Hello and welcome! Do you want to distract yourself from the Presidential Election? Do you want to forget the fact that Nevada’s final verdict seems like an eternity away? Then welcome to V’s new music round-up, where we tune you into some of the week’s biggest and best releases, whether they be singles or albums.

Here’s this week’s top picks:

DISCO by Kylie Minogue

Minogue’s fifteenth (!) studio album is a welcome return to the dance-pop disco diva that epitomized the unbridled joy of the 2000s. Minogue continues to remain heavily underrated in the United States, but the disco-inspired (surprise, surprise) album could do well to ingratiate her back into the mainstream pop landscape.

Confetti by Little Mix

Like the name suggests, Confetti is the popular British girl group’s swerve into pure, unadulterated, and fun pop beats. Coming on the heels of a long promotional cycle that began with the release of the first single in March, this album is like the life of the party in their discography.

2000and4Eva by Bree Runway

Bree Runway has had a great year, filled with acclaimed singles. And now, she’s poised to dive headfirst into the musical landscape with 2000and4Eva, her debut mixtape. The British rapper and singer-songwriter makes bold statements and showcases a completely vulnerable side on the record, that includes collabs with Missy Elliott and Yung Baby Tate, among others.

Emergency Tsunami by Nav with Wheezy

Emergency Tsunami, a collaborative album with producer Wheezy, is Canadian rapper Nav’s first big release since Good Intentions, his second number one album, from earlier this year. The rapper joins forces with several rising forces in the game, including Gunna, Lil Baby, and Young Thug.

“Mood (Remix)” by 24kGoldn ft. Justin Bieber, J Balvin, and Iann Dior

Justin Bieber and J Balvin join in on the remix of the former number one single, making the song a little more…moody (apologies)? Bieber’s touch, in particular, has proven to be particularly golden when joining in on collaborations and remixes, particularly with the “Despacito” remix from 2018 that became a major success.

“Feel Something” by Armin Van Buuren ft. Duncan Laurence

Two musical favorites from Holland, Buuren and Laurence come together on this house and synth-pop track. Dutch DJ Buuren’s collaboration with Laurence, the most recent Eurovision Song Contest winner from 2019, captures a fleeting feeling of elation that should keep your mood light for a good part of the day. 

“Nothing Like a Love Song” by Hanson

Remember Hanson? The trio of brothers that became a sensation in the 90s with the song “MMMBop?” Well, they’ve been consistently making music (some really good stuff, too) and “Nothing Like a Love Song” off their newest compilation album is the epitome of that. The pop and rock-laced track embodies everything you love about the Jonas Brothers with vocals that should really put these boys back on your radar.

“Dancing in the Rain” by Yashua

Clocking in at seven minutes, this track chucks the emerging trend of shorter, streaming-app friendly songs. But the Latin American singer utilizes the full length of the track to explore his melancholy and where his different musical stylings take him, ranging from staccato drop beats to piano medleys.
