It's Tuesday! Time for another round of "5 Must-Hear Pop Songs of the Week"!
'Tis the season to be thankful, so let's all count our blessings and remember what's truly important: Pop music! This week's roundup includes a "Vampire Diaries" actress-turned-chanteuse, an "Idol" legend, rising stars hailing from the U.K. and South Africa, and a mournful masterpiece by an indie darling.
4.) Kat Graham, "Wanna Say (Fred Falke Remix)
"Vampire Diaries" darling Kat Graham shook up our spray cans earlier this year with her tag-tastic clang-a-lang track "Put Your Graffiti On Me." Now, she's back with "Wanna Say," the slick electro-ballad from her debut EP, Against The Wall. To celebrate the release, Kat's collected a slew of killer remixes of her latest single, including one by French house remixer/producer extraordinaire Fred Falke. As with all of his remixes, Falke's taken the track and smoothed it out into a lush, disco stomper, full of warm synthesizers and a driving pulse.
