Apinch of aural sunshine woven with the feel-good vocals of a junior MJ, this is the spirit song for those struggling to believe assessments and rain are now the status quo to help them to hang onto summer that little bit longer.
NOT: Robin Schulz feat. Francesco Yates
With plentiful references to “sugar”, “spice”, “cherry lips” and “angel eyes”, you’d be forgiven for thinking this was a “My First Make-up Set” jingle for the Mizz Magazine demographic. Sadly, this is not the case, and the fresh club goer is doomed to the meh-notonous drone of “Sugar, how you get so fly?” I don’t know, Robin, but it sure wasn’t by listening to this.
LONG SHOT: Zara Larsson
With Major Lazer’s summer smash, ‘Lean On’ dominating holiday playlists, we all glanced over this Swedish songstress with dreamy Rihanna-like vocals. Don’t make the mistake again, and make sure not to miss her second stab at the UK playlists, ‘Never Forget You’ with MNEK.
FORGOT: Las Ketchup
‘The Ketchup Song (Asereje)’
This one could have just as easily been the ‘Cha Cha Slide’ or the ‘Macarena’, for what I’m really mourning is the dance craze classic. Let’s be honest, awkward bump, bop or grind, no one knows what to do with their bodies in da club. At least these tunes gave us some instruction.
