Songs of the Week 178: August 26 – September 1

calvin harris#5. Calvin Harris Feat. Sam Smith – Promises

This is fully a song I expect to be utterly sick of within the year. But at the moment, it’s pretty damn tough to turn off.

lpx#4. LPX – Might Not Make It Home

Don’t often come across many pop anthems anymore. LPX’s Might Not Make It Home is cute personified in a song.

blood orange#3. Blood Orange Feat. Puff Daddy & Tei Shi – Hope

YUP. Puff Daddy. So good. First half of the song is definitely better than the latter half IMO. Really digging the crossover vocals between Tei Shi & Puff tho.

labrose#2. Labrose – Gravity

There is so much here to like. The falsetto vocals. The range. The pace and chorus. It’s all kinda awkward, yet stunning.

sg lewis#1. S.G. Lewis Feat. AlunaGeorge – Hurting

This came out of nowhere. Love S.G. Lewis. Love AlunaGeorge. Did not see a collab coming and boy does it work. The only gripe I have is that the best part is the last 30 seconds, which really should have been the true chorus. Not that the regular chorus is bad or anything… but that last bit…. well, it’s downright magical.
