Raleigh gears up for summer, Pitbull and Ricky join forces
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.”
