Hello. Today marks the beginning of June which means we’ve already had five full months of great music that 2016 has given us. May was really interesting as we had numerous world stopping releases from some returning stars.
Chance The Rapper made history by having his new (free) album Colouring Book chart on the Billboard charts. We also had a brand new album from Radiohead and in the singles world Justin Timberlake returned to win us over with Can’t Stop The Feeling – a song which our parents are going to be grooving over at mobile discos for years to come.
Here you can see some Radiohead diehards making the great sacrifice to the great Lord Yorke.
May was hugely successful for me in my hunt for the best new music around as I found a total of 136 songs that caught the fancy of my ears and imagination.
Below you’ll find the radio show playing you the remainder of the best tunes of the month as well as The Top 10 of May. If you’re dead lazy here’s that Top 10 in list form for you too!
