1. Adele – Hello
It was 3 year after we last heard from her with James Bond theme Skyfall, but what a smashing come back Adele has made with her brand new single Hello. On the first day it came out, the video from Hello already had 25 million views and in the meantime it has been watched more than 100 million times. Adele’s third album, 25, will be released on 20 November 2015 and on 21 November she will perform in Saturday night live. Besides that there will be one hour special on BBC TV with Adele, where she will be interviewed by Graham Norton. I can’t wait until 25 comes out and I’m sure I’m not the only one!
2. Naughty boy feat. Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin – Runnin’ (Lose It All)
What a strong song is Runnin’ (Lose It All) from Naughty Boy feat. Beyoncé. The build up of the song is excellent and Queen Bey sounds once again very powerful, almost in a classical/opera-like way. The more I hear it the better it gets.
3. Rudimental feat. Ed Sheeran – Lay it all on me
It seems that this collaboration with Rudimental is the last we will hear from Ed Sheeran before he will take a longer break. Ed recently received an honorary doctorate from the University Campus Suffolk (UCS) in Ipswich for his “Outstanding contribution to music” and he was co-host of the MTV EMA’s in Milan. In this song together with Rudimental, Ed will leave us for a while, with “Lay it all on me”, being a great song to enjoy.
4. Drake – Hotline Bling
When I first heard Hotline Bling from Drake, I immediately noticed the sample of Timmy Thomas “Why can’t we live together”. Just a nice song sit/lie down, listen and relax.
5. Justin Bieber – Sorry
I’m not a Justin Bieber fan and I’m certainly not his target audience, but I must admit that his last hit “What do you mean” and this new song Sorry are good and catchy songs! It sounds like Justin is a little more grown up.
