Dua Lipa - Don’t Start Now She didn’t resurrect disco - because it never died - but if this is the way pop is heading next decade, then sign me up.
Lizzo - Good As Hell Lizzo’s old songs are huge this year - 3 years in the making, but FINALLY a Top 10 UK hit. Pure joy.
Zara Larsson - All The Time How Ruin My Life was a hit, and this wasn’t, is beyond me - killer hook and that electro touch we like.
Mark Ronson/Miley Cyrus - Nothing Breaks Like A Heart End of 2018, but just a glorious widescreen banger.
Jonas Brothers - Sucker Whenever I hear Nick Jonas sing, I get VERY excited.
Ariana Grande - Bad Idea Should have been a single, but what do I know - my fave from this year’s ‘thank u, next’.
Billie Eilish - Bad Guy Billie’s EMO has been growing on me as the year has progressed - and she shares a name with my dog, so extra points there.
Charli XCX & Troye Sivan - 1999 Don’t do the maths, because Troye in particular should have very limited memory of 1999.
Taylor Swift - You Need To Come Down Anti-trolling anthem, with the gayest video of the year
Mabel - Don’t Call Me Up Finally Neneh’s daughter broke the Top 10 this year. So sassy, just like her mama.
