Track of the week: The Great­est by Raleigh Ritchie We’re big Raleigh Ritchie fans in pop cor­ner, and this tune has us geared up for sum­mer al­ready. The Great­est takes a softer ap­proach than RR’s pre­vi­ous re­leases – it’s all about hav­ing fun with your friends, and how the night never ends and so on. The cho­rus is a jolly lit­tle ear­worm, one you’ll find your­self hum­ming with­out even notic­ing.

Hero of the week is Charli XCX, for re­veal­ing her mas­ter plan. She told Grazia mag­a­zine, “I want to change the mu­si­cal land­scape; I think the over­all plan is to take over the world. That’s ba­si­cally it.” And where did this come from? None other than megas­tar Robyn. Chari went on, “We’d just had this epic dance-off in Australia, she is an in­sane dancer, and I was feel­ing a bit down and in­se­cure at the time. She said, ‘You’ve just gotta be your­self and be nice to every­body – that’s why peo­ple think you’re cool’”.

Zero of the week is bathing in food­stuffs. 5SOS’s Luke told Top of the Pops mag­a­zine, “If I could take a bath in any type of food, it would prob­a­bly be spaghetti or jelly. I don’t know if you can sit in jelly though.” Silly Luke. He went on, “If I could spread a ru­mour about my­self, it would be that Jen­nifer Lawrence and I are dat­ing. Even though that’s never go­ing to hap­pen.”

If you were won­der­ing where Ni­cole Scherzinger gets her ideas, the an­swer is “ex­er­cise”. Scherzy told Now mag­a­zine, “jog­ging is a great car­dio work­out but also helps me get in the right frame of mind . . . I love spin classes and yoga, too.”
