If you’re looking for the songs topping today’s pop charts, WVAQ 101.9 FM is the place to go. But we wanted to know what songs get WVAQ’s on-air personalities going. Here are their top picks:
Jack Logar My favorite new song is Justin Timberlake’s “Filthy.” The stripped-down, funky sound is instantly catchy, and I like the way it switches gears. The video is excellent, too.
Jaime Ames I’m really into Camila Cabello’s “Havana” right now. Mostly because of the hook and the lyrics “Jeffrey, just graduated fresh on campus.” Who the heck is Jeffrey? How did he get in this song? I imagine him in a turtleneck doing awkward-dad dance moves.
Jason Knight Fave song at the moment is “New Rules” by Dua Lipa, a great singer-songwriter from the U.K. who sounds like nothing else on Top 40 right now. I’m always intrigued by artists like her that stand out. “Best Friend” by Sofi Tukker is my second choice for the same reason.
Matt Kelly Demi Lovato is my girl, so anything she puts out is always a must-listen for me. Especially her new one, “Tell Me You Love Me.”
Nikki Drake I love songs I can blast and sing in the car. So since Matt already chose our mutual crush Demi, I’m going to go with “Let Me Go” by Hailee Steinfeld and Alesso, featuring Florida Georgia Line and Andrew Watt. It makes me dance and it’s an earworm. — ZH
