Baltimore could use a feel-good story, and this danceable earworm by East Side newbie Tate Kobang could be it. Using the beat from a forgotten 2000 local hit of the same name by Tim Trees, the sparse track sounds like a 2015 version of Clipse’s ­“Grindin’,” and has been getting hometown radio play for weeks. -- Alex Gale

Talk-show jingles typically err on the side of saccharine, so it’s no surprise that Pink’s “Today’s the Day,” her theme song for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, is full-blown schmaltz. Which isn’t to say it’s unlistenable -- in fact, the singer turns in a live-for-now anthem that could very well find traction off the screen. -- Steven J. Horowitz

“Easy Love”

With OMI’s “Cheerleader” and Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” topping the Hot 100, tropical house has officially left the stable. London producer Sigala’s U.K. No. 1 “Easy Love” isn’t groundbreaking, leaning on a sample from The Jackson 5’s “ABC,” but it has the breezy hookiness to catch on ­stateside. -- Matt Medved
