Dutch polymath Benny Sings has finally moved into the number one spot, thanks in large part to his team up with LA’s own rule-busting popstar, Remi Wolf. The pair’s cheeky spin on bossa nova, “Pyjamas,” has sent the forthcoming LP Young Hearts skyrocketing.

Also ascending are Roísín Murphy’s DJ Koze-produced single “Coocool,” Brazilian crooner Rogê’s Curyman, and Baby Rose’s imminent release Through and Through.

All this and more awaits on our handy Top 30 Spotify playlist
