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
“Today’s The Day”
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
