GUEST LIST WEEK
GLW 009: MIKE BRAND
GLW 010: Saskia Warwick (coming tomorrow)
MakeYouKnowLove - "Vitamin"
This is their only song, but they also produced some bops for other folks (like "PILLOWTALK" by ZAYN).
Nicole Millar - "Gimme A Break"
This is a great album, that deserved more attention when it came out. "Gimme A Break" is the biggest banger of the lot, though.
Liv Dawson - "Talk"
I genuinely don’t know why I enjoy this song so much, but the “We don’t need to talk” hook will be in my head for the rest of my life.
Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa - "One Kiss"
I hope 2019 has even more Dua Lipa.
Ariana Grande - "no tears left to cry"
This is the year that Ariana showed everyone that she belongs up there with the greats.
Childish Gambino - "Summertime Magic"
Fuck all the haters who don't think Childish can headline Coachella. If he got up there and did "Summertime Magic, This is America," "Sober," and "Heartbeat" it would be a better set list than most other headliners.
Troye Sivan, Ariana Grande - "Dance to This"
It was tough deciding between a few songs on the stellar album. "Dance to This" just beat out "Bloom."
Selena Gomez - "Back To You"
The first time I’ve been into a Selena Gomez song, now I understand why she used to be the #1 female artist on Spotify (currently beaten by Ariana).
Ariana Grande - "thank u, next"
This is where everyone else realized she is one of the greats. (And she got her first Billboard #1).
Cyn - "Moment of Truth"
Cyn hasn’t released an album yet, but some of her singles are great. This is her most fun, campy, saccharine pop song. For something a little more “indie” check out "Believe."
Teyana Taylor - "WTP"
This song wins the award for “Song most sampled at Bushwig” (A drag festival). I swear I heard it twenty times over two days, eventually I had to ask what the song was.
Charli XCX, Troye Sivan - "1999"
This should have come out a few months earlier so it could have been the SOTS (Song of the summer).
Justin Timberlake - "SoulMate"
A one-off that is better than anything on Man of the Woods.
Duke Dumont - "Runway"
Top gym song of the year. As soon as it says “Take it to the runway” I push the treadmill speed waaaay up.
