CHUNKY
Bruno Mars I WMA

""Chunky" is a song recorded by American singer and songwriter Bruno Mars, taken from his third studio album, 24K Magic (2016). It was co-written by Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence, Christopher Brody Brown and James Fauntleroy. Its production was handled by the former three under their alias, Shampoo Press & Curl. On November 27, 2017, Chunky was released as the album's fourth single in Australia. Chunky makes it's move, In its second week on the chart, moving Up from #67 to #27, making a move of 40 places, which makes it, This Week's Power Hit.
No pop historian in the business right now is as successful at reinventing top 40's past as Bruno Mars.  Since his emergence, the singer-songwriter has displayed the ability to capture the essence of what made so many of the greats' music timeless, making him one of the most consistently popular artists of his era.

That trend should only continue with Bruno Mars' latest album, 24K Magic, released Friday (Nov. 18), which pays homage to any number of pop performers from his canon, in winking tributes that still keep one foot (or at least a couple of toes) in the present.

If you're talking a slow-and-easy strut based on sweet synths and gently popping bass, you gotta invoke the type's all-time gold standard: Cameo's 1986 pop-funk classic "Candy," which the second track on Bruno's new LP echoes down to the letter structure of its one-word title. Also bubbling under the chorus to this one: a little bit of "Outstanding," the 1983 Billboard R&B No. 1 hit by Mars' old friends The Gap Band.

TAKE COVER
Jordie Ireland I UMA

"Take Cover" is a song recorded by Australian Producer Jordie Ireland. The song was written by Matthew Jordan, Jordie Ireland, Sophie Curtis. It was released to Australian radio on November 25, 2017, by Universal Music.  
Take Cover, is This week's
Hot Debut, entering the Hot 100 at #35.

I listened to this Jordie Ireland song this morning thinking that was the name of a new European singer some Scandinavian label's trying to break but it turns out it's a 20-year-old Sydney producer on his debut single. Take Cover is a huge EDM moment with a fierce vocal by a Sydney-based singer he co-wrote the song with Matthew Jordan & Sophie Curtis.

In terms of electronic acts to watch in 2018, 20-year-old producer Jordie Ireland has already staked his claim with his debut single ‘Take Cover’.

The Sydney producer is just dipping his toe in the water, but his first track is a seriously slick EDM banger anchored around a gorgeous topline, and the beautifully-shot video set around Sydney is just the cherry on top.

An impressive start from the young DJ/producer, who’s recently signed to Casablanca/Universal, and we’ll be keeping an eye firmly on whatever comes next.
