Alice, otherwise known as Alice Chater, is continuing to Save Pop™. (No, pop doesn't actually need saving, to those easily offended by the phrase - but she does, genuinely, seem to be well on her way to carrying the torch from some of our most beloved pop queens.) "Hourglass" is Alice's latest…

Britney's Not-So-Secret Songwriter Sophia Somajo Has an EDM Hit With Alan Walker

You might not know Sophia Somajo (or Soso) by name - unless you're a true pop nerd, and/or a fellow PopJustice stan - but you most certainly already know some of her work. Under her own name and, much more often, pseudonyms like Tiffany Amber, the Swedish singer-songwriter has co-written smashes…


Lady Gaga I Want Your Love

Lady Gaga's Cover of Chic's 'I Want Your Love' Is Here, Three Years Later

"Nile...Chic...Gaga." The amount of gay excellence on this day, I just... So, Lady Gaga, who stars in a movie called A Star Is Born which I just wrote about hours ago (I ain't gonna sleep toni-i-ght...), recorded a Gaga-fied cover of Chic's "I Want Your Love" three years ago. It was used for Tom…

Come Get Your 'Honey': Robyn's Heavenly Club-Pop Masterpiece

"No, you're not gonna get what you need, but baby, I have what you want. Come get your honey..."

Mariah Carey GTFO Video

'GTFO': Mariah Carey's Festive Fuck-Off Moment of Moody Whatever

Look, I'll be honest, not that I was ever an entirely objective music journalist to begin with: I'm not going to not stan whatever Mariah Carey supplies. It's Mariah Carey. She wrote "My All." That said, "GTFO" is not a bad-but-I'm-pretending-it's-good song. I genuinely do really love it, even if…


Inna No Help

Inna, Romanian Queen of Pop, Needs No Help

Is Inna the most consistently reliable purveyor of dance-pop bops? If she's not, she certainly comes close. The 31-year-old Romanian diva, who has yet to do us wrong ever since "Hot" one full decade ago, has returned with yet another effortlessly hot, sleek club thumper - and this time, it's in…

'The Only': Sasha Sloan Sings the Songs of the Lonely Soul

Sasha Sloan is lonely, but not alone. ("Not alone, not alone, not alone," as a Most Personal Alien To Date once glitchily proclaimed.) The 23-year-old singer-songwriter, who perfectly captured the plight of the introvert at the party with her gorgeous "Normal" earlier in 2018, is back after inking…
