Friday’s Five Tunes with CILIA


Always wondered what pop stars themselves listen to whenever they are not on stage or writing new music? It’s time to find out! Every week, A Bit of Pop Music will bring you Friday’s Five Tunes, a selection of five favourite songs by a current pop artist. This week we will learn all about CILIA’s favourite pop tunes!

CILIA is one of many exciting fresh pop stars hailing from Sweden. Back in 2016 she impressed us all with the deliciously catchy pop tune ‘Hardcore Heartbreak’. The pop blogs online, including Popjustice, were praising the release and they all agreed on her potential on becoming the next big thing. CILIA took her time to come up with a proper follow-up, but she has got a new single out today! It’s called ‘Myself & I’ and it is a stunning midtempo pop belter! There simply is no arguing with that big chorus! Earlier this week, A Bit of Pop Music included CILIA in the list of Most Promising New Artists for 2018. Now she will tell us all about her own pop favourites!

BØRNS – Electric Love
“I recently discovered this song after my sister suggested it to me and now I just can’t get enough! It’s such a timeless hit and just makes me want to run outside and get kissed in the rain!”

Jackson Breit – 679 & No Diggity
“This is basically the only song I am going to listen to this summer. It is the best pre-party song ever!”

Dagny – Love You Like That
“Can things even go wrong when Dagny is singing something? I Guess not… This is the perfect pop song and the perfect love song all at the same time!”

LÉON – I Believe in Us
“Léons voice is seriously the most perfect thing ever and so are her songs. Her tracks are so emotional that, even if I’m perfectly happy, I can burst into tears just by listening to her.”

Foreigner – I Wanna Know What Love Is
“I know, this choice is so cheesy, but there should be no doubt that this is the best love song ever. We all know it, but at least I admit it, haha!”

Don’t we just love it when talent recognizes talent!? Cilia did pick Dagny, who was part of our Most Promising Artists for 2018 too and she shares our passion for Swedish LÉON! But now it is time to listen to what CILIA herself has to offer! Check out her latest ‘Myself & I’ and if you haven’t heard ‘Hardcore Heartbreak’ before, this is your chance!
