It's Tuesday! Time for another round of "5 Must-Hear Pop Songs Of The Week"!
This week's roundup features sad, sad disco from across the pond, a slammin' remix of one of the year's most euphoric pop anthems, and a moody alt-R&B ode to miscommunication.
1.) Katy B, "Crying For No Reason"
Need a good reason to cry? Obviously. U.K. alt-dance diva Katy B has been churning out reliably gorgeous, '90s house-leaning tunes for well over a year now -- from "What Love Is Made Of" to "5 AM." "Crying For No Reason," the latest single off of her upcoming sophomore LP, Little Red, however, takes the songstress into the touchy territory of sad disco balladry.
The result is one of Katy's most earnest, heartbreaking productions yet: "How can I walk with a smile, get on with my day/ When I deceived myself pretending it's all OK," Katy cries above the gorgeous, glittering pulsations -- recalling a little bit of Robyn and Girls Aloud in the process. And then, when the track soars, and she starts belting out that devastating chorus at the very end? "Feel the tears roll down!" Oh no. Good luck getting through this one without a box of tissues on the dance floor.
