A plethora of pop divas are kicking off 2014 in high form, with new singles that could soon be hijacking your radio. Three high-profile singles — a collaboration with Shakira and Rihanna, Miley Cyrus’ latest “Bangerz” cut and Beyonce’s latest Top 20 hit with her hubby Jay Z — are particularly attention-grabbing; but which song will be highlighting your first playlists of the year?
Vote now in the poll below to show us why “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” “Adore You” or “Drunk In Love” is the hottest pop single of the moment:
Shakira and Rihanna’s ska-influenced duet “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” which premiered this Monday (Jan. 13), revels in gorgeous heartbreak, with the pair of pop veterans crooning over the guitar-heavy production of Shakira, John Hill and Kid Harpoon. “Can’t Remember To Forget You” previews Shakira’s first English-language album since 2009’s “She Wolf,” which is due out on Mar. 25.
Meanwhile, the premiere of Miley Cyrus’ “Adore You” music video late last month helped the carefully constructed ballad boost its streaming numbers and skyrocket to a No. 22 peak on the Hot 100 chart. “Adore You” is the third single from Cyrus’ “Bangerz” album, and since the first two radio cuts, “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball,” were inescapable hits last year, it’d be hard to bet against “Adore You” repeating that success.
‘Frozen’ Soundtrack Still No. 1, ‘Beyonce’ Holds at No. 2
And as we still settle down from the shock of Beyonce’s surprise, self-titled fifth album, Bey and Jay’s “Drunk In Love” has started to settle in as a sumptuous Top 40 hit. Peaking at No. 12 so far on the Hot 100 chart, the song nods to the fizzy vibe of past collaborations “Crazy In Love” and “Deja Vu” while creating something wholly original.
