Friday Playlist: Volume 11 - Pop Explosion

Friday Playlist: Volume 11 - Pop Explosion

It feels like each week, there is a specific genre that chimes in with a ton of music.  One week it's Indie Rock, the next it's Rap or Country, but this week it looks like Pop is bringing the hammer down.  It only makes sense to kick off the playlist with a song called "Hello Friday" from Flo Rida featuring Jason Derulo.

Some other pretty big pop stars are checking in with some new singles of their own.  Not only pop stars, but all the lady pop stars are coming out of the woodwork this week.  Birdy (with a Don Diablo Remix), Carly Rae Jepsen (featured on a song by The Knocks), Fifth Harmony (with some help from Ty Dolla $ign), & Hailee Steinfeld (featuring DNCE) all dropped in with some new tunes.

To round out the playlist, we got some eclectic pop songs to balance things out.  These tunes run the gamut of Pop with Electro-Pop (Jane XO), Indie Pop (Chelsea Lankes), Pop Rock (The 1975), Electro-House (Tritonal), & Dream Pop (Kaptan).

This playlist is really light and bouncy and will get the dancing juices flowing.  Hello Friday is right.
