ARIANA GRANDE FEATURING IGGY AZALEA

“Problem”

Doing her best to bring back ’90s R&B—and the sax!—the powerhouse popster gets a sassy rap assist from Azalea on this insta-hit.

USHER

“Good Kisser”

JENNIFER LOPEZ

“First Love”

I wanted “I Luh Ya Papi” to get more love, but J.Lo’s latest preview of A.K.A., due June 17, kicks a fresh sound with its Princely pop-rock produced by Max Martin.

PRIYANKA CHOPRA

“I Can’t Make You Love Me”

Heard in the current Beats Pill XL ad, this EDM update of Bonnie’s Raitt’s classic actually works. Really.
