New Hits Friday: 19th April 2019

Two new hits in the chart today.

BTS and Halsey – Boy With Luv

It’s a solid pop track, but there’s not enough of a hook for me.

The video is all colourful candy dreamscapes and lots of dancing. I do like it, but I’m a bit surprised that it’s had 167 million views (as of 19th April 2019) and broken all the YouTube records. I guess BTS must have a lot of fans.

Avicii and Aloe Blacc – SOS

Lovely and in some ways haunting to hear a ‘new’ posthumous track from Avicii. There’s a feel of the bluegrass for which his previous Aloe Blacc collaborations were known, and also a hint of Japanese music in there. Nice track.

There’s no official video, but there has been a ‘fan memories’ video made with quotations from fans on the screen.

More new hits next week.
