We all know an album track or two that would’ve sounded awesome on the radio. In today’s blog, I’ve picked five songs from some of my favourite female pop artists that should’ve been given the single treatment. Let me know if you agree with my decisions in the comments below!
Cher Lloyd – Bind Your Love
Cher Lloyd’s second album, Sorry I’m Late, took so long to arrive that, when it eventually did, it flopped in the UK. It’s a shame, though, because the X Factor star’s sophomore included some of her best work today, like Bind Your Love. This mid-tempo track would’ve sounded great on the radio, and we’re already imagining the dance routine that would’ve accompanied the video.
Cheryl – It’s About Time
Cheryl’s fourth album was preceded by singles Crazy Stupid Love and I Don’t Care, and was finished off with the third single, and the title track, Only Human. The LP was jam-packed with pop tunes, and It’s About Time is one of her best. This song would’ve been perfect for summer festivals and shows, and we’re sure it would’ve helped the singer secure her sixth number one single (following Fight for this Love, Promise This, Call My Name, Crazy Stupid Love and I Don’t Care).
Camila Cabello – Into It
Camila might only have been released a month ago, so there’s still a chance that this one could happen. We’ve already had two amazing singles from the ex-Fifth Harmony singer’s debut, and we’re hoping that ‘Into It’ will be released as the third. This track is fun, fresh, showcases Camila’s incredible vocals and is perfect for commercial radio.
Carly Rae Jepsen – E·MO·TION
This list could’ve been really easy to write if we only took tracks from Carly Rae’s second album, but we had to reign ourselves in and give other pop girls a chance. E·MO·TION, the title track to Carly’s LP, is one of the most vibrant and energetic songs on the album, and a perfect song for radio. Here’s hoping 2018 is the year when Carly releases some more awesome music.
Ariana Grande – Greedy
The masterpiece that was Dangerous Woman included a whole host of single-worthy tracks, but we think Greedy takes the spot as the most deserving single. This track is a bop, and designed to make you move when it comes on in the club. And we’re imagining a Katy Perry California Gurls-inspired music video that saw Ariana play with food. Can someone make that happen, please!?
