Madonna Hung Up Tokischa

Madonna Is "Hung Up On Tokischa" & Hornier Than Ever

"Hung up, yo lo que 'toy en nota..." Her name is Dita. She'll be your culo nuevo tonight. Madonna is having a moment at the moment. She's never not had a moment in four decades to be fair, but there's absolutely something...afoot. From the bleached brows and long orange locks, to dancing…


Britney Spears Elton John

"Hold Me Closer": Britney & Elton's Song Means More Than the Music

"Hold me closer, tiny dancer..." It's been a while. It's been quite the past couple of years, actually. (Understatement of the century.) The last time we heard from Britney - musically speaking, anyway - was six years ago, in the form of Glory and its two singles: "Make Me..." with G-Eazy, and…


Tove Lo 2 Die 4

"2 Die 4": Tove Lo's 'Popcorn'-Sampling Tune Is One Tasty Treat

Well...at least one Queen of Pop is actually releasing their long-awaited, much-teased track called "2 Die 4." (You're welcome to join the party any day now, Addison...) And by Queen of Pop, I mean Queen of the Clouds. That's right: following the release of several 2022 standouts already -…


Jessie Ware Free Yourself

"Free Yourself": An Already Incredible Jessie Ware Era Begins

"Free yoursеlf, keep on moving up that mountain top..." Jessie Ware supplied a much-needed escape during the darkest months of 2020 with What's Your Pleasure?, then extended the pleasure with the Platinum edition one year later. And now, in case all that wasn't enough (too much is never…


Sophie Ellis-Bextor Hypnotized Wuh Oh

Getting "Hypnotized" With Sophie Ellis-Bextor & Wuh Oh

"You have always kept me hypnotized..." Two years ago, Sophie Ellis-Bextor unexpectedly became one of the early heroes of the pandemic. By the end of those particularly grim first weeks in March of 2020, Mademoiselle EB grabbed a microphone, threw on her sequined best, and turned her home into…


"Immature": FLO Builds Their Case for Girl Group Greatness

"Why you gotta be so immature?" FLO's on a roll. It's been a few months since the release of their viral debut single "Cardboard Box," which immediately caught the attentions of acts like SZA and JoJo on social media, and begged the question: can FLO make girl groups big again in the West? And…


Karen Harding Other Side of Love

On the "Other Side of Love" With Karen Harding

"After all these years, we still haven't given up..." It's hard to believe that it's already been eight years - nearly a decade! - since the supremely talented Karen Harding formally arrived on the scene with the still stunning, MNEK-produced "Say Something," declaring that she wished "to bring…


Charli XCX Tiesto Hot In It

Charli XCX's "Hot In It" With Tiësto Is Hot, Innit?

"Tonight, I'm gon' be rockin' it / Droppin' it / Shake my ass, no stoppin' it / I look hot in it, hot in it..." It's Charli, baby. Madame XCX might be X-iting soon from Atlantic Records following the release of Crash, the fifth and final studio album in her label deal, but not before supplying a…


MUNA What I Want

MUNA's "What I Want" & the Pursuit of Queer Joy

The irony of the first few opening lines of MUNA's latest single "What I Want" is that they contain about...maybe 3% of what I want. "When I go out again / I'm gonna drink a lot / I'm gonna take a shot 'cause that's just what I want / And when I see my friend / Put something on her tongue / I'm…


Nia Sultana Bigger Dreams

'Bigger Dreams': Nia Sultana's Debut Is a Soothing R&B Escape

"I was made for so much more..." When the world is on fire (which it is, down to the first Pride parties of the year), there are few things more comforting than turning down the lights, logging out from doom-scrolling and unwinding with a good, chill R&B record. (Maybe some Silk Sheets action too,…


Empress Of Save Me

'Save Me': Empress Of Is Turning a Breakup Into Bangers

"When I break, I fix myself real fast..." Breaking up sucks. The multi-talented Empress Of, born Lorely Rodriguez, is intimately familiar with the process of sunsetting a relationship. Her upcoming self-released 5-track Save Me EP, due out on June 24, was written throughout the last year following…


MUNA Home By Now

"Home By Now": MUNA Makes Sad Queer Dance Floor Magic Again

"If we'd kept heading the samе direction, would we be homе by now?" When it comes to MUNA, there's just something that consistently cuts to the core and hits just right, every single time. The three-piece band is steadily forging ahead towards their third studio album, the self-titled MUNA (out…
