Playlist: 10 tracks you need to hear

By and Lewis Corner
Listen to our ten favourite tracks this week, including The Saturdays, Jennifer Lopez, Simian Mobile Disco and Chris Brown.

The Saturdays: '30 Days' (released May 14)
Before The Saturdays debuted their new single last week, they assured us all that we were going to love it. After giving ourselves a few days to let it sink in, we're pleased to report that they weren't lying. And with its pulsating club beats and a deceptively addictive chorus, this could be exactly what they need to get back on top. RC



Chris Brown: 'Sweet Love'
Announcing new singles has become a weekly Twitter activity for Chris Brown as of late. One such tweet posted his new Fortune single 'Sweet Love', a slow and seductive R&B jam about taking all your clothes off and getting frisky. It's something Breezy is more than familiar with - yes, we've seen that picture. LC



Jennifer Lopez: 'Dance Again' (release date TBC)
We didn't expect J Lo to top the Lambada-sampling 'On The Floor' any time soon, but she's tried her damnedest on latest effort 'Dance Again'. She's followed the same recipe almost measure-for-measure - even roping in Pitbull for a couple of ear-snagging rap skits - and the result, we're pleased to report, is almost as thrilling. RC



Simian Mobile Disco: 'Seraphim' (released April 9)
After a three-year break, British electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco are back with new album Unpatterns on May 14. Lead single 'Seraphim' is a spacey, synth-laden lounge dance number that picks up neatly from 2009's Temporary Pleasure. Listen to the track below: RC



Demi Lovato: 'Give Your Heart A Break' (out now)
Despite three successful albums in America, Demi Lovato has as yet failed to score a smash on the UK charts. Her latest single is finally available on iTunes today, and is another anthemic pop ditty that deserves a higher placing than it is destined for. RC



Rebecca Ferguson: 'Glitter & Gold' (Cahill Remix) (released, April 30)
Rebecca Ferguson has confirmed that she is currently penning dance tracks, though sadly not for herself; so in the meantime we'll have to make do with remixes of her soul-spilling singles. The latest one to receive the club makeover by Cahill is 'Glitter and Gold' - and boy does it make for one classy summer stomper. LC



Ameriie: 'Every Time' (released date TBC)
Unless you've sought to find Ameriie's new material online over the past six years, chances are the last you heard from the urban starlet was '1 Thing' or 'Take Control'. Looking to breakthrough back into mainstream popularity, the singer will release a new mini-LP called The Prelude later this year. The first cut to be teased from the collection is a subtle and classy R&B ditty that showcases the singer's soulful tones. LC



Dev ft. Enrique Iglesias: 'Naked' (out now)
Being greeted by Spanish lothario Enrique Iglesias is a not-too-shabby return to work for new mum Dev. The third single to be lifted from her debut album The Night the Sun Came Up is a moody affair with subtle electronic tinges and lots of sultry glances in the video. And can we just add - will Enrique never age?! LC



Pitbull: 'Back In Time' (released, May 6)
Mr. Worldwide has sampled a popular '50s track (Mickey & Sylvia: 'Love Is Strange') for his latest single, which will feature in the new Men In Black 3 movie. There are happy-clapping beats and dubstep drops, but unfortunately a Will Smith cameo hasn't been included. All our hopes are now pinned on a video appearance or, if we're really lucky, maybe even a remix. LC



Natalie Duncan: 'Gimme Shelter'
Say hello to Natalie Duncan, a 22-year-old singer who is currently catching the attention of the blogosphere with her impressive vocals. Her debut album Devil In Me is due on June 16, but a taster of her gritty and haunting voice can be heard on this cover of The Rolling Stones classic 'Gimme Shelter'. RC
