22 Songs, 1 Hour 17 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Justin Bieber’s fizzy “Sorry,” Demi Lovato’s defiant “Confident,” and Taylor Swift’s mist-covered “Wildest Dreams” are the biggest hits on this collection of mid-’10s pop smashes. Rounded out by up-and-comers like the bracingly honest Alessia Cara, the heartfelt Thomas Rhett, and the spirited X Ambassadors, this edition of the NOW series has a determined bent to it; even those songs expressing frustration, like Daya’s longing “Hide Away,” sound like potential crowd-unifying anthems.

Great selection but....

Why cannot they not be purchased solo. Cake by the Ocean is the only clean version available on apple. While many of the other songs are great I don't want them all. Please make available as singles. Especially when it's the only version out there.

Outstanding look at recent pop music

Other than the last 6 songs which I expect are all What’s Next songs…this is a really awesome look at recent pop music, plus one great country tune. Again, people who don’t like pop music will give this a bad review, but thats so not the point. You should look at NOW as a snapshot of pop music from the previous few months. If it presents that, it is a winner…and this one does.

*Facepalm* What a disappointment...

Every single song on this list is made to get people rich, and quick. The artists on this album exploit the fact that it is a human desire to be like everyone else, and to not be rejected because of their differences. What a shame. What a shame that the songs on this list have little to no thought put into them. What a shame that pop artists care more about the money they get from their work rather than the work itself. What a shame that people are weak enough to not resist peer pressure and the desire to fit in with everyone else. I hope this changes soon, because there are many other artists out there who actually think about their music carefully, and think that money isn't important. They deserve to be on this list. Too bad all the spots are already occupied by garbage.
