CHART SPOTLIGHT. ‘Future Trance 57’ is the latest trance installment with hot new tracks. Containing new versions of Brooklyn Bounce’s ‘The Music’ Got Me,’ covers of ‘Bring Me to Life,’ ‘Hold It Against Me’ and ‘Take Me to the Limit’ it also features the original hits from Avicii, Kate Ryan, LMFAO and Swedish House Mafia. This compilation definitely blends with a house party or an aerobic class!
CHART SPOTLIGHT. According to Music Week, there will be a tight race between Ed Sheeran and Example. The two singles are separated only by a few hundred sales on Sunday’s chart where Red Hot Chili Peppersare expected to lead the album telly. Example topped this very tally with ‘Changed the Way You Kiss Me,’ let’s see if the new single ‘Stay Awake’ will beat out the competition from Ed Sheeran’s ‘You Need Me I Don’t Need You.’ It seems as if Olly Murs and Rizzle Kicks’ ‘Heart Skips a Beat’ will lose the No.1 position.
CHART SPOTLIGHT. So, what did Alexandra Stan sound like before ‘Mr. Saxobeat’? As you probably already realized, we love to get down with Romanian dance music. Today we’ve revisited Alexandra Stan’s first hit ‘Lollipop (Param Pam Pam).’
‘Lollipop’ was released in 2009, a year ahead of ‘Mr. Saxobeat.’ She’s added both ‘Get Down (ASAP)’ and ‘One Million’ to her list of hits. The singer reigns from Constanta and studied at the ‘Traian’ Lyceum in that very city.
CHART REFLECTION. ‘Call My Name’ is the latest hit from the former Swedish Idol contestant Tove Styrke. Already a top ten seller on the Swedish iTunes tally, the track has also been picked up by the public service radio station P3.
Tove Styrke released her eponymous debut album via Sony last November. She has had a string of hits including ‘Million Pieces,’ ‘White Light Moment’ and ‘High and Low.’ The new track was recently premiered via the radio station NRJ. Expect ‘Call My Name’ to be included on an upcoming album. Scandipop thinks it’s ‘quite in the same vein as “White Light Moment,”’ while Swedish Stereo says ‘it’s much tougher than any of previous Tove’s singles.’
