Katy B’s one of our favorite emerging pop stars – her songs are Top 40 radio-ready, sure, sexy, fun, and catchy, but they’re quite smart too, taking account of underground electronic trends and often featuring indie stars. Her new EP Danger is fantastic – it features everyone from Jessie Ware (who duets and trades off admonitions with Katy on “Aaliyah”) to Iggy Azealea (on “Light as a Feather”) to help from the grime rapper Wiley (who adds a verse over a fantastic, tropical-meets-industrial Zinc beat on the banger “Get Paid,” which will be your jam from today into eternity). Check it out.
