The Pop Stop: Calum Scott, Luke Combs, & More Deliver This Week’s Hidden Gems

Published: Friday 17th Jun 2022 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 Calum Scott, Luke Combs, New Hope Club, and Julius Rodriguez.

Join us inside…

Calum Scott – Boys In The Street

Serving as the latest single from his freshly-released album ‘Bridges,’ is the song ‘Boys In The Street.’ Originally sung by Greg Holden, Scott delivers a poignant message about homophobia and family relations. Set to the tune of a delicate piano, Scott delivers the vocal performance of his career. Easily the best song on the album, and one of the best of his career, Scott delivers a once in a lifetime tune with ‘Boys In The Street.’


Luke Combs – The Kind Of Love We Make

Country music superstar Luke Combs is gearing up to release his new album ‘Growin’ Up’ on June 24 and he has now shared the latest taste of music from the project. Entitled ‘The Kind Of Love We Make,’ the song showcases a new side to the singer. Usually known for rowdy beer-driven anthems, Combs instead opts for a more soulful sound with its swaying rhythm and romantic atmosphere. Easily the best song on the project thus far, ‘The Kind Of Love We Make’ is not only a new side to Combs, but a fresh start on what is guaranteed to be a long career.


New Hope Club – Getting Better

New Hope Club has officially started a new era. Case in point, they have just shared their most recent single, ‘Getting Better.’ Harking back to the days of disco with shimmering guitars, bouncing bass lines, and handclaps, the boys deliver an exuberant retro-tinged disco-pop song, one that showcases their strengths as the true pop stars they are.


Julius Rodriguez – Where Grace Abounds

Having just released his debut album – ‘Let Sound Tell All’ – Jazz pianist Julius Rodriguez is riding high on a wave of success and it’s easy to see why. Take the song ‘Where Grace Abounds’ for example. Not only is the song different stylistically than what is on the rest of the album, but it also delivers a moody spin on trumpet-led R&B. Easily the best song on the project, ‘Where Grace Abounds’ is a true triumph for Jazz music as a whole.
