Mya, Kylie Minogue, Grace Jones + More: 5 Must-Hear Pop Songs Of The Week

It’s Tuesday! Time for another round of “5 Must-Hear Pop Songs of the Week!”

This week’s roundup features a special Record Store Day side dish from a U.K. pop princess, a Danish anti-drug club anthem, and some slinky electro-R&B from a card-carrying member of the Moulin Rouge.

1.) Kylie Minogue, “Golden Boy”

After blessing our ears with enough glitter and diamond-encrusted dance-floor gems to last us for months with the recently released Kiss Me Once, pop icon Kylie Minogue is already giving us more, more, more: To celebrate Record Store Day, the disco diva unveiled a special 7″ across the pond, which includes the LP bonus track, “Golden Boy.”

Written with Mereki and Jerry James and co-produced by Sky Ferreira hitmakers Ariel Rechtshaid and Justin Raisen, the song sees Kylie swooning hard. It’s the hardest she’s swooned for a boy since, well, Aphrodite’s “Cupid Boy.”

“Now I’m banging on your door just like four up on the floor/ This is happening too soon/ Why are we battling the moon,” Kylie coos across hazy, ’80s textures and kicky, HAIM-like drums. It’s both an appropriately cool-sounding tune for the vinyl-loving hipsters searching hungrily through the crates and a shimmering classic for the Kylie camp. Shine on and on and on!
