7 Underrated Pop Songs You Need To Listen To Right Now
When it comes to the realm of pop music, it’s either hit or miss…depending on who you ask. While Top 40 may play the hottest hits at the moment, they tend to miss some really incredible gems. To ensure you’re not missing out, we’ve complied 7 of the best underrated pop songs of the past six years that you need to hear right this moment!
Charli XCX – “Nuclear Seasons”
While Miss. XCX has gotten her fair share of fame with her breakout collab, “Fancy,” with Iggy Azalea in 2014, along with “Boom Clap” and “After The Afterparty,” the singer’s first album, True Romance, is chock full of electro-pop jams!
Bridgit Mendler – “Atlantis” feat. Kaiydo
Bridgit Mendler has made an incredible mark in the indie world with her new material but “Atlantis” never made it to pop radio and fans are definitely missing out! Following the success of her 2012 musical debut with “Ready Or Not,” Mendler’s 2016 EP, Nemesis displays maturity and pop/R&B gems for days!
Flor – “Heart”
Flor have made a slow but steady rise but we still feel like the rest of the world hasn’t caught on yet. If you’re into all things dreamy and indie-pop, give their debut album, come out. you’re hiding, a listen!
The Knocks feat. Carly Rae Jepsen – “Love Me Like That”
Anything with Carly Rae should be a hit, but unfortunately, this one fell short. Possibly one of her best collaborations to date, “Love Me Like That,” would have fit perfectly on 2015’s E*MO*TION!
Dua Lipa – “Hotter Than Hell”
Dua Lipa is finally starting to make some waves in the US with “New Rules” but we really should have caught on sooner. “Hotter Than Hell” lives up to its title without a doubt!
Phoebe Ryan – “Dead”
Phoebe Ryan is probably pop’s most underrated star out there yet Top 40 can’t catch on! “Dead” is a gorgeous track about not feeling worthy of all of your accomplishments while the good things are right in front of you. Something we all can relate to, for sure!
The Chainsmokers feat. XYLØ – “Setting Fires”
While The Chainsmokers have been on fire over the past year with hits like “Closer,” “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Something Just Like This,” sleeper track “Setting Fires” from 2016’s Collage EP with brother-sister duo XYLØ is by far one of their best!
