The 10 Best Electro-Pop Tracks Of The 2010s

The 10 Best Electro-Pop Tracks Of The 2010s
I can’t believe years pass by quickly. Here’s my list of the best Electro-Pop tracks of the decade. If you listen carefully to each of these songs, you can realize the evolution of sound. For instance, Pop music was influenced by Benny Benassi’s signature Electro rhythm in the early 2010s. We also witnessed a trend where underground European DJs got attention from the American mainstream audience. Later, indie artists got their turn into the spotlight thanks to social media and music blogs. Perhaps, in the 2020s, artificial intelligence (AI) will transform the way we perceive the music industry these days. Only time will tell if this technological advance will come true.

2010 ★ Robyn – Dancing On My Own

Sweden is a country with so many great singers. I think Robyn earned worldwide recognition with this Electro-Pop ballad which revolves around a gal who dances alone in a club while watching her ex-boyfriend with a new girlfriend. Hell yeah, I love drama!

2011 ★ Britney Spears – Hold It Against Me

Nobody could forget this hit entitled, “Hold It Against Me” by Britney Spears. After a series of scandals, the American Popstar bet for modern and refreshing melodies. The song itself feels poppy but it also features a touch of Dubstep, which was synonymous with innovation at that time. In my opinion, the album ‘Femme Fatale’ is her best work to date.

2012 ★ Madonna – Girl Gone Wild

Madonna is never out of fashion and all her singles are timeless. From my view, this is one of the sexiest tunes she has ever made.  It’s not surprising “Girl Gone Wild” became her 42nd number-one dance hit on the Billboard chart. Believe it or not, the whole track was inspired by the androgynous Ukranian group Kazaky, who made a cameo in the black-and-white clip.

2013 ★ Empire Of The Sun – Alive

This list would not be complete without Empire Of The Sun. The most popular Australian duo of the 2010s is admired by millions of fans across the planet. I remember this track was featured in a video game, TV series, and movies. Immediately, “Alive” became a platinum-certified single in 2013. The chorus is so damn catchy!

2014 ★ Kiesza – Giant In My Heart

Canadians should feel proud of Kiesza. House music meets Electro-Pop, that’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear “Giant In My Heart”. Best of all, the powerful vocals are eargasmic and I have to admit I have played this track thousands of times on repeat.

2015 ★ Grimes – REALiTi

Weird, original, and authentic, that’s how we can describe Grimes’ Electro-Pop melodies. “REALiTi” was actually an old demo which eventually became one of her best songs in 2015. Despite its original recording quality, this hypnotic song was praised by her fans in Asia, MTV, plus the blogosphere. It is worth mentioning it feels like the perfect radio-friendly track to sing in the car.

2016 ★ Niki & The Dove – So Much It Hurts

This Swedish duo deserves way more attention. “So Much It Hurts” is an incredible Electro-Pop ballad accompanied by an 80s style music video that’s impossible not to love. Likewise, the emotionally charged nature of this masterpiece makes you want to sing it out loud no matter what.

2017 ★ The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk – I Feel It Coming

In the middle of the 2010s, artists were more interested in analog synths and retro vibes. So, The Weeknd and Daft Punk joined forces to create “I Feel It Coming”. Here you have a wonderful anthem that reminds us of the King Of Pop, Michael Jackson. On a side note, lyrics according to the singer, lyrics were written in one hour.

2018 ★ NINA – Sleepwalking

The German singer based in London has a bright future ahead due to the futuristic vibes of her songs. With “Sleepwalking”, she takes Synthwave to the next level by infusing emotions and Pop sensibilities. She knows how to reinvent the golden age of 80s music and I love it!

2019 ★ Toro y Moi – Ordinary Pleasure

Chaz Bear aka Toro y Moi criticizes consumerism and the Throw-away society on this fun tune called “Ordinary Pleasure”. The American artist offers chilled vibes in combination with upbeat Disco beats. Definitely, he knows how to get you grooving in mere seconds, leaving listeners craving for more.

A Great Singer-Songwriter To Have On Your Pop Radar, Raymond Revel
If you think it’s time to update your Spotify playlist, then Raymond Revel‘s “Empty” is my best recommendation. You’ll want to keep your ears on this American singer-songwriter who independently creates original tracks. Hailing from Burbank, California, the piano was an important part of his childhood. Believe it or not, he also started writing songs since he was 11 years old.

Throughout his career, Raymond has been an in-demand background vocalist for Demi Lovato, Pharrell, Little Big Town, among other music stars. Confident in his skills, he left a band in order to pursue a journey as a solo artist. Today, he’s offering the most refreshing production he has ever released. Backed by electronic beats and bright synths, “Empty” comes in a radio-friendly format for a wide audience. Besides its rhythm, the chorus is catchy as hell. No doubt, the song will get stuck in your head.

Can’t wait to hear his next single, “Ourselves”, out on March 8th. Stay tuned!

"Groovin' Is My Hobby".  
If you’re seriously starting to miss 80s Synthpop music, then you’ll remember those great melodies thanks to Munatix. The Belgian duo made up of Ricky and Josh showcase their big love for analog music sequencers on “Groovin’ Is My Hobby”. Before you get your own conclusions, I would dare to say their infectious rhythm emulates some cheerful songs from the likes of Erasure, Yazoo or even Jean Michel Jarre. On the other hand, the well-written lyrics talk about the extreme enjoyment you can experience at nightclubs. Perhaps, it’s inspired in John Travolta’s film, Saturday Night Fever. Stream in full below via Spotify.

Billie Eilish's "Everything I Wanted" Video Has A Surprise Ending
See Billie Eilish‘s music video and wait for the surprise ending! She wrote “Everything I Wanted” along with her brother, Finneas. It’s a brand new road trip song you’ll have to consider for your car playlist. In fact, in the clip, the 18-year-old artist takes a ride to an unknown destination. As the plot develops, you will notice everything looks more like a nightmare.

If you’re interested in smooth, slow Electro-Pop rhythms, then this tune was made for your ears. Billie’s ethereal/heavenly vocals are my favorite part of the whole composition. Her voice is out of this world, and it’ll give you goosebumps. Finally, I can understand why she won 5 Grammys in the last 62nd edition.

Pet Shop Boys Reappears In New Music Video, "Monkey Business"
It’s great to see Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe actually in the video for “Monkey Business”. Believe it or not, the last clip where Pet Shop Boys appear was on “Thursday” six years ago. On this occasion, they are back with a groovy/funky melody that lacks the energy it requires to be played at the clubs. Perhaps, I believe it was designed to be remixed…

Anyway, their 14th studio album, ‘Hotspot’ produced by Stuart Price sounds pretty amazing. I swear I can’t stop playing the upbeat anthems “Happy People”, as well as, “Wedding In Berlin”. On the other hand, Electro-Pop gems like “Hoping For A Miracle”, and “Only The Dark” are particularly blissful. Stream in full down here via Spotify:
