Most Listened To is a little series we dip into every now and then to share some of the tracks that I’m loving at the minute. I log into Obscurify to analyse my Spotify data and pick out the top 10 most listened to tracks of the last six weeks, though I do kind of cheat and set a rule so that there can only be one song per artist represented.
Since my last ‘Most Listened To’ post I’ve been settling into a new job, running a hell of a lot for Movember and trying to settle back into a ‘normal’ life after ten months of alternating between working for myself and travelling, it’s been a year.
1) Baby – Clean Bandit + Marina + Luis Fonsi
It’s no secret that I am a HUGE Marina Diamandis fan, I truly believe she’s one of the most talented lyricists of our time and brings such a unique viewpoint to pop that others simply don’t have.
As a long time Marina stan, would I have ever seen a collaboration with Clean Bandit coming? Of course, they dropped a track at Glasto last year and Marina’s boyfriend is bloody in the band. Would I have expected a Luis Fonsi collab?
But I fucking love it. This is a sad bop, like ‘Happier’ below. It’s a certified tune, Marina’s angelic voice ties with Fonsi’s really well and they make this track endlessly fun, the choruses are frequent but not repetitive, the message is clear and the beats are mint. BANGER.
