astrid s such a boy
30. Astrid S – Such A Boy
Norwegian pop star Astrid S delivered one of the most witty, catchy and girl power themed pop tunes of the year. She turns things around on possibly her most hit-worthy release so far. Could have (and should have) been an international hit!

khalid american teen
20. Khalid – Location
Khalid is easily one of the most exciting break out stars of 2017 with his debut album American Teen. Best track on the album is ‘Location’, an understated little R&B gem describing a very modern romance. His vocals on this are so warm and soulful!

julia michaels issues
16. Julia Michaels – Issues
After writing hits for others for ages, Julia Michaels finally decided to go for a career as a solo artist and first single ‘Issues’ was a huge success. And rightfully so! Such a catchy little tune with endearing and honest lyrics. Her vocal delivery is perfect. I can’t help but love it when songs sound so sincere and at the same time destined to be a hit.

anne-marie ciao adios
08. Anne-Marie – Ciao Adios
After some success in 2016, 2017 turned out to be Anne-Marie’s big breakthrough year, mostly thanks to the insanely (I repeat, INSANELY) catchy ‘Ciao Adios’. That chorus is nothing short of brilliant and I will never trust anyone who manages to not move to the rhythm or can’t recall the melody after one spin. Such a tune!
