Welcome to The Fodder Blog’s new weekly segment ‘Weekly Top 10’, where our lovely team of writers share their top song picks for that week. If you’re in need of brand-new, spirited additions to your tumbleweed-ridden playlists, you’re in the right place! 

Padmo Widyaseno shares his personal favourites from this week’s releases.

Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion — ‘Sweetest Pie’

Released on: March 11

Few women have dominated the charts as much as Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion have in recent years. Their newest single ‘Sweetest Pie’ is a brilliant showcase of why they’re two of the biggest female artists in the music industry right now. Sonically it’s more of a Lipa song, but Megan’s incredible rapping versatility fits her perfectly into the track. The song’s overall smoothness and catchiness will undoubtedly make it stick in your head. 

Takeoff, Rich The Kid‘Crypto’

Released on: March 11

The cryptocurrency craze has reached new heights in recent months since the popularisation of Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs). And what better way to commemorate this new phenomenon with a song from Migos’ very own Takeoff, with a guest verse from Rich The Kid. The two rappers mainly talk about their wealth (no surprise) with a brief mention of their cryptocurrency exploits. The track works both as a bit of harmless fun whilst also reflecting on recent trends.

Alison Wonderland‘New Day’

Released on: March 10

From the electronic scene, we’ve got an outstanding new release from Aussie artist Alison Wonderland. ‘New Day’, a track from Wonderland’s recent EP of the same name, mesmerises with its eclectic song production and gratifying beat drop. Highly recommended for those who enjoy future bass and similar genres. 

The Chainsmokers — ‘iPad’

Released on: March 11

The electronic duo’s new single sounds rather different from their previous work. Diverting from their typically vibrant and catchy dance-pop, ‘iPad’ is sweeter and subtler, almost like a Porter Robinson song. It’s pleasing to see the duo evolving into more captivating artists, after years of conforming to the trends.

Aitch, Ashanti — ‘Baby’

Released on: March 11

Aitch is proving himself to be one of the most popular and skilled UK rappers these days. The sample used in this track originates from Ashanti, a famed R&B singer from the 2000s. It accentuates the smoothness of the song, which is particularly useful with lyrics targeted towards his significant other. His flow here is incredible and, as per usual, there’s plenty of clever bars here and there. With ‘Baby’, Aitch proves he’s more than a one-hit wonder. 

Benny The Butcher (feat. Boldy James) — ‘Weekends In The Perry’s’

Released on: March 12

It was so hard to choose just one Benny the Butcher song, but here is a standout—a collaboration with labelmate Boldy James. Benny and Boldy are both naturals in their respective verses, accompanied by a smooth 70s soul sample, which adds to the song’s mellow and relaxing vibe. It’s hard not to get lost in this track. 

Rex Orange County (feat. Tyler The Creator) — ‘OPEN THE WINDOW’

Released on: March 10

When Rex and Tyler collaborate on a song, you know it’s gonna slap—a tried and tested formula that delivers once again. As a preceding single on County’s latest album, the track displays both artists’ strengths. Tyler’s rapping is solid as ever, and County brings his signature sound to create an undeniably enjoyable track.

Faver — ‘Can I sleep next to you’

Released on: March 15

The South Korean artist, typically showcasing an eclectic and off-kilter production style, opts for a more mellow and acoustic sound on this latest single. ‘Can i sleep next to you’ is a sweet, almost saccharine love song sung in both English and Korean. It’s one of those songs that sets off that fuzzy feeling inside.

Weezer — ‘A Little Bit Of Love’

Released on: March 16

It’s hard not to love Weezer—a simple and unassuming band, yet undeniably catchy at the same time. ‘A Little Bit Of Love’ is their latest single, which conveys a simple message: love one another! It may not be the most sophisticated of songs, but sometimes all we really need is a positive and upbeat mood booster. 

MUNA — ‘Anything But Me’

Released on: March 16

‘Anything But Me’ served as a personal introduction to MUNA. The track caught me with its catchiness and energy right from the first listen. An example of both sophisticated and polished pop music, its authentic sound is balanced with an earworm catchiness. Most definitely one of the highlights from this week!
