Also, Josie Dunne and The Candescents Entice Us to Be Cool for the Summer.
Let out some stress with these irresistible anthems.
Ready to Pop is about to snap, crackle and, umm, pop. We all have that one person we meet that makes us absolutely crazy. Whether it is their natural allure or some unspoken sexual bond, we are drawn into a dark and sinister web. We can either have a little fun or hold onto those unshakable feelings until we completely fall apart. In today's roundup, we've got pop breakouts just itching to let out a little stress. Below, check out our latest obsessions, rated on a (slay) scale of "Super Chill" to "Shook" to "Wig Snatched."
Cappa - "Tension"
Pop darling Cappa puts the squeeze on a potential playmate with "Tension," in which she not only tells him flat-out exactly what she wants but whistles her intentions through cutesy flicks and flutters. "I can't ignore what I'm feeling...for you," she coos, rosy-cheeked and Marilyn Monroe-esque. The production is elastic, almost an unstoppable force on its own. "Let's break the tension, baby," she sings, shedding light on the sexual tension that's connected both of them for a long time now. Through batting her eyes and licking her lips, all of that falls away in this gloriously neon-strewn anthem.
Slay Scale: Shook
Zayde Wølf - "Take a Look at This"
"Let me take you on this vacation," the enchanting provocateur Zayde Wølf eyes on the high-octane "Take a Look at This," an unflinching, enticing, and sexy ode from his new album, Modern Alchemy. From the sultry guitar riffs, beautifully-electric drum work and Wølf's sensual vocal proclamations, the rowdy fire-burner lets it all hang out. He opens with cool confidence, vowing, "Sweet sweat on my bones / Let me tell you what I wanna do." If that doesn't get you a little hot, nothing will.
Slay Scale: Wig Snatched
Shiragirl - "Summers Comin"
The heart wants what the heart wants. Shiragirl should know. Her new raucous and enormously infectious jam "Summers Comin" is a down 'n dirty love song. "He's got a girl but he's falling for you," she spits over deliciously rock-fused production. It's a righteous and charming punk anthem that not only sees the performer vying for another guy's heart but also imagines what the summer could bring: maybe a bodacious fling, maybe some heartbreak, maybe a party by the beach. Who knows?
Slay Scale: Shook
The Candescents - "Boyfriend"
Ok, so, you know that feeling of really liking someone but you're downright terrified of commitment? Enter The Candescents' new single "Boyfriend," a sunny So-Cal excursion of trepidation. "I don't want to be your boyfriend," rings the slithering hook. It might appear to be the oddball of the bunch, but there is still an intonation of love-torn affection the narrator has for a should-be lover. "It's so obvious, yeah, you're just what I like," front man Alex Harris sings, trying to mask his deep emotions. But his inflection deceives him. He wants her, and they'll probably hook up at some point. Yeah?
Slay Scale: Super Chill
Josie Dunne - "Make You Mine"
Josie Dunne knows exactly what she wants. Wielding invincible charm, she pulls you in just like a siren beckoning sailors on the shoreline. "One kiss, one touch, you're mine," she sings over layers of jazz-infected power-pop. The piano and big horns shimmer around her searing vocal line, borrowing from the classics but updated with a potent modern sheen. "Boy, I haunt your mind," she asserts. Well, she's certainly got us hooked!

The young star died in his sleep one year ago today.
Everyone who knew Cameron Boyce during his life described him as unfailingly kind.
The actor died unexpectedly on July 6th 2019 after suffering a seizure in his sleep. Since then, co-stars, friends, and fans alike have been grieving his loss.
At just nine years old, Boyce made his acting debut in a Panic! at the Disco music video. He soon became a household name among a certain age group thanks to his role in Jessie, a Disney Channel show that ran from 2011 to 2015. His movie credits include Mirrors, Eagle Eye with Shia LaBeouf and Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2 with Adam Sandler.
The only Black Driver in the top tier of NASCAR, Bubba Wallace is standing strong
Update 7/6/2020: On Monday morning President Trump tweeted about the noose incident, referring to the mistaken intent of the noose as a "HOAX" and wondering if Bubba Wallace had apologized to "those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid." President Trump also asserted that the incident, along with NASCAR's decision to ban the confederate flag had resulted in the association losing viewership for their races, yielding what Trump termed their "lowest ratings EVER!"
