Top 5 Singles for the Week of January 19, 2017:

The second single from JT’s upcoming album, Man of the Woods is a simple but brilliant R&B-meets-pop track that gives more insight in to what we can expect from the album.
2. “The Good Side” – Troye Sivan
A sweet, slow love song that will pull on your heartstrings. Sivan’s honest vocal takes this track to the next level.
3. “Paradise” – George Ezra
An upbeat indie jam that will be sure to put you in a good mood. A perfect way to start the day if you ask us.
4. “Ignore Me” – Betty Who
Dreamy pop with a danceable beat is a Betty Who classic. This track has all of that plus a great story which has us wondering if we will be hearing more from her soon!
5. “Handyman” – AWOLNATION
The fourth installment of their upcoming release, Here Come the Runts is a relaxed, singer-songwriter track that still manages to pick up with hard-hitting lyrics and a melody that will make this one of their most notable tracks.
