Madonna, Kerli, Garbage + More: 5 Must-Hear Pop Songs Of The Week
It’s Tuesday! Time for another round of “5 Must-Hear Pop Songs of the Week”! This week’s wrap-up includes offerings from an Estonian goth-pop princess, a Danity Kane solo star and the one and only: Madonna. If I had my way, every song on this Top 5 would be from her new album, MDNA (which came out yesterday — check out our track-by-track review), but I’m retraining myself. After all, there’s still plenty of solid tunes from amazing artists NOT named Madonna out this week, too!
2.) Kerli, “Zero Gravity”
It is a well-known fact that Estonia’s greatest exports are machinery, textiles and bubbly Goth-pop chanteuses named Kerli. The blonde Björk-gone-supa kawaii, responsible for penning Demi Lovato’s devastating “Skyscraper,” returns to the spotlight in 2012 with her brand-new single “Zero Gravity,” the lead of her follow-up to 2008’s Love Is Dead.
“Feels like coming home after traveling a million miles,” Kerli croons across her new single’s thundering electronic beat, vaguely recalling Alexandra Burke’s equally mile-a-minute club-pop track, “Elephant.” Suddenly the beat drops completely: “Oh, I’m in zero gravity!” she cries, as a storming beat suddenly comes blaring into the speakers. If you think the song’s a trip, you should check the spacey-geisha-’90s club kid-butterfly inspired video. (Nope, I have no idea what just happened either.)
