My favourite track on Christina Aguilera's latest album "Lotus" is the fantastic dance track "Let There Be Love". Christina uploaded a video for the song on YouTube yesterday, and it has an important message. "Let There Be Love" is available on iTunes and Spotify. It deserves to be a hit!

The Saturdays - Disco Love

I'm a huge fan of UK girl group The Saturdays, but I was a little disappointed by their previous single "Gentlemen", it just wasn't my style. However, I'm loving their brand new single "Disco Love", an amazing dance-pop explosion!

The video premiered yesterday and the single is up for pre-order on iTunes. There is also a special EP featuring remixes and two B-sides, one of them a cover of Donna Summer's "On The Radio". Enjoy!

Video: Lady Gaga - Applause

No one has been able to avoid Lady Gaga's amazing new monster single "Applause", and today, the video premiered on YouTube. I'm so glad that Gaga keeps doing electronic dance-pop and I love the lyrics where she shows critics that no one has the right to decide for others what "good" or "bad" art is. There is no right or wrong when it comes to music, just different opinions.

"Applause" is out now on iTunes och Spotify.

Mary N'diaye - Big Dreamer

Pop singer Mary N'diaye competed in Melodifestivalen 2013, the Swedish pre-selection to the Eurovision Song Contest, with the song "Gosa". She recently released a new single called "För Att Jag Kan" but I prefer her debut single "Big Dreamer" from 2012. The dance sound is amazing!

"Big Dreamer" is available on iTunes and Spotify.
