Jamie Skey @jamie_skey rounds-up all this week's most significant singles, plus the new songs that have surfaced online in the last seven days that you shouldn't miss...
On Perfect Replacement, Fulham rapper-turned-crooner Example is obviously eager to show he hasn't gone completely soft, as some of his most recent song-orientated releases might suggest. Seemingly channelling The Prodigy, this song conjures up some near-apocalyptic, punk-rave buzz, pitting cartoonish breakbeats against digitised, metallic riffery.
Franklin, Tennessee emo-rockers Paramore have had a Number 1 album in the
UK and sold out enormodomes including London's 02 Arena, and with the hooks drilled into pogo-pop new single Now, it seems highly likely Hayley Williams and her boys will only get bigger.
Having taken a five year break from music, Dido is back with a new single No Freedom and has died straight back into vaguely Celtic folk-pop that originally caught Eminem and co's eye.
His 2012 motto was "Evolve Or Be Extinct", a proclamation which Wiley seems to have stuck to on Reload, which sees the hard-working grime star veer away from grime into scream-if-you-want-to-go-faster rave territory.
Laura Mvula has already demonstrated an impressive number of shades with her releases thus far. Her debut single She boasted a heart-stopping fragility, while its b-side Like The Morning Dew was boldly dexterous with its harmonics. New single Green Garden sees her revealing yet another site, this time a mix of lush soul grooves and timeless, finger clicking beats that will get you dancing.
After winning big at the Brit Awards, Emeli Sande is celebrating by re-releasing her track Next To Me, albeit with a guest-spot from Kendrick Lamar, who spits a couple of laconic verses over Sande's jaunty number.
