The 8 Best Songs Of The Week

The music industry is completely awake after a short winter break, and we discovered some delicious songs last week from a.o. Crystal Murray and Jaguar Jonze. These past seven days weren’t bad either because a ton of new tunes were released. Since we all know that sharing is caring, we picked our eight favorite songs of the week and can ensure you that they slap!

1. Donna Missal — insecure

We want to take a moment to applaud Donna Missal for her whole metamorphose, which is showcasing a brand new side of her artistry. After releasing two rock-inspired albums, she’s heading into a new direction with hyper pop-inspired electropop. Her new single “insecure” is another track produced by Sega Bodega and Mura Masa, who are helping her with the creation of her new musical universe. Her new single has very minimal electronic elements but manages to move us within the first seconds. This is going to be a strong era.

2. Stromae — L’enfer

It was a big surprise when Stromae suddenly started to sing during his appearance on the French TV News and released “L’enfer”. The second single of his highly anticipated third album Multitude sees him open up about his dark thoughts and just confirms what we all already knew: he is one of a kind. This song is just so intriguing, gives you goosebumps all over your body, and opens the door for many new conversations about mental health in the media.

3. King Princess and Foushée — Little Brother

The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter King Princess has a special place in our hearts since she released her phenomenal debut album Cheap Queen. Her sharp songwriting has helped her gain a strong following in the queer community because of the self-reflective lyrics and honest stories. In her new single “Little Brother”, she’s joined by the “Deep End” singer Foushée and creates a cozy, heart-warming atmosphere. King Princess is wearing her crown with pride.

4. Aluna, Diplo, and Durante — Forget About Me

AlunaGeorge has some of the most fun dance tunes ever behind their name, so it’s no surprise that Aluna wants to continue within the same style on her solo work. Her debut album Renaissance already got us on our feet in 2020, but her latest single “Forget About Me” could become our new favorite track of hers. With the help of Diplo and Durante, she created a very colorful and joyful sound that makes us count down to summer even more. This song already gets a spot on our ‘potential summer hits 2022’ list.

5. Abby Roberts — Paramaniac

With over seventeen million followers on TikTok, Abby Roberts belongs to the biggest social media stars in the UK. We’ve been a fan of her amazing style for a while now and were curious to hear her music when she announced her debut single. “Paramaniac” is a melancholic pop song with cute rock influences in the chorus and has everything to make our little music hearts beat a bit faster. This is a strong start to her new chapter, and we can ensure you that this isn’t the last time you’ll seen Abby on Enfnts Terribles.

6. yeule — Too Dead Inside

The post-pop hero yeule first appeared in 2012 and will celebrate the tenth anniversary with the release of her second album Glitch Princess on February 4th. Her music is often described as post-pop with soundscapes that let you transcend to a different world. Her new single “Too Dead Inside” has a mysterious undertone with its phenomenal vocal production, and we’re waiting in suspense how this album will turn out as a whole.

7. Scuti — Eating

South London has another fierce artist to be proud of with the upcoming rapper Scuti. Her first EP This Is Skoo was praised by some important music outlets and immediately made her one to watch. On “Eating”, Scuti is blowing us away with her massive talent. The beat of the track gives her the ability to show different facets of her musicality with strong bars and an immensely cool chorus. Scuti ate with “Eating”, and we hope she’ll keep feeding us with such tracks.

8. Ö, Nömak, and A.G. Cook — AFK

PC Music’s newest signing Ö has the honor of celebrating his PC Music debut with a collaboration with mastermind A.G. Cook. “AFK” is a musical experience with lots of little plot twists and crazy sounds. The clarity in some parts gets disturbed by distorting elements, which enforces a great duality between two sound worlds and keeps the thrill for the whole four minutes.
