Jessie J ft. B.O.B.: “Price Tag”
It’s not about the money, money, money, says this sunny (sunny, sunny) pop manifesto.
Lauriana Mae: “Money Mae”

Gavin DeGraw: “Not Over You”
Piano man insists he doesn’t miss you, but teardrops on the keys don’t lie.
Ed Sheeran: “Lego House”
More pretty pining for a second chance, via the young U.K. busker-turned-chart-topper.
Wiz Khalifa: “Roll Up”
Hip-hop’s love concierge will fetch breakfast, provide rides on short notice.
French Montana: “Shot Caller”
Bronx MC won’t run errands, but he does like a girl who knows what she wants.
Tennessee pop-punk titans go Twilight, channel rain-foresty vampire angst.
Tonight Alive: “Breaking & Entering”
Tiny girl with big lungs fronts a similarly full-of-feelings rock fivesome from Down Under.
Pitbull: “Give Me Everything”
The club king gets reckless, finds romance beneath the strobe lights.
Example: “Changed the Way You Kiss Me”
