Selena Gomez l UMA

Selena Gomez has this week's, Hot Shot Debut, entering the Hot 100 at #17 with Bad Liar,which was released on Friday 18/5/2017,The track samples the bassline from Talking Heads' 1977 single "Psycho Killer", It follows up It Ain't Me with Kygo, which currently sits at #11. Selena Gomez is a figure who has pitched herself right at the center of the celebrity Venn diagram: This is a woman who, in addition to her successful career as a singer, endorses everything from Coach to Coca-Cola, has acted in wholesome Disney television shows and edgy Harmony Korine movies, modeled in Louis Vuitton campaign ads and also designed clothes for Kmart. Never exactly trendy and never exactly timeless, she rides the middle. With her music, she has certainly had a few bangers: “Come & Get It” will get you through a spin class, and “Love You Like a Love Song” is now a cult karaoke classic. But if her songs have always been pretty good, they’ve never been really and truly great. The hit she has on the radio right now is a fairly anonymous EDM-lite number with Kygo called “It Ain’t Me,” a title that only begs the question: Well if this ain’t you, Selena, what and who is?

Hopefully, it’s the artist we hear on “Bad Liar,” a brand new song Gomez wrote alongside Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter. Looking at the single’s cover, shot by Petra Collins, you might develop some fairly tragic expectations concerning what you’re about to hear. In what seems like a reference to a tabloid firestorm over her recent stint in rehab, Gomez is wearing hospital bandages and gazing vulnerably at the camera. But “Bad Liar” isn’t that deep. The all-rhythm track is a simple proposition, sampling the jagged, iconic Tina Weymouth bass line from Talking Heads’ beloved “Psycho Killer” for a light, spritzy song about romantic anticipation. And it works. Really well. Even snagging an endorsement from David Byrne.

Her contemporaries Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus, who have in the past burned brighter than Gomez, are lately scattered and floundering in search of new identities, leaving behind the cartoon characters and twerk provocateurs they once were, unsure of who to be instead. Cyrus is going for a middling Shania-lite sound with her new single “Malibu,” while Perry has, unfortunately, been trying out woke disco and Migos-assisted trap. Now, Gomez’s consistent affability is beginning to feel like a solid strength. Maybe she’s had it right all the time, the proverbial tortoise to the fame hares of the world, slowly and methodically edging through the race, one foot in front of the other, until she snags a win. Which is precisely what “Bad Liar” is: A victory for an uncomplicated pop star who makes uncomplicated pop music.

Australian Singer Meg Mac, makes a move up the chart with Low Blows, which makes the Jump from #99 to #75, making a move of 24 places and makes it Our Power Hit. Meg Mac’s powerful pipes are back with ‘Low Blows’, the first single from her eponymous debut album.

The first time I heard Meg Mac perform, I remember standing there, mouth agape. The strength in her voice was palpable, but it also felt deeply intimate and raw. I’m not usually one to compare artists but she’s kind of like Australia’s version of Adele, with a blues-ier twist.

‘Low Blows’ is a stunning single. The initial demo was written in her Melbourne bedroom with just vocals and the piano, but the track was polished off in Fort Worth, Texas at a vintage-style recording studio called Niles City Sound, where she ended up recording her entire album (and the accompanying video for this track). Though the single has more of a pop feel than her earlier stuff, it’s still fairly pared back with just the piano, drums and tambourine layered throughout. “The song is about wanting to stand up for myself,” Meg Mac said. “I don’t say much, especially when I need to. It’s about being uncomfortable and all the things that go along with that - allowing people to get the better of me.” Apparently the singer tends to shy away from conflict. Sometimes that a good thing (shitty drama is draining amirite?), but sometimes you need to speak up. If someone is walking all over you, you should probably push them the fuck off. Metaphorically though because we don’t condone violence. Unless someone is actually walking on top of you, in which case you should push them off before they crack your ribs or something.
