It's Tuesday! Time for another round of "5 Must-Hear Pop Songs of the Week"!
This week's roundup features promising up-and-comers and established international pop royalty alike, including my favorite Mexican pop princess, some R&B flirtations from Ne-Yo's rising star, and the almighty comeback of a Swedish girl group member gone solo.
1.) Little Boots, "Motorway"
Little Boots has some big news this week: She's back with a brand-new album in May! And to briefly satisfy our endless hunger for the new record, the U.K. electro-pop princess has graciously uploaded "Motorway," a new track off of Nocturnes. "Motorway" is a moodier selection than the past few cuts from the collection (including "Shake" and "Every Night I Say A Prayer"), which sees the songstress evoking shades of Saint Etienne and Kylie Minogue. "Meet me on the motorway/ Together we can make our great escape," she croons along the atmospheric track, full of dramatic piano chords and hypnotic, tranced-out pulsations. Another tantalizing tease of what's to come? You bet.
