Future Hits: Canada’s Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj’s Club Banger And Others Below The Radar
Some of the world’s hottest music gets its start overseas. It usually isn’t until a few months later that it takes off here in the states. Perusing through various worldwide music charts and social media platforms, I’ve found songs that could be some of the most popular songs in the states in the future. Check them out!
Hedley Kiss You Inside Out – Listen
I stumbled upon Canadian rock band Hedley’s new single, Kiss You Inside Out, when I was channel surfing and came across their live performance at the MMVAs (MuchMusic Video Awards). Almost instantaneously, I heard a hit.
Hovering steadily in the top 5 on Canada’s music charts, Kiss You Inside Out is a rock/pop track about a girl surrendering to a man’s seductive ways. The infectious “oooohhhhhhh” in the chorus adds a light serenade to the dirty lyrics. Reminiscent in style to what Maroon 5 would have produced early on, Kiss You… is a real cool summer song that will seduce you with the passion and sex appeal vocalist Jacob Hoggard exudes.
Nicki Minaj Pound The Alarm – Listen
The fourth official single from her sophomore album “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,” Nicki’s Pound The Alarm is a club thrashing song that beats Starships.
Still absent from the Billboard Hot 100, Pound The Alarm should have been released earlier as it is the perfect song to emulate the summer – it’s been a hit overseas for almost two months now. Following the same format as its pop predecessor, Pound uses more house/dubstep infused beats to break down the chorus. Though her rap game is lighter when compared to other songs, she still wants you to, “come fill my glass up a little more.” I don’t know what she’s drinking, but if it makes her wanna dance, I’ll take some too.
Taio Cruz There She Goes – Listen
No, this isn’t another cover of The La’s infamous 80’s rock song of the same name.
Taio Cruz, who has yet to have another hit in the states following Dynamite and Break Your Heart, but has had plenty of chances to score another one from his latest album “TY.O.” His latest single is what could connect to American audiences because it kind of sounds like Dynamite but with a better beat. The lyrics are kind of cheesy, but it’s a great song to dance to.
Timomatic Can You Feel It – Listen
Timomatic sounds like the Aussie answer to our Chris Brown or Usher.
His latest single Can You Feel It has the Chris Brown vibe but with Usher’s vocals. This is a short dance nugget that is high energy and sure to be a hit in the clubs whenever it gets here. With Usher having a comeback in the last two years with his music, there’s no reason why we can’t give Timomatic a chance with this song.
Florence + The Machine Spectrum (Say My Name) – Listen
Florence + The Machine
Florence and her band haven’t had much luck in the states since their breakout hit Dog Days Are Over almost two years ago but it’s quite a different story overseas. Zooming from 104 to 1 in its second week on the U.K. charts, the success for Spectrum is starting to surge in Australia where it entered at number 30 this week on their charts. The anthem shouting Spectrum is a forceful, prideful song that radiates with happiness and will get the catchy lyric “Say my name” stuck in your head. Of course, Florence’s vocals are flawless.
Come back next weekend for a new round of future hits you’ll find here first.
