This single by new artist Zara Larsson combines pop and EDM just enough for a radio hit. A solid beat and a catchy hook make this song what it is. Not much variety to other popular songs like it, but it is definitely an interesting listen. MNEK’s appearance also helps add a diverse sound and makes it work better.

The single off of Rihanna’s latest album brings back awareness of the dancehall genre to the mainstream. Infusing some Caribbean-native language with a catchy feature by Drake, she takes over clubs and headphones around the world. Oh, and you get to see Drake dance again in the video.

Lukas Graham puts out his debut single which almost immediately rose to the top of the charts, before his album was even released. It tells the hauntingly beautiful tale of a child facing reality as he grows up. A fusion of rock with a hip-hop influence makes this an odd mix, but nonetheless great.

Meghan Trainor follows up her Best New Artists Grammy win with this single, reassuring her female fans that no means no. Following a traditional pop formula, this song keeps in touch with the typical catchy beat and the odd sounds that Trainor has experimented with before.
