KATY PERRY / BIRTHDAY
Katy’s definitely jumping around musical styles at the moment. After the dark sound of trap-inspired Dark Horse, this is definitely DISCO!
ONEREPUBLIC / LOVE RUNS OUT
This was supposed to be released last year but Ryan Tedder held it back because he wasn’t happy with the chorus, as he says “you can’t have a song without a chorus.”
ED SHEERAN / SING
Ed’s new album drops in June. It’s the follow up to + called x (Multiply) and features an Ellie Goulding diss song! He wrote about their relationship problems in a track called Don’t.
CLEAN BANDIT feat SHARNA BASS / EXTRAORDINARY
Their name comes from the translation into English of a Russian swear word. Sharna Bass is the vocalist on this song, a 16 year-old singer who’s never recorded before.
PHARRELL WILLIAMS / MARILYN MONROE
How do you follow a smash like Happy? Number 1 in 24 countries, including 8 weeks in the UAE. Luckily Pharrell has another stand-out song in Marilyn Monroe.
