This Week’s Music is a weekly column that discusses the weeks’ best, worst, and most interesting songs. We try to select songs of different artists and genres to keep things interesting and to please a variety of music fans.
For this week’s music column we decided to highlight three of the country’s most popular genres: pop, R&B, and country. Check them out:
Robyn – Honey
Swedish superstar Robyn made a comeback this year with her infectious single “Missing U,” marking the first time she’s released a single in eight extremely long years. “Missing U” is fun, sexy and everything you expect from a Robyn song, setting a high bar for the rest of her album. Luckily, “Honey” is more than up to the task. Initially teased in March, 2017, and featured in an episode of the HBO series “Girls,” fans have been waiting for over a year to hear this freaking song. Rest easy. It’s amazing.
Ella Mai – Boo’d Up
While “Boo’d Up” wasn’t released this week, Ella Mai’s new album was so it’s only logical to add its best song on this column’s R&B slot. Ella Mai is a British singer and songwriter who’s been having a pretty great year in terms of success and making good music. She recently performed on the AMAs where she was also nominated for several awards. Her first album is a big deal and could serve as an introduction to a much needed voice in the R&B genre.
Seth Ennis – Call Your Mama
Seth Ennis is a relative newcomer with his latest and biggest single, “Call Your Mama.” The music video, which was released this week, draws inspiration from the U.S. Marine Corps and has been viewed hundreds of times. The song has attracted the attention of fans and country music veterans Little Big Town, who provided their voices as back up.
