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
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.
Get Some Instant Relief From Stress With Amadante’s Chill Music
Easy on the ear, the soothing flow of “Blue Green Yellow” from singer, songwriter, and pianist Amadante creates a relaxing atmosphere. He was able to develop creative spontaneity since early childhood. In fact, when it comes to composing genuine songs, his inner impulse without premeditation sets him apart from other artists. Over the years, Amadante became a musical prodigy on the keys. This is evidenced by his signature style which is synonymous with feel-good vibes. In the case of “Blue Green Yellow”, listening to dreamy synths over piano chords is a stress reliever. Definitely, the whole soundscape it emits is pleasantly calming. To my mind, his romantic lyrics reach new heights of expression as he incorporates the elements of fantasy and colors. In just three and a half minutes, he describes the magical feeling of falling in love. The chorus also revolves around emotional empathy. Certainly, he should also be considered a modern-day poet.

Are you eager to hear fun, dancey, and upbeat music? Then, you need to explore the art of Monotronic. They are a New York-based collective led by creative producer Ramsey Elkholy. Catchy as hell, “Kids Of Summer“ will melt every single speaker. As a matter of fact, this tune already reaches 22K Spotify streams in such a short time. Thinking about it, I believe the feel-good vocals are the precious nectar of the composition.
While it is true, the sound of Monotronic can’t be boxed into only one genre, their new banger is built on pure electronic music, drums, and bass. Moreover, this song exhibits the band’s great songwriting. No one can deny, “Kids Of Summer” is brimming with positive lyrics with an escapist feel that invites you to chase your dreams. Sure enough, this context matches up so well with the music video, in which, enthusiasm and energy arouse the choreography. On a side note, the clip also plays a subtle tribute and support to the Black Lives Matter movement, aimed to bring justice, healing, and freedom to black people across the world.
Nowadays, Elkholy has decided to shift gears, focusing less on playing gigs and more on recording and songwriting, which led to a series of upcoming singles and videos to be released throughout 2020. If “Kids Of Summer” is nearly perfect ear-candy, I can’t wait to hear “Buy Yourself A Dream”, out next month.
