Kylie Minogue Olly Alexander Second to Midnight

"A Second to Midnight": Kylie Minogue & Years & Years Shine Like a Light in the Dark (And Do Drag!)

Kylie™ made the dreary days of lockdown a whole lot brighter last year with her 15th studio album Disco, a loving ode to the genre, and a most necessary nostalgic escape in the bleakest of days. One year later, things aren't...worse necessarily, but we're not back to normal yet, either. Whatever…


Charli XCX Good Ones

"Good Ones": Charli XCX Enters Her Evil Main Pop Girl Era

"I always let the good ones go..." Charli XCX is a sell-out. Or, well, that's the goal. Over the past few months, our dearest Charlotte Aitchison, She of Track 10 Fame, has been distancing from left-lane, artsy-fartsy, experimental alt-hyper-pop princess sonic territory and not-so-subtly…


Griff One Night

"One Night": Griff Tries to Dance the Darkness Away

"Can I have one night, one night, one night where it's just me alone?" Griff's still got the good stuff - arguably more than ever. The 20-year-old Chinese-Jamaican UK singer-songwriter's been on my radar (on my ray-duh) for a minute now - at least over a year now - and she's been steadily…


Dua Lipa's "Love Again" Video Takes Us to Future Yeehawlgia

You know, we were just joking on the pod about Dua Lipa going full-on Joanne for DL3 a week ago. Clearly, she's been listening. Our Darling Dua has been Dua-ing it right time and time again with her over-a-year-long-and-going-strong Future Nostalgia campaign, and it's become clear that she has no…


Utada Hikaru Pink Blood

"Pink Blood": Hikaru Utada Is on a Sexy, Self-Assured Journey

The Utadaissance continues. Hikaru Utada - Utada, if you're nasty - is having quite a moment already in 2021. With a mere tweet here and there and a live Instagram Q&A or two (yes, English music is coming, no, she still hasn't played Kingdom Hearts, you nerds), Hikki's still managed to strike a…


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"…


Michelle Visage STEPS Heartbreak In This City Music Video

Michelle Visage Is a Pop Star Again, Thanks to STEPS

Michelle Visage is truly living the STEPS stan-tasy. While most of us might know her best (or, at least, most frequently) as RuPaul's green-averse right-hand as a judge on RuPaul's Drag Race for the past decade, others will remember - certainly thanks to the roast episodes in particular - that…

Nicole Scherzinger She's Bingo Luis Fonsi MC Blitzy

Nicole Scherzinger & Luis Fonsi Made an Absurd Bingo Game Bop

Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger - Miss Scherzy, if you're nasty - is back. Kind of.

Tia Kofi Outside In Drag Race UK RuPaul

From the "Outside In" With Tia Kofi (Interview)

She is Tia Kofi, and she's a lovely Brown caffeinated beverage. Drink it up! While her sisters might have (rudely) dubbed her "Baroness Basic" on her critically hailed second season of RuPaul's Drag Race UK, the 30-year-old Essex-born drag superstar took the competition by storm with her quick…


Tove Lo Pressure Martin Garrix

Tove Lo & Martin Garrix Apply the "Pressure"

Tove Lo, Queen of the Clouds™, can truly do no wrong. After supplying us with her Sunshine Kitty in 2019 (followed by the 2020 reissue), as well as stellar one-offs like "Bikini Porn," her perfect cover of "I'm Coming" and her cross-cultural club tag-team "Don't Say Goodbye," the 33-year-old…
