Jess Glynne, the Grammy-winning voice of Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be,” stops by the Pop Shop Podcast this week to discuss her debut album I Cry When I Laugh, plotting a solo career, overcoming heartbreak and her love of soccer and horseback riding. Before that, Jason and Keith talk about Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth‘s “See You Again” bumping Taylor Swift‘s “Bad Blood” out of No. 1; Hot 100 moves from The Weeknd, OMI, Shawn Mendes and Shaggy; A$AP Rocky collecting his second No. 1 album, and next week’s battle between full-lengths from Florence + The Machine and Jason Derulo; and Caitlyn Jenner getting poked fun of by D-list musical celebrities, and why artists need to think before they tweet. All that, plus Entourage, Heart, more Keith goofiness and much more.
