It's a breathtaking, beautiful vocal that cuts directly to the bone when she pulls out of that chorus with a question. It’s an awe-inspiring reinvention that manages to feel like it was beamed in from the golden age of soul while underscoring what a great song “Changes” always was. There’s a wistful quality to Bowie’s vocal on the verses as he sings of “seeing more and feeling less / Saying no but meaning less,” but there’s a hint of desperation in the way he sings the chorus, pleading “I can’t give everything away.” And that vocal is brilliantly complemented by two amazing solos played by jazz musicians – Donny McCaslin on a beautifully expressive sax break and Ben Monder playing Bowie home with the stunning majesty of his overdriven guitar lead.

"Take It From Me" has been part of the live set for a while now, but the studio version sounds more like a pop hit. These 60 songs had us hitting "repeat" all year long. The news of his passing just happened to break very late on a Sunday. Natasha Khan sets the tone for this suitably dreamy track with a trembling delivery of “There’s a tear in my lover’s eyes / He’s at my window / It’s a gloomy night,” while the drummer does his best impression of a beating heart and the guitarist gets lost in the watery reverb. Then The-Dream takes the spotlight to soulfully wail "I'm tryna keep my faith," which Kanye follows with "We on an ultralight beam / We on an ultralight beam / This is a God dream." Setting the tone for a clearly wounded yet defiant portrait of the problems she’s been having in her marriage with a sample of the Andy Williams easy-listening classic “Can’t Get Used to Losing You”? The most important stories and least important memes, every Friday. In fact, he tried to get a Chance the Rapper guest spot on the track, but nothing ever came of it.
As with any genre, there is a lot of unlistenable dreck on the radio and the charts, but they also contain songs that make you think, “Holy shit,” and songs that bypass thinking altogether to elicit sheer physical elation. “Nights,” Frank Ocean “Nights” is Blond(e)’s centerpiece just as “Pyramids” held Channel Orange together with a disco-funk jam that took off for ancient Egypt halfway through. / What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you” on the chorus hook while serving notice on the verses that she is not going down without a fight. Not a mask in sight at the CMAs, just a potential super spreader event vibes. Ten singles from 2015 remained in the top 10 for several weeks at the beginning of the year, while "I Would Like" by Zara Larsson" was released in 2016 but did not reach its peak until 2017. The beloved host was prone to pop up in some of our favorite shows. Frank’s toying with much less here — just a couple snapshots of lives he’s lived — but it’s one of few moments where an album that refuses to behave like modern hip-hop throws us a bone and damn near out-Drakes Drake. Jealous or crazy? She got what she wanted, and now it’s time for him to get his own damn cab ride home. This song has such an instantly engaging sense of atmosphere, an ominous descending bass riff riding a haunting percussion loop that sounds like someone clanking on a tin cup topped by deeply soulful vocals, which set the tone with “We gon’ need some drugs for the situation.” And that situation is tied to the Black Lives Matter movement, Jenkins’ vocal slipping into a trembling falsetto to plead “I can’t breathe,” the very words a dying Eric Garner repeated 11 times while lying face down on the sidewalk during his arrest in New York. It’s a haunting electronic ballad with lyrics that draw on both Nadsat, a language created by Anthony Burgess for “A Clockwork Orange,” and Polari, a form of slang favored by London’s gay club scene in the ‘70s. Five songs which charted in the top ten during 2016 spent at least 20 total weeks in that region of the chart: Drake's "One Dance" (featuring Wizkid and Kyla); Justin Bieber's "Sorry" and "Love Yourself"; and The Chainsmokers' "Don't Let Me Down" (featuring Daya) and "Closer" (featuring Halsey). This is the sexiest track the former Disney Channel star has done, the sparse production pushing her sultry delivery of the lyrics straight into your ear with no real filters, a trembling pout of “Can’t keep my hands to myself / No matter how hard I’m tryin’ to / I want you all to myself / You’re metaphorical gin and juice.” Max Martin produced it with Mattman and Robin, but those stripped-down verses feel more like the Neptunes in the ‘90s than the sort of thing one might associate with Martin.
That means no country, no “alt-pop” or “indie pop” or whatever you want to call it, and no modern rock, though all three genres have crept their way into The Week In Pop’s coverage this year. But what ultimately matters is the timeliness of Kanye's message. lead single but also daring enough of a performer to disappear into these wigged-out shrieks and moans like a man slowly turning into a ghoul.
It paints in broad strokes, and it aspires to be something bigger than one person’s private moment or even the province of a tiny community (both noble aspirations in their own right — please refer to Ecclesiastes and the Byrds for further comment). “So pardon if I’m impolite / I just really need your ass wit’ me / I’m sorry ‘bout the other night.” And what makes it even more effective is the way she slurs the lines as though this whiskey really got her feeling pretty. Whichever A-list artist turned it down made a big mistake. Not that this has anything to do with him, other than firing on all the same cylinders that made “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” a stone-cold classic. © 2020 Vox Media, LLC.

So: The focus here is strictly on songs aimed at top-40 radio and hits that performed well on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart. They stormed the charts in 2014 with a novelty single called “#Selfie,” the “Valley Girl” of Generation Selfie. Nor is it supposed to be.
"Justin Timberlake Debuts at No. 1 along the way to going triple-platinum. The best part is when it sounds like the song has just ended with one last reminder that she can’t keep her hands to herself, but then she brings it back in with a brilliantly phrased, “I mean, I could but why would I want to?” This one peaked at No. 10", "Drake's 'One Dance' Holds Atop Hot 100, Ariana Grande's 'Dangerous Woman' Returns to Top 10", "Rihanna Tops Hot 100 for Eighth Week, Ties the Beatles for Second-Most Total Weeks at No. 1 on Hot 100, Drake's 'Hotline Bling' Bounds to No. At the end of each chorus, the music stops and a female voice says, “He’s that kind of man, mama.”. Weirdly, “Cheap Thrills” surpassed “Chandelier” to become Sia’s biggest hit ever, and wonderfully, it brought Sean Paul back to pop radio saturation for the first time in a decade.
They even added a vocal hook that sounds like his Auto-Tuned vocals on “808s & Heartbreak.” But what ultimately matters are the lyrics. It sure does feel that way.

A moody dancehall-flavored ballad with a minimalist approach to constructing a groove, making excellent use of empty space, it features Drake as the sensitive lothario he plays so well.

It’s an upbeat dance song, riding a tropical house beat on an ode to the kind of connection two people who meet on the dance floor are likely to have. If making songs that sound like this is what led Zayn to bail on British heartthrobs One Direction, I can see that. She pleads “Can’t you see there’s no other man above you? The lead single released from “A Seat at the Table” is a melancholy slow jam that should speak directly to those of us who wish D’Angelo would make more records.
The Jonas Brother Most Likely To Succeed Without the Other Two has finally lived up to that title with a breakthrough album that spawned two multi-platinum dance hits, “Chains” and “Jealous.” “Close” is the first song we’ve heard from the post-breakthrough album, “Last Year Was Complicated.” And it’s a stunning soul-pop triumph with a killer chorus hook, state-of-the-art production and a spotlight-stealing guest appearance by the great Tove Lo, whose delivery of “Space is just a word made up by someone who’s afraid to get too close” does much to underscore the genius of that lyric. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very BIG part of life! 2.
And she instantly matches her bandmates’ intensity, setting the scene with “I can meditate all day but I still wanna kill myself / You guys really don’t understand what alone means.” And it only gets better when they hit those sudden stops and starts – like classic rockabilly played by punks – to underscore her vocal on “I got these New Age problems but they don’t exist / You can tell me I’m in trouble but I must insist the 8 Ball f—king lied to you.”, MORE AZCENTRAL ON SOCIAL: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest, Things To Do app: Get the best in events, dining and travel right on your device.

Unless you don’t like rock and roll (in which case we must never speak of this again).
“I've had plenty so I know you're mine / If only a prayer would make your touch so I'd feel it / But I'd be wasting time.” It’s a breathtaking vocal that somehow sounds more wounded than the words themselves. “Black Beatles,” Rae Sremmurd & Gucci Mane The irony of Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane’s first No. Icy Swedish pop precision and the plot of Gone Girl caught up together in a burbling synthetic slipstream. A magnificent pop song can jolt you back to life like nothing else, tapping into emotional and psychological realms only music can reach.
And then she signs off with the simple, devastating declaration, "How I missed you, my love.".
