PopCrush Mini-Mix 17: Featuring Miley Cyrus, Lorde + More [LISTEN]by Maggie Malach | PopCrush
This week’s PopCrush Mini-Mix kicks off with a ‘Boom!’ — literally!
The latest installment is helmed by Charli XCX‘s bombastic ‘Boom Clap.’ The song, off of ‘The Fault in Our Stars‘ soundtrack, has an infectious beat and an even catchier chorus. It’s the perfect track to launch your weekend (and this week’s Mini-Mix!).
The upbeat track transitions into another song that celebrates the feeling of falling head-over-heels: Justin Timberlake‘s ‘Not a Bad Thing.’ The song showcases Justin’s smooth vocals, but also provides a poppy beat that has us totally jamming.
Lorde‘s ‘Tennis Court’ slows things down a bit. The rhythmic track is every bit as catchy as her breakout hit, ‘Royals,’ and is the perfect way to switch up the mix before it transitions into a pop classic: Miley Cyrus‘ ‘Party in the U.S.A.’
Miley’s hit is from a pre-‘Bangerz’ era, but there’s no denying that it’s still one of her best songs. With July in full swing, there’s no better track for celebrating the warm weather.
This week’s Mini-Mix closes out with an uptempo version of Sam Smith‘s ‘Stay With Me.’ The singer’s breakout hit pumps us up every time we hear it. What’s not to love? His vocals are powerful, and the message is simple, but poignant.
