Okay, a confession: These might not be the newest hot songs from the U.S. Because I spend much of my time in Asia, sometimes the absolute newest stuff takes a bit to reach me. But these still are fresh, and they’re still really good. Unless you’re reading Rolling Stone every week, this list probably has something new for you.
Arizona Zervas’ Roxanne and Lizzo’s Good as Hell seem to especially stick in my brain.
Get a downloadable copy of these songs (and others!) for your phone or computer by signing up for my monthly e-mail updates. I include a download link with the copy of this post that goes out by email.
You also might want to check out my Culture page, where I recommend hot K-Pop and Thai songs.
These songs aren’t quite as sweet as the above, but I still listen to them a lot.
