It's Tuesday! Time for another round of "5 Must-Hear Pop Songs of the Week"!
This week's roundup includes a rowdy club banga between one of the industry's most in-demand songwriters and iconic female rappers, funky freshness from a Scissor Sisters alum, and a brand-new breakup ballad by K-pop's premiere queen.
Del Marquis, Ester Dean, BoA and more in 5 Must-Hear Pop Songs Of The Week.
1.) Del Marquis featuring Xavier, "Let Me Tickle Your Fancy"
With the Scissor Sisters on indefinite hiatus, the band's members have been left to their own devices. And for guitarist Del Marquis, that means getting a little funky. Teaming up with NYC singer Xavier last year, the talented musician crafted Tickle, a six-track mixtape full of slick, sensual vibrations and fierce disco struts. The track that kicked it all off, "Let Me Tickle Your Fancy," is actually a cover of Jermaine Jackson's delightfully semi-obscure 1982 track (which featured Devo, no less!). "Let me tickle your fancy/ let me excite your soul," Xavier tempts above the nostalgic, early '80s synthesizers. And if you're catching a whiff of Prince in the production, there's good reason: New Power Generation, the occasional live backing band for the musical icon, joined Del in the studio.
