Iggy Azalea Reigns Our Weekly New Song List
The "Fancy" rapper is all over our #TrendingTuesday playlist, along with new track from Phillip Phillips and Future...
#TrendingTuesday is here, everybody! Leading the pack is new music from hip-hop newcomer Iggy Azalea, whose music keeps getting bigger and bigger, with her latest album The New Classic available today. Who else made the list of the hottest songs that are fresh on the Web this week? None other than a new World Cup Anthem from a Spanish star, an ode to two of the most gorgeous women on the planet, and an uplifting alt-rock jam from an American Idol alum. Read on, new music lovers!
10. Timeflies - Monsters (ft. Katie Sky)
Why it's trending: Boston pop duo Timeflies have released a gorgeous new single that makes us wish we were dating one of them. Or both. We know we can't have our cake and eat it too. :(
Best lyric line: "I see your monsters, / I see your pain / Tell me your problems / I'll chase them away..."
9. Ricky Martin - Vida
Why it's trending: The latest World Cup Anthem is out, and it's from none other than Latin heartthrob Ricky Martin! Simply titled "Vida", which means "life" in Spanish, this is destined to be a massive worldwide hit. Ole!
Best lyric line: "Finally the time has come / Let's just dance in the sun / Everybody grab someone / And let rhythym make us one..."
8. Phillip Phillips - Fly
Why it's trending: Inspiring singer/songwriter (and American Idol alumni) Phillip Phillips is back with another guitar-driven ballad about feeling low but staying positive. The twang in the guitars makes it almost country, which we have no problem with!
Best lyric line: "You think your fight is over / It's only so much closer / I reach my hands to the sky / And fly..."
7. tUnE-yArDs - Wait For A Minute
Why it's trending: Funky, fresh singer/songwriter tUnE-yArDs is known for her biting lyrics and repeating vocals/instrumentations, but this new number from her forthcoming LP is a bit slower and serious. It's all about self-esteem, and we think the pop world needs an honest song like this.
Best lyric line: "They say hang on / I promise them I will / But I don't know for how long / Wait for a minute..."
6. Pharrell Williams - Here
Why it's trending: Pharrell is behind EVERY musical project these days. We're not kidding. His latest effort was producing original tracks for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack, out today, and his own track "Here" is...surprisingly beautiful? Them strings.
Best lyric line: "My dear it seems we're here again / So much for effort / Isn't it clear we're here again / Our thing right where we left it..."
5. Kelis - Cobbler
Why it's trending: We're totally feeling the new album from R&B diva Kelis, whose sassy singles have won us over time after time. On Food, her new release, many of the song titles are, well, edible, and "Cobbler" is one of the standouts of the funky, fun compilation. Maybe it's because we're really craving peach cobbler...
Best lyric line: "You're the best I've ever done / Like a winner like I won / I couldn't love you more / If I tried I'd go for tons..."
4. Jack White - Lazaretto
Why it's trending: This hard-hitting new single from Jack White kinda came out of nowhere! The newly-solo guitarist and songwriter is gearing up for his second album, due out this year, and if the theme of it is as intense and thumping as "Lazaretto", we wanna hear more.
Best lyric line: "They threw me down in the Lazaretto / Bored rotten, bored rotten / Making models of people I used to know / Out of coffee and cotton..."
3. Neon Trees - First Things First
Why it's trending: Pop Psychology, Neon Trees' third studio album, is fresh on the shelves today, and we have nothing but love for the colorful quartet. The closing track off the new record is a deep jab at somebody that we think is personal for front man Tyler Glenn.
Best lyric line: "You are never gonna get / Everything you want in this world / First things first / Get what you deserve..."
2. Future - I Won (ft. Kanye West)
Why it's trending: Who else would record a song that's all about comparing their ladies to trophies? Both Future and Kanye aren't saying their women are "trophy wives", though: they just feel #winning because of the amazing ladies who love them. Ciara and Kim Kardashian, anyone?
Best lyric line: "You already know that you the perfect one / Girl when I'm with you, feel like a champion / Ever since I got with you I feel like I done won me a trophy..."
1. Iggy Azalea - Fancy (ft. Charli XCX)
Why it's trending: Calling her debut LP The New Classic that just dropped today, we've been excited to hear this thing after the handful of EPs from the Australian rapper. It's a collection of a fusion of hip-hop, R&B, and EDM jams that we can't help but "Bounce" to, but the album's highlight is definitely "Fancy" -- can't you taste this gold?
Best lyric line: "First things first, I'm the realest (realest) / Drop this and let the whole world feel it (let 'em feel it)..."
