Secret Fave: BFF
This gender-neutral pop singer has been around for a few years, but some of their best songs have been released in the past couple of months. Dealing with subjects of identity and having a good time in your skin, Dorian Electra has an upbeat pop sound incorporating some more traditional musical elements. For sure give them a listen
Iconic Banger: Man to Man

Slightly toned down relative to the first two on this list, Miya Folick is an LA based artist making breezy, emotional music that still has a groove to it. Her 2018 album Premonitions has everything from dance-pop to moody ballads, and her new single “Malibu Barbie” is perfect for the summer. Time to stat streaming her ASAP.

Saving the best for last, Canadian dreamgirl Tommy Genesis is going to rap her way right into your heart this summer.
