Ola - Maybe
Early August has been a bit of a dry spell, but it seems like once Katy and Gaga dropped their singles, it opened the floodgates, because now I feel like I've got an entire playlist of awesome new music. Number one on that list is Ola Svensson's amazing new single, Maybe. I've always loved Ola. From Natalie to SOS to Unstoppable to I'm In Love, his string of singles is undeniably flawless. In fact, I'd go so far to say that it's one of the strongest runs in current pop music. That run continues (and maybe even hits a new peak) with the epicness that is Maybe. It's mature, somewhat experimental, and most importantly--a total anthem. If this is the new sound of his music, I am totally or it. If we're lucky to get an album as strong as this single, I might just explode as dramatically as the song's chorus.
