Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry, and Phoenix In Singles This Week

“First Time” by Kygo, Ellie Goulding

Although a solid plagiarism case for The Chainsmokers, “First Time” is undeniably a catchy tune that will be in around the radios for at least a while. Kygo, just out from a hit with Selena Gomez (“It Aint Me”) teams up with British pop star Ellie Goulding to produce a song about a young couple facing the hardships of love. Bet you haven’t heard that one before.

“Bon Appétit” by Katy Perry feat. Migos

“Bon Appétit” raises up numerous questions marks from its audience. What is going on with Katy Perry? Who let her make this song? What does this song even mean? What has she done to her hair? A cringe-worthy, factory-produced single, its only merit is Migos’ appearance.

“J-Boy” by Phoenix

Phoenix’s new song makes you feel like you’re navigating space in an f80s video game, or something along those lines. A cheesy romantic song in usual late-Phoenix fashion, it does not fall short of showcasing some lyrical masterpieces, such as: “Something ’bout how hard you learned / Kamikaze in a hopeless world / Do you remember the last time you laughed/And I laughed and you left and I left?”
