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, David Guetta & Becky Hill, Mabel, and Jonas Brothers.
Join us inside…
Majid Jordan – Been Through That
Returning with their second single of the year, Majid Jordan shared the breezy ‘Been Through That.’ This synth-heavy song is rooted in a clap beat – that could have been pulled directly from Studio 54 – to create a disco dancefloor banger. From the mellow groove, to the heavenly vocals, Majid Jordan once again delivers another tune that is as classic as the decade that inspired it.
Becky Hill & David Guetta – Remember
Since the release of her most recent singles –‘Better Off Without You’ and ‘Last Time’ – Becky Hill has been building up to something big and by teaming up with EDM superstar David Guetta she has achieved a triumphant trifecta of moving on club bops. A true dance-through-the-tears house-pop gem, ‘Remember’ is one of Becky Hill’s brightest shining achievements to date, and deservedly so.
Mabel – Let Them Know
Rising music superstar Mabel has officially made her return this year with the uptempo ‘Let Them Know.’ The song is a throwback to the early 00’s with its disco-meets-electro-pop sounds. The gritty, anthemic tune beams with confidence and serves as a prime example of her talents, letting them know that she is here to stay.
Jonas Brothers – Remember This
After releasing one of the best songs of the year with the Marshmello-assisted ‘Leave Before You Love Me,’ the Jonas Brothers are continuing their hot streak with their newest song ‘Remember This.’ Melding sounds of both pop and rock, the song is nostalgic of their early work; however, this time around it is clear that they have found their sound with the rollicking drums and the glistening synths. The song is set to appear as part of the 2021 Summer Olympics, but it’s clear the Jonas Brothers are taking home the gold with ‘Remember This.’
