This has been a unique week as all of the Top 3 belongs to new entries. However, they come from the artists that we love dearly. ‘Lights In The Shadows’ is the third single this year that comes from a badass duo JØAN and even though previous songs managed to rock the boat on our chart, this one hit the sweet spot and today landed at the top spot.
JØAN is a mysterious duo of two American singers who shine a light on empowering women. Every song has a powerful message and after everything we have experienced in 2020, we need to find the light in the shadows!
GEORGE HOLLIDAY & ISAAC TYLER » Young & Free
George Holliday is a super talented and extremely creative producer and songwriter who is recording music in his bus. This year he worked on countless songs and collaborated with many artists. ‘Young & Free’ is new at number two and showcases amazing vocals by Isaac Tyler. Their previous collaboration ‘All Drained Out’ peaked at number two as is one of the best songs of 2020.
KALYJA RAIN » A’19
Our friend and wonderful spirit Kalyja Rain is a force to be reckoned with. During our IGTV live talking about the latest single ‘A’19’ she admitted that it is the first song from her upcoming EP that dives deep into the subject of the cracking and ending relationship. ‘A’19’ is a code name for Arizona and the year 2019 and shows a different sound that was more influenced by Fleetwood Mac and you can even hear references to ‘Time After Time’.
FINLAY » Self & Others
Fin Henderson better known as Finlay is one of the most productive artists this year. I think it would be fair to say that ‘Self & Others’ is his most optimistic track from the EP that is about to be released. 2020 will be remembered as a year having apocalyptic twist and Finlay’s voice and music is definitely the right soundtrack.
MACAJEY » Walkin’
Macajey is an American singer who is currently living in Estonia. We featured ‘Walkin’ as the track of the day when it was released and finally the song enters our weekly chart. We could count the artists from Estonia who managed to enter our chart and we hope that this is just the first of many songs from talented Macajey to reach the chart.
MEGAN LARA MAE » Alright
Singer-songwriter Megan Lara Mae is back with a killer of a tune. We got to admit that with each new release Megan is getting better and better. We believe that ‘Alright’ is her best single to date and we know that today that song just starts its journey on the chart. The song has such a sick beat that it does make you smile and say that fuck yes! everything will be alright!
CHAVIS CHANCE » Call Me
Chavis Chance is singer-songwriter who stole our heart with ‘Call Me’. We were thrilled that we had a chance talk to him about the song and his journey. You can find a more in-depth conversation with Chavis here.
