    APRIL 2021 PJ CHARTS

    RULES

    1. Send a chart of your 10 favourite songs and 5 to 10 favourite albums (using the format below) in a PM to @ohnostalgia
    2. You can choose to send only songs or albums if you wish
    3. The songs can be singles, album tracks, demos, or anything you want.
    4. The albums can be full length, EP, compilations and even unreleased albums
    5. You cannot submit a ballot entirely full of K-pop. There is an equally fabulous K Chart run by @Slice of Life. You must vote for at least one non K-pop song (a K-pop song for the Japanese/Chinese/etc market is treated the same as a release for Korean audiences). I would encourage you to vote for at least one non K-pop album, but it is not required.
    6. The songs and albums can be released whenever, but releases within the past 6 months or so have the best chance to make a chart.
    7. The charts should be what you've been listening to in the past month.
    8. Your favourite song/album gets 10 points, scaling all the way down to 1 point.
    9. The total points earned builds the chart.
    10. An album or song must have a minimum of two voters to chart.
    11. Ties are broken by number of voters, then by highest vote, by quality of vote, then lowest score. If we still can't break parity the entries remain tied.
    12. The top five songs each month make the 2019 PJ Chart Rate, a modified Eurovision Style contest that runs once a year.


    NEW BALLOT FORMAT

    Please use the following template when voting.

    10 points:
    9 points:
    8 points:
    7 points:
    6 points:
    5 points:
    4 points:
    3 points:
    2 points:
    1 point:

    If you are only voting for five albums, stop at 6 points.


    When submitting a specific entry please use the following formats

    Song (Feature Artist) - Main Artist
    Album - Artist

    If a song has two artists, but neither is featured, please submit accordingly

    Song - Main Artist 1 & Main Artist 2


    Thank You.


    VOTES DUE MAY 3rd @ 11:59 PM PACIFIC TIME.

    Countdown to Deadline

    I'm here to officially endorse Bye Bye Baby by Requin Chagrin before @berserkboi says... whatever he says. These are the people who I think would like the album: people who love chill music, people who love city pop, people who love smooth vocals, people who love retro vibes without it being too retro. Generally, people with taste.

    Okay, go ahead and post your discoveries!

  10. Obviously I'll be voting for Fearless, and I think the Swiftie voting bloc should rally around Mr. Perfectly Fine on the song side, but I'll be voting for these songs as well

  11. I think I have fallen even more in love with you <3

    Déjà Vu by them is also incredible and will also be on my ballot! Thank you for also sharing that one <3

    Video (which @ohnostalgia also shared) below:

     
  12. Is this sponsored content?
     
  13. @ohnostalgia @Trouble in Paradise you asked for it so here are the first few Spanish recs for the month. Here is Part 1 of releases I have listened to so far.

    First off we have a song freshly released today by una leyenda mexicana complete with an artsy music video. A No Llorar by one of my former PJ00s acts, Ximena Sariñana.



    Next is the chameleonic Chilean leyenda Mon Laferte with her new album Seis which shows her continue her exploration of traditional Mexican musical genres and other Latin genres. Here is the latest single from the album, La Mujer featuring leyenda mexicana Gloria Trevi.



    The album



    Next up is Colombian/French rey Gabriel Garzón-Montano who has put out a new EP featuring remixes of songs from his previous EP Agüita as well as some of the originals. The one I'd push for is this remix of the title track Agüita featuring Sampa The Great and Amber Mark.



    The EP.

  14. Part 2

    And then there is Mexican actress/singer/reina Danna Paola (you might know her from the show Élite) who has a new collab with David Bisbal called Vuelve Vuelve.



    And Lastly we have Chilean/American singer Paloma Mami who released her debut album Sueños de Dalí last month along with the single Traumada. I included her in last month's playlist but wanted to give her a proper spotlight in case people want to vote for her.



    The album

  15. My FYC for this month (so far)

    St. Vincent decides to transport us back to 1974:


    Marina's new banger:


    Brilliant song by an up-and-coming 16 year old artist Willa Amai:


    A music video and remix of one of the most oddly controversial songs by Gwen:


    And just in case you have a blank spot in your top 10:
     
  16. Thank you @Oleander ! Will definitely give them all a listen and always here to support El Rey GGM!!

    Now my question for the culture this month is which London Grammar track to rally around? I feel like we could get Top 10 and maybe Top 5 if we coordinate!!
     
  17. It should be (or maybe @ohnostalgia just knows my pain! Ddd)

    I mentioned my April Chart would be a little manic due to amazing news, but also awful news.

    One piece of amazing news was the spectacular return of Requin Chagrin which is already covered by our Host.

    Let me get the awful news out of the way first.

    VIDEOCLUB as they were are no longer! Adele and Mathieu have broken up in real life and have parted ways.

    They have released SMS as their farewell single, with a Music Video that is a triumph!



    It recounts via SMS their journey from when they met to wishing each other the best for the future at the end. All the highlights of their 3 years together, their amazing singles, their first concert etc. My heart is heavy!!!

    upload_2021-4-17_10-48-55.png

    Adele is continuing on under the VIDEOCLUB moniker, and considering she is the prime lyricist - I am still looking forward to what she does with the band from here!

    @boombazookajoe @backstreetjoe and everyone else who has the space - please consider throwing some points to SMS, and the still glorious album Euphories (which now makes even more sense lyrically in the track sequencing - recounting the beginnings of a relationship, the promises of young love to the slow realisation that a future together with this person is not where your life is heading!)



    A veritable modern classic <33

  18. On to amazing news, shall we?



    That's right - iconic French Diva Sheila still going strong at 75, kicking an ageist industry in the n*ts!

    Her new album has her signature beautiful midtempos in which she excels



    Though the song to rally behind is Law Of Attraction, as the tweet suggests - Nile Rodgers (who produced the amazing Spacer for her {and subsequently Alcazar's international career ddd}) is back working with her 40 years later and the song is a massive Retro fabulous BOP, though still pretty modern sounding!



    Continuing amazing 70s throwbacks - I also recommend A Bouche Que Veux-Tu by Brigitte to @Aester @CorgiCorgiCorgi @Oleander @Music Is Death and everyone who likes the sound of 'Can't Get You Outta My Head as a 70s French Disco Song that would fit into the Aphrodite album pretty seamlessly!'

     
  19. My biggest recommendation this month, and I beg of you all to give this a chance:

    Indonesian Pop star (and hunk) Afgan just released his first English language album, an R&B opus Wallflower. It’s a stunning collection. Immaculate vocals, smooth beats, feel good sexy time music. It’s perfect. Lead single features K-Pop artist Jackson Wang (from GOT7). Y’all check this out!
