Uncharted: Gryffin & Elley Duhé will tempt MDs with their new energetic dance-pop collab
Gryffin & Elley Duhé – Tie Me Down (GEF/UMA)
Tie Me Down is an energetic pop-dance banger that will have commercial radio bouncing in no time. Gryffin searched long and hard for the right vocalist to compliment his production work on the single and found it with Elley Duhé. The Alabama native is becoming a recognisable fixture at commercial radio, featuring recently on Zedd’s Happy Now. The track debuted at #37 on the latest TMN Hot 100 airplay chart.
Amy Shark – All Loved Up (SME)
Amy Shark is riding high at commercial radio, but there’s still room for more of this Aussie on the airwaves. New single, All Loved Up, is the next (but probably not the last) cut off Shark’s ARIA #1 album LOVE MONSTER to make its way to radio. Co-written and produced by Jack Antonoff of FUN., it’s reminiscent of the driving rhythm and pulse on Lorde‘s Green Light, making this single a firm fixture on our watchlist for the coming weeks.
NF – Lie (CAP/EMI)
NF took radio by storm in 2017 with ARIA Platinum single Let You Down. The rapper made it as far as #15 on the Hot 100, joining the barrage of radio-ready hip hop artists. Lie is NF’s second mainstream radio release which could easily be mistaken as an Eminem track. Can Lie garner a similar reception at commercial? We think so.
Charlie Puth – The Way I Am (ATL/WMA)
With the music video for The Way I Am clocking up over 16 million views on YouTube, commercial radio will be delighted to welcome Charlie Puth back to the playlist. The US producer/singer has had much success at Aussie radio in the past with four singles as a lead artist reaching the Top 10 (Marvin Gaye #10, One Call Away #2, We Don’t Talk Anymore #5, How Long #9).
