Julia Clara - Still Dancing

Julia Clara released her debut single ‘Still Dancing’ two years ago and it did good, getting over 100K streams on Spotify. Not a lot has happened since, as is usual. But then something happened: a month ago her song was featured on a Turkish Netflix show and her song has been climbing the Turkish Viral Chart ever since, the track is now at 15th place! Great track.

Adam Ambrose - Relax

Basically, coming out of nowhere Adam's latest single earned him placements on a number of New Music Friday playlists, including the global one! Earning him a solid 70K streams on his first day. How did he do it? Our guess is that he submitted his track using the Spotify playlist tool and got lucky. Well, maybe not only lucky, the song sounds great! He also submitted it to Staff Picks saying "Relax is about taking a step back and living life, not just letting it go by. Often we tend to get caught up in life's stresses and can forget that life is not all about work. Once in awhile you have to have fun."

Lil Nas X - Old Town Road

Wow, this song blew up! Undoubtedly one of the biggest genre the coming years is going to be Country rap, and Old Town Road is proof of that. This "Red Dead Redemption 2" inspired song is now the most streamed on our platform. I got the horses in the back!

Whoshafee - Yodeling Walmart Boy

There's a lot of remixes of the YouTube sensation Walmart Boy out there but this one is the best one, hands down. Indian DJ Whoshasfee has created a melodic and uplifting song standing on its own. It doesn't rely too heavy on the soundbite from the title, it's just there in the background adding a chilling and melodramatic touch to the track. This is great!

staffPicks-Lauretta

Lauretta Yemoja - Gimme!

Nigerian singer Lauretta Yemoja delivers a great sounding reggae track featuring Jynnie Flow on the first verse starting with "My African girl is hotter than fire". Yemoja has a great voice and flow, she deserves more listeners! This is how she descries herself: "I am a goddess changing the world with sound waves". We can only agree.

staffPicks-SRC

SRC - Desert Rose

Is this the Italian Yung Lean? A dreamy and slurring song that sounds absolutely mesmerising with Italian lyrics. Local European rap is getting bigger by the day and Italy is no exception. Keep an eye on SRC, they could become big. This song has over 60K streams in less than a month. Great work, great song!
