Song of the week:
Julie Bergan feat Tunji Ige — ‘If You Love Me’
In a week of huge pop releases the best tune of the week comes from Norwegian pop practitioner Julie Bergan. Three years ago we fell in love with Julie’s second single ‘Younger’ (both the radio version, which is like a lost Little Mix Number One, and the Oliver Nelson remix still sound totally brilliant), but she hasn’t topped it UNTIL TODAY.
New Music Friday: Julie Bergan at the top, a Thong Song remix at the bottom, various songs in between
Wrong of the week:
Ed Sheeran — ‘…Baby One More Time’
We quite like the idea of the Spotify Singles thing — it’s basically their version of Radio 1’s Live Lounge — but this cover is a big no. Realistically the JCY rework of Sisqo’s ‘Thong Song’ is today’s worst release, but it’s not quite as distressing as Ed Sheeran mailing [EDIT: We meant ‘mauling’ but mailing works in the sense that it’s making us go postal, return to sender and/or put a card through his door telling him we’ve left it in his wheelie bin] one of the 250 Wonders Of The Pop Age.
Susanne Sundfør is back!
Another week, another new Sia song,
