POPDOM TOP 20 JUNE 19TH 2015
It's official: Elliphant's "Love Me Badder" is an early contender now for song of the summer. It reigns for a third week in a row on top of the chart while Foxes' 80s-inspired "Body Talk" notches up one spot to number two. And, yes, don't forget Hasse's "Disco Dancer" extravaganza which enters the Top 3. Could it be next week's number 1? Who knows, who knows.
Let's also recap the upper end of the chart: the only one new arrival in the Top 10 is Sam Bruno's "Search Party". Pay very close attention to this one as it's the first official single from the "Paper Towns" soundtrack and it could eventually play out like last summer's "Boom Clap". Yes, that's correct. "Boom Clap" was a breakout solo hit for Charli XCX from the "Fault In Our Stars" movie and "Paper Towns" is the new adaptation of a John Green novel so expect the same scenario here. The fact that "Search Party" is super catchy and it sounds exactly like the track M.I.A. should've recorded right after "Paper Planes" will help too.
Also new to the chart this week are Elle Exxe's "Lost In L.A." (where else?), Tove Lo's "Timebomb" (Kylie reference), Zella Day's "High" (Tove Lo reference) and Róisín Murphy's "Evil Eyes" which is basically a movie audition footage carefully disguised as a music video. Enjoy and talk to you next week, Hasse!
