Gone – Afrojack, Ty Dolla $ign – Ty is the king of rap pop, his instincts are all to the hook, the the sweet place. Afrojack is a terrific EDM trance type DJ with tons of melody in his pocker and this is a fair enough pop song, whch will be better if it hits big – B

Private Show – Britney Spears – Classic Britney, all sugar and spice with a beat they must have bought for a million. A substantial return to form after that lousy G- Easy track – B+

Cookin’ – Fat Joe, Remy Martin,  French Montana – welcome to 1996, and enjoy watching hearing Fat Joe, just tht voice, sounding timeless, plus who is behind that equal parts annoying and addictive hook? RySoValid, since you asked – B+

I See You – Idina Menzel – She has a great voice, but she needs good material and this completely stinks – C

Carry On – Norah Jones – To quote our Mayor, this is a teachable moment. It doesn’t matter how hot you are, when you have stale, brain numbing, boring songs, you’re a dog – D+

That Love – Shaggy – Very typical Shaggy half and half, dance reggae beat sun swept song, very catchy stuff and just what you expect – B

Cool Go – Tove Lo – Love that “let’s not put a label on it…” hook, but the rest of the song can’t pay off – B-

Comeback Kid – The Band Perry – Catchy country song by a catchy country band, simple but it says it – B

Put Your Hands Up – The Struts – If The 1975 were a classic rock band, they would be the Struts – B
