‘Lola’ – Iggy Azalea and Alice Chater

From one iconic collab to another, Iggy Azalea teamed up with rising star Alice Chater on her new single ‘Lola’.

‘Automatic’ – Lil Miquela

Your favorite robot superstar is back with a brand new single! Miquela’s truly been making 2019 her bitch as she’s been releasing constant bangers throughout the year and even jumped on Lauv’s new single for an R&Beep remix. Automatic is a moderate techno dance anthem which Miquela says is “about meeting for the first time and just knowing they’re gonna change your life”. Whether you can pin that to a real-life experience or not, it’s love at first listen with this jam!

‘A Palé’ – Rosalía

Fresh from claiming her MTV EMAs Rosalía has dropped her new single, ‘A Palé’. The heavy bass track follow’s her critically acclaimed 2018 album ‘El Mal Querer’ and was co-produced by the Spanish star alongside El Cuincho and Frank Dukes. It begins with a euphonious melody before explodes into the bass-heavy trap beats for the duration of the track. This single is a total contrast from Rolsalía’s recent pop-urbano tracks, proving that she’s no one-trick pony.

‘Bloodmoney’ – Poppy

Poppy is back with the third single from her forthcoming album ‘I Disagree’ which is set to release on January 10th. ‘Bloodmoney’ opens with angelic autotuned vocals before the experimental pop star flips a total 180 and gives a more glitchified metal sound with a good-girl giving a bit of screamo and has a hell of an electric guitar solo. Think of heaven and hell having a sing-off and that’s kind of the definition of Poppy’s latest release. And we’re here for it.

‘Cute Without You’ – Emma Blackery

After a quiet year on the music front, Emma Blackery is back with a re-release of her early 2019 single ‘Cute Without You’ and this time she’s brought out a live version and an acoustic version! The song was originally written as part of a challenge she set herself on YouTube to write a song in 24 hours and was such a bop she decided to release it. If you’re thirsty for more music from Emma, she’s recently taken to Twitter to say she’s recently recorded one song with another to be recorded next week, so it’s on the way!

‘Make It To Christmas’ – Alessia Cara

Alessia Cara has one wish this Christmas: for her relationship to make it to the holidays. Alessia sings about her relationship woes in her husky voice to strings and a big band which are topped with festival bells and a chorus of back-in vocals, but thankfully though the lyrics are pretty sad, the plead comes in an upbeat tempo so you can still get your jingle on while wiping away your tears.
