The Pop Stop: Carrie Underwood, Tove Lo, & More Deliver This Week’s Hidden Gems

Published: Friday 11th Aug 2023 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 Carrie Underwood, Tove Lo, James Bay, and Bonnie McKee .

Join us inside…

Carrie Underwood – Give Her That

Country queen Carrie Underwood is back with her latest single, ‘Give Her That.’ Released as part of the upcoming deluxe edition of her ‘Denim and Rhinestones’ album – due out September 22 – the song is co-written by Underwood and is a reflective ballad about young love. Set to the tune of gentle guitars, pedal steel, and a gentle backbeat, Underwood once again delivers a perfect pop-country song.


Tove Lo – Elevator Eyes

Tove Lo continues to release new music. This time around, she released the song ‘Elevator Eyes’ as part of her ‘Dirt Femme’ deluxe album. Co-written with Joel Little, the song is a hypnotic, synth-driven tune that details a short-term hookup while on vacation. Never one to hold back, Tove Lo once again expands the boundaries of pop music with ‘Elevator Eyes.’


James Bay – Goodbye Never Felt So Bad

Rockstar James Bay has shred his new song, ‘Goodbye Never Felt So Bad.’ A soft-rock tune complete with warm guitars and and pulsating drums, he reflects on the heartbreaking reality of the end of a relationship. With its classic sound, ‘Goodbye Never Felt So Bad’ is as classic as the era it draws inspiration from.


Bonnie McKee – Hot City

While many associate Bonnie McKee with the hits she wrote for Katy Perry, she is a pop star in her own right. Case in point, the electric energy of the synth-heavy ‘Hot City.’ Featuring tons of notable phrases and an insatiable chorus, ‘Hot City’ is Bonnie McKee becoming the pop star she was destined to be.
