The Music Week Playlist, January 30, 2019

Music Week’s guide to the most essential tracks of the moment…

ARIANA GRANDE
7 Rings (Republic)

Apparently Thank U, Next and Imagine weren’t enough for Ariana, who has charts everywhere in a headlock with this bassy slow jam. If you didn’t know it already, 2019 is hers.

KAREN O & DANGER MOUSE
Woman (BMG)

There’s an enjoyable weirdness about this glammy rocker from Karen O and Danger Mouse. From the upcoming album Lux Prima, out March 15.

TOM WALKER
Just You And I (Relentless)

Soft of beard and deep of voice, Tom Walker seems a clean cut pop star, which makes this tale of quadruple vodkas and “puking up” oddly compelling.

JERRY WILLIAMS
David At The Bar (Sunglasses Records)

Inspired by a chat with a stranger in a Portsmouth pub, Jerry Willliams’ new single is perhaps her most touching yet. “Here’s to a good life,” indeed.

FOUR OF DIAMONDS
Blind (Virgin EMI)

Proving that leaving in week five of The X Factor is no bad thing, Four Of Diamonds maintain their crusade for pop glory with this insistent bop.

SIGRID
Don’t Feel Like Crying (Island)

Sigrid batters heartache round the chops with a massive chorus, which, thanks to clever production, dangles tantalisingly before taking flight.

NILÜFER YANYA
In Your Head (ATO Records)

The 23-year-old Londoner trails debut album Miss Universe (March 22) with waves of guitars and drums that crash beneath confused lyrics. Brilliant.
