The Pop Stop: Majid Jordan, Ali Gatie, & More Deliver This Week’s Hidden Gems

Published: Saturday 17th Apr 2021 by Ryan

Readers of That Grape Juice know how passionate we are about music – whether that be past or present.

However, unlike our other segments – Retro Rewind, TGJ Replay, and From The Vault – The Pop Stop is the most in-depth look at Pop songs that may have flown under the radar over the last week that you should know, rather they be from music’s biggest stars or those on the rise.

This week, we want to highlight cuts from Majid Jordan, Ali Gatie, Mimi Webb, and Illenium.

Join us inside…

Majid Jordan – Waves Of Blue

It’s been some time since acclaimed duo Majid Jordan released their last single ‘Superstar.’ However, they are back and better than ever on their latest song ‘Waves of Blue.’ Built around mellow synths, a twinkling piano, and a retro bass grove, the song is perfect for those nights in or late night drives on the town. Equal parts, atmospheric and euphoric, ‘Waves of Blue’ stands among their best work to date.

Ali Gatie – Do You Believe

After taking the charts by storm in 2019 thanks to his worldwide hit ‘It’s You,’ the Iraqi-Canadian singer-songwriter is back with some of the best music of his career. Case in point, ‘Do You Believe’ with Ty Dolla $ign and Marshmellow. Gentle strums guide Gatie’s smoky vocals to the bombastic chorus where Marshmellow’s sharpest, cleanest EDM production to date takes over and gives Gatie’s vocals the room to soar to new heights. Ty Dolla $ign takes over on the second verse and proves that he can ride any style of production with his smooth flow. Suffice to say, it is a career highlight from all three and a must-listen.

Mimi Webb  Good Without

Rising music superstar Mimi Webb first rose to fame with her viral hit ‘Reasons’ and now she is continuing her ascent with her latest song ‘Good Without.’ Best billed as Lorde-meets-‘The Greatest Showman,’ Webb showcases her razor-sharp knack for details in the songwriting while being backed by an anthemic choir. The delicate balance between piano ballad and show tune, Webb perfectly showcases the transition from pain to healing. If ‘Reasons’ began her ascent to the stars, then ‘Good Without’ firmly plants her among the brightest of them.

Illenium – First Time

Illenium is finally back. This time, the acclaimed music producer has joined forces with Iann Dior of ‘Mood’ fame to create another massive summer anthem. Illenium blends his immaculate array of electronic sounds, with rock-like guitars and Dior’s punk-esque vocals to create an infectious song whose hook will be stuck in your head for days. A flawless blend between each artist’s style, it is far from the last time either artist creates an immediate favorite.
