In case you’ve been hidden under a rock for the last couple of months, Freddie Mercury-mania has swept the land due to the highly-anticipated Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, hitting our screens. And now, as if the screaming-hordes level of hype wasn’t enough, Wonderland babe Troye Sivan has played tribute to the iconic band with his own interpretation of the 1976 gospel-inspired track, “Somebody To Love.” Expect a dreamy, pop-fuelled cover to cry to.
All the songs we’ve got on repeat right now.
Troye Sivan – “Somebody To Love”
Puma Blue – “Lust”
South Londoner Jacob Allen has been making waves for some time now with his brand of hypnotic jazz-influenced R&B – all produced under his enigmatic stage name, Puma Blue. Taken from his brand new EP, “Blood Loss,” his latest released track, “Lust,” is a woozy, late-night jam inspired by Erykah Badu’s iconic song “Didn’t Cha Know.” To be enjoyed post-midnight, twirling in a smoke-filled living room.
Carly Rae Jepsen – “Party For One”
Ever wanted to see a bunch of people really, I mean really, feel themselves in a hotel room? Well, the latest track from Carly Rae Jepsen, “Party For One,” plus the accompanying feel-good visuals make for a catchy anthem dedicated to self-love. But don’t think cringe or twee for one second. Expect an all-inclusive montage of one-person parties, plus bread face-squishing and an older lady inspecting sex toys and candy thongs.
Robyn – “The Music That Inspired Honey”
Did we actually need another reason to heavily, intensely stan Robyn? Probably, not. For the longest time, she’s been our poster-girl for pulling yourself through breakups and heartaches via last-on-the-dancefloor therapy. And after dropping her first solo album in 8 years on us last month, Honey, the singer has now given us a heavenly playlist of all the songs which inspired the record. David Bowie, Prince, Marvin Gaye and Kate Bush are just a few of the goodies featured.
Busted – “Nineties”
They gave us 10/10 noughties smash hits like “Crashed the Wedding”, “Year 3000” and “What I Go To School For” – accompanied by equally brilliant music videos. And the world collectively mourned when the trio broke up, but three years ago our hearts were healed with the news of their reunion. Now the boyband have dropped their new single, “Nineties” (taken from their fourth album Halfway There) and it’s good old rollicking golden era fun. Air guitar solos all round.
