The 10 Best Songs Of The Week

Are you desperately searching for brand-new songs to update your Spotify playlist? Don’t worry, we’re (once again) here for you. Every week, we pick the best songs of the week that surprised, moved, or electrified us. With a great range from big stars to upcoming singers, there’s room for everybody and everything. Turn up the volume because we have discovered some true gems this week.

1. Emma Bale and Promis3 — Divide

The Belgian pop singer Emma Bale released her highly anticipated debut album Retrospect last year and isn’t done with releasing new music yet. Together with her best friends Promis3, she wrote a handful songs for her album, and they also worked on a collaboration together. “Divide” is a very quirky and fun pop song with an atypical chorus, which makes the song stand out immediately. With a music video inspired by the old Scooby Doo movies, this whole release is just extremely adorable.

2. Sevdaliza — High Alone

We don’t know about you, but we’re still recovering from Sevdaliza’s album Shabrang, which was released in 2020. The Dutch-Iranian multidisciplinary artist managed to overwhelm us a couple of times already with her astonishing production and revealed her upcoming EP Raving Dahlia (out February 25th). The new single “High Alone” sees her step away from the bass-heavy electronic sound and is an interesting new approach. Inspired by psych-rock, this song is way more intimate and is as intriguing as always.

3. Kitty — Synthetic Happiness

The Cardiff-based hyper pop princess Kitty has already gifted us several bops and is determined to add some more anthems to that list in 2022. Her new offering “Synthetic Happiness” has a sweet and innocent sound, but the French pop fairy takes that opportunity to talk about dark times. The duality between these two moods works fabulously and confirms why we’re so in love with this upcoming hyper pop singer.

4. Lana Del Rey — Watercolor Eyes

We’ve been on the edge of our seats the past two weeks because the second season of Euphoria is finally here. Not only the anticipation for the new storylines was huge, everybody has been looking forward to hearing the new soundtrack. Melancholic pop goddess Lana Del Rey’s “Watercolor Eyes” will appear in the third episode and is exactly what we expected from her: a heartbreaking pop ballad with amazing vocals and lyrics. We can’t wait to see in what scene this song will be used.

5. Galine — Team

Galine has already performed on many stages but took her time to release new music. “Team” is her first release in three years and proves that everything gets (even) better over time. Galine sounds more confident on her new track and created a beautiful visual world for it by collaborating with a diverse cast of figure skaters. The elegance of this sport works perfectly with the mood of this song and is only the start of even more new music.

6. Alioth — Talk About It

We introduced the Belgian R&B sensation Alioth back in April when he released his debut EP Delusia, and 2022 promises to be even bigger for the rising singer. A new project is in the making, and his fresh track “Talk About It” indicates that it’s going to be worth the wait. The track was produced by Taska Black and is way more intimate than we’re used to, which shows his smoother and more emotional side. This could become his breakthrough hit.

7. Nilüfer Yanya — midnight sun

London’s Nilüfer Yanya was one of the revelations of 2019, when she released her brilliant debut album Miss Universe and ended up in almost every year-end list you can imagine. The stakes for the follow-up project are high, but the first single “stabilise” was already a great success. “midnight sun” is equally intriguing and highlights her incredible songwriting. Nilüfer Yanya’s new album PAINLESS will eventually see the light of day on 4 March.

8. blondestandard — BLUE EYES

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie already proved that blondes have more fun and debuting artist blondestandard shows blondes are far from being standard. The multi-talented singer released her debut single “BLUE EYES”, which bundles all her frustrations into one song. The catchy melody is the perfect setting for blondestandard to introduce herself to the world, and we already know that this isn’t the last we’ll hear from her.

9. Amelia Moore — vinegar

There’s a new pop act to keep an eye on because Amelia Moore is ready to make some big moves this year. The 21-year-old singer released her debut single last year and continues to shine on her second song “vinegar”. Talking about the song, Amelia Moore says, “The creation of this song jump-started my healing process, and I hope it has the same effect on everyone who hears it.” Her honesty and purity in combination with her great vocals will get her far.

10. Renao — Nobody

Renao is a former Olympian in badminton but put his racket aside to launch his music career. The Indian-born but UK-based artist released his first song “Nobody” a month ago and finally shared the music video for the track. The song has a slight R&B touch but primarily consists of a good pop structure, making the song incredibly addictive. Renao has only just begun and there’s literally nobody that can deny that.
