• Hayley Kiyoko's I Wish, probably although not def­in­itely this week's best new song, is a superstar pop moment 'and no mistaking'.
  • Charlotte Lawrence takes a step up and slightly to the side, into Eilishish territory, with Why Do You Love Me. The shift suits her; the song has an impress­ive team behind it, including Ali Tamposi, Ryan Tedder, Andrew Watt and Charlie 'You Can't Handle The' Puth.
  • Bishop Briggs also comes into focus this week with the Joel Little-produced Champion.
  • Sam Smith Has Experienced Sadness.
  • chloe mk's new single opens with quite a line: "I miss David Bowie, I miss Prince, I miss the way it used to feel when we were kids."
