Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé – Perfect  

Ed Sheeran is a British singer and songwriter, best recognised for his pop music.  He wishes for “Perfect” to become one of his defining tracks.  

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress. She rose to fame as the lead singer of the girl-group Destiny’s Child, and is best known for her own songs, “Crazy in Love” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)”. 

“Perfect” already hit No.1 in the UK charts when it was initially released, but has exceptionally grown when combined with Beyoncé. Now aflawless as the title suggests, the song is aiming to be No.1 next week in the Billboard Hot 100 

   

 

Demons of Ruby Mae – Someday 

Demons of Ruby Mae was formed in 2013, consisting of the British duo Jonny Gavin and Adam Rowley. Their brand of alternative rock differs from the “Boy Band” mentality that’s captured the UK in recent years, with rich and distinct soundscapes and gliding vocals. The band has a large fanbase, something evident in their 3 million Spotify plays. 

‘Someday’ is starts off very subtle, steadily building towards the impressive climax. As such, what first feels like a bleak and mournful song soon becomes highly expressive and reminiscent. This song marks a stage in the band's career that many thought they’d never reach.  

 

Martin Garrix and David Guetta – So Far Away 

Martin Garrix is a Dutch DJ, record producer and musician. One of the top DJ’s in the world, he’s best known for songs such as 2013’s “Animals”, “Don’t Look Down” and “In the Name of Love”.   

David Guetta is a French DJ, songwriter, record producer and remixer, selling over nine million albums and 30 million singles worldwide. His best-known songs include “When Love Takes Over”, “Titanium”, “Without You” and “Where Them Girls At”.  

With powerful lyrics from vocalists Romy Dya and Jamie Scott, “So Far Away” is a long-awaited collaboration from the two DJ’s, resulting in this beautiful electric-pop ballad. This song is perfect to be dedicated to that special someone in your life, representing a romantic fantasy come to life.  

 

Aden X Olson – Cloud 9  

After a chance encounter this summer lead them together, Aden X Olson is a newly formed duo consisting of artists Aden Jaron & Björn Olson, with “Cloud 9” as their debut single.  

While “Cloud 9” may be simplistic in the eyes of some, it does not contain the fact that this song is thoroughly engrossing for those electronic fans. With dynamic melodies and blurred vocals, “Cloud 9” leaves its listeners craving more from the two artists.
