Kylie Minogue Lady Gaga

Kylie Minogue & Lady Gaga Marry the Night & Do Pride Right

This Kylie Minogue has some fucking nerve. It's apparently not enough to have already blessed us with a Dua Lipa-fied "Real Groove" at the top of the year, as well as a sexed-up-to-the-stars assist on Olly Alexander's "Starstruck" remix in May. Apparently keeping us foaming at the mouth with…

MØ Live to Survive

"Live To Survive": The Triumphant Return of MØ

MØ's back. (Everyone kind of just says "mo," but it's technically pronounced like meu.) The Danish superstar singer-songwriter, who you surely know and love best from the inescapable "Lean On" with Major Lazer and DJ Snake (at one point, the most-streamed song of all time), as well as "Cold Water"…


Sigrid Mirror

Sigrid's "Mirror" Is a Self-Assured Disco Pop Smash

"I love who I see looking at me in the mirror." Not so fast, Olivia Rodrigo. While the sound at radio might be steadily shifting towards something that resembles an early '00s pop-punk revival (which is great in its own right), last year's wave of disco-inspired pandemic pop ushered in by the…


Kylie Minogue Years and Years Olly Alexander Starstruck

Kylie Minogue Takes Years & Years' "Starstruck" to Another Galaxy

"I can't help it / I get starstruck around you..." Kylie Minogue is making gay dreams come true yet again. Like the Green Fairy she played in Moulin Rouge, with a little shimmy and a shake (and a healthy dollop of glitter), the "Chocolate" chanteuse just makes everything feel infinitely (disco)…

Little Mix Galantis David Guetta

Little Mix's "Heartbreak Anthem" Is Another Big Shout Out to Their Ex

“Hello, it’s me, your ex...” Against all odds, Little Mix is thriving. At a time when most girl groups historically lose steam - in fact, they’ve outlived the lifespan of a majority of those acts already - the newly minted trio is defying expectations and keeping it moving more than ever, even…


Sugababes One Touch Anniversary

The Sugababes Are Back, And Still on Overload 20 Years Later

"Strange fear I ain't felt for years..." The Sugababes - Version 1.0, briefly known as Mutya Keisha Siobhan, or MKS, or the Origibabes - are making a grand return. Sort of. Following a one-off comeback with DJ Spoony in the form of "Flowers" in 2019, and years of stop-start announcements (and…


Aespa Next Level

aespa Takes It to the "Next Level"

aespa's back, and they're bringing their battle against the Black M-m-m-mamba to the "Next Level."

That's partially because…


Jessie Ware Please

Say 'Please': Jessie Ware Extends the 'Pleasure'

Hello! It's been a while. I moved back to New York City this past weekend. Eight years in Manhattan just wasn't enough, I guess. I sort of forgot (okay, minimized in my mind) how much unpacking, buying, fixing and doing is involved in uprooting your life, as well as all of the heavy emotions and…
