Three new hits in the chart today.
AJ Tracey – Psych Out
Generic and dull track. And if I never have to hear the word ‘Gucci’ in a chart hit again, it will be too soon. Do Gucci actually pay for all these mentions?
The video has quite a pretty mansion in the opening sequence, but soon degenerates into a riot of twerking strippers. NSFW and not recommended, unless you like that kind of thing.
Mabel – Don’t Call Me Up
I don’t find there’s anything particularly new about the melody. There’s a plinky piano bit on the bridge I quite like, but otherwise it’s all a bit samey.
There’s some nice colourful outfits and pop dance moves in the video though.
Ariana Grande – 7 Rings
It’s based around a slightly dodgy interpolation of My Favourite Things from The Sound Of Music. The track’s got a great atmosphere, though.
The video is all very pink and dreamlike.
