Written By Sam Murphy on 03/16/2018

The best and the rest.

10. RL Grime - I Wanna Know (Feat. Daya)

RL Grime's prepping his second album with a new song I Wanna Know featuring US up-and-comer Daya. Daya's last EDM guest spot was with The Chainsmokers but she's far more suited to RL Grime's meaty, pop-leaning production.

9. Anna Lunoe - Blaze Of Glory

This is the most different song we've ever received from Anna Lunoe, leaving behind big room EDM for something more pop-focussed. It's instantly endearing as she channels bubblegum pop with some strong, ribcage-shaking production.

8. Kota Banks - Zoom

Kota Banks is back with the follow-up to one of last year's best pop songs Holiday. Zoom takes us in a slightly different, dancehall-influenced direction but it's still a sugary, flirtatious bop.

7. Hayley Kiyoko - Let It Be

Hayley Kiyoko's debut album is shaping up to be one of the most promising of the year. She's followed-up the brilliant Curious with a slower cut Let It Be that lets her explore her vocals more. We're still hooked and need this album right now.

6. LANKS - Twentyseven

LANKS got married over the weekend and the week has just gotten even bigger for him with a new song and album announcement.
twentyseven is taken from his forthcoming album of the same name and it touches on his own relationship as well as his own personal accomplishments and failures. It's a richly textured, warm track that rumbles along with a primal beat.

5. Sasha Sloan - Hurt

We loved Sasha Sloan's last single Normal and she's quickly backed it up with the equally great Hurt. Hurt is an intimate, personal song about a budding relationship. Sloan treats it delicately and creates a warm moment.

4. Nicole Millar - Gimme A Break

Nicole Millar is back with her first single of the year Gimme A Break and once again she's stepped it up.
Gimme A Break is Millar's most straight-up pop moment yet. Like Warheads sour candy, this is a sugary cut with bite. It's summery but its determined lyrics ensure it's got a sturdy backbone.

3. MØ & Jack Antonoff - Never Fall In Love

and Jack Antonoff have teamed up for Never Fall In Love off the Love, Simon soundtrack and it's a perky bop with a bitter heart. It's the funnest song on the soundtrack and one that really flips the script of breakup songs. It's sunny and colourful but somehow manages to pack a punch attitude-wise.

2. Sigrid - Raw

Sigrid just keeps rolling out the goods, returning with her first single of the year Raw. Raw is her most minimalistic drop to date, relying on an incredibly strong, quirky melody to carry it through. It's got a Julia Michael's Issues vibe that we're digging and Sigrid's voice sounds like it's floating on clouds.

1. Saweetie - B.A.N.

Saweetie is going to be one of the biggest new names in hip-hop this year and her High Maintenance EP is testament to that. B.A.N. is the opener and it's a slinky, effortless hit. We were doubtful that she'd ever be able to feel as at ease as she does on Icy Girl but somehow she's managed.
