “Don’t Think Twice” by Netherlands-based Emirati production duo Revelries and US producer Sam Smyers with US-based Dutch vocalist Oktavian. Revelries has yet another release later this week with Henri Purnell and Cookin On 3 Burners called “Force Of Nature”, so watch for it!
Sweeping into the Top 5 as the Fastest Riser on the chart twice in a row is the celebrated collaboration of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin van Buuren and W&W with the insanely catchy “Repeat After Me”. What a crowd pleaser 🙂
Stephen Puth joins brother Charlie in obtaining a Top 5 hit on my chart with “Sexual Vibe” climbing 7-5. I’m predicting big things for Stephen too!
Australia’s Sam Bluer moves up 9-7 with “Bite My Tongue”. I really think a collaboration with Troye Sivan is in order, don’t you?
The other newcomer to the Top 10 is by Nashville’s Mokita. “London” (above) is a gorgeous miss-you song with one of the warmest lyrical hooks I’ve hard in ages. Mokita has a new one that I’ll preview here until its proper blog post. It’s called “Kiss And Tell” (below).
“Love” by Simon Curtis advances 17-12 and is eyeing the Top 10 – no strange place for this week’s birthday boy Simon, it’s just missed him for the last three years since the reboots of “8bit Heart” (#1) and “Super Psycho Love” (#3) 😀
Also moving upward is Parralox’s latest “Paradise”, a redux of a single from a few years back with a new vocal by Marcella Detroit and a heavenly house remix by Eric Kupper. It climbs 16-13. Parralox was last in the Top 10 in 2015 with #4 “Aeronaut”.
The biggest mover of the last chart’s new entries belongs to the deep house of Mahalo’s “Go Ahead”, featuring an infectious chorus and a potent vocal by MŌZ. It rises 26-20. Go ahead, take that risk!!
New entry #1 is a bit of a surprise – “Sucker” by The Jonas Brothers at #25. The Jonasei, as I like to call them 😛 , previously charted in 2008 with “S.O.S.” (#15), but Joe has charted solo and with DNCE, and Nick’s “Chains” also made its presence known in the interim. But “Sucker” is simply a very good pop song, with all the right chops, and is highly deserving of its success.
New entry #2 at #29 is the out-and-out inspiring disco of “Let’s Go Dancing” by UK producers Horse Meat Disco featuring the enthusiastic vocal of US singer Amy Douglas. This one’s nothing fancy and with one aim – to make you dance your ass off. It shall succeed 🙂
The chart will return in two weeks after my visit to Miami Music Week!!
