MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of April 18, 2011

5. Lady Gaga – Judas
Oh, the betrayal! Gaga’s newest single mashes the song structure of “Bad Romance” with the merciless pounding of Nicole Scherzinger’s “Poison” to create a shriek-filled ode to subservience and codependency. Whether you love it, hate it or proclaim it to be the work of the Devil, one thing’s for sure: “Judas” is about to plague the airwaves for the rest of the year. (LISTEN) (iTunes)

4. Nicole Scherzinger – Right There
Sure, her album came out exactly one month ago, but I’m still twerking my hips to this “What’s My Name?”-esque groove. Produced by Jim Jonsin and co-penned by the reliably naughty Ester Dean, Scherzy Baby’s Caribbean-tinged love letter scribed for the man who knows how to “go down, down, duh-down” is right up my street. (LISTEN) (iTunes UK)

3. Tinashe – Chainsaw
While ex-Stunners sensation Tinashe is still gearing up for the release of her debut solo single, this leak from her studio sessions with “Like A G6” hit-makers The Cataracs has the bass bumping so hard I’ve already misplaced my pants. (LISTEN)

2. Jennifer Lopez – Papi
Did J. Lo have you heading to the floor with her last hit? Good–now stay there! La Lopez is back with another Latin-infused RedOne club thumper–and arguably one of her best club anthems since “Waiting For Tonight.” Mm papi, love you! (LISTEN) (iTunes)

1. Wynter Gordon – Til Death
One of MuuMuse’s favorite pop vixens retuns with her long-awaited second Australian single, “Til Death”! Armed with a punchy chorus and some of the best lyrics in recent dance-pop history (“‘Til death do we party, with the music I die!”), Wynter’s latest is destined to make the rounds at every club across the galaxy. Watch for the MuuMuse Approved post later this week! (LISTEN) (iTunes Australia)
