“Crybaby,” Paloma Faith
Quirky British pop crooner Paloma Faith makes a triumphant return on "Crybaby," a soulful little slice of joyful, yet equally sad disco noise.
“If You Wanna,” Perfume

“Heart Full of Scars,” Rebecca Black
Comeback kid Rebecca Black continues to prove her vocal chops over and over again, and "Heart Full of Scars" is no different. An empowerment anthem set to a soaring EDM-pop soundtrack, Rebecca bares her heart—scars and all—on this one.
"SUGA SWEET," FAKY
A tropical, saccharine end of summer anthem with enough candy references to make your teeth rot, "SUGA SWEET" is the latest addictive bop from J-pop's rising group, FAKY.
“Cyber Stockholm Syndrome,” Rina Sawayama
London's cyber-R&B pop princess Rina Sawayama delivers a heaping dose of early 2000s eye candy in the video for her frosty electro-R&B bop, “Cyber Stockholm Syndrome.” Neon-lit and glossy all over, watch below and get “stuck in a crazy cyber world.”
