Song of the Hour: “Phoenix (feat. Aundrea Fimbres)” by Dawn Richard

There are plenty of diva songs out there in the world right now, but this is the one that I have on repeat. It has all the subtlety of “Let It Go” and the openness of “The Heart Wants What It Wants”, but Menzel and Gomez are old news. Like those stars, Richard puts everything into her vocals, heart and all. Unlike them, she fully embraces pop’s current EDM climate from start to finish. As a result, “Phoenix” would sound right at home on the radio while sounding nothing like its peers.
