We about to get this started!

Okay so there is SO MUCH new music today that it is impossible to pick one for today's bop. This week's bop is "YES" by Louisa ft. 2 Chainz and it has been on rotation since it was released a few weeks ago. The track easily sounds like it could've been released in the early 2000s, which is obviously anohter reason to love it.

If you didn't know, Louisa Johnson won season 12 of the U.K. X Factor back in 2015. The pop star did an excellent interview with Pop Justice where she talked about her influences behind the track. At first listen, "YES" has an almost Little Mix sound to it and of course there's a reason for that.

"I went for dinner with Camille, who’s done loads of stuff for Little Mix but has also been a good friend since I was in X Factor. And we went, “oh, f*** it, let’s just get drunk.” Which we did. And then we spoke about everything we wanted to put into a song!"

The singer is a big fan of Christina Aguilera's "Dirrrty" and added that to the list of iconic influences. "I’ve always loved Christina and I’ve always loved that song. That song just makes you want to take your clothes off! At the moment there’s nothing that makes me want to strip. And I wanted something that made me feel sexy and empowered. I wanted a big song! I wanted to have a big sing! I said to Camille, ‘I want to be a Christina, not a Britney’."

Louisa is definitely an artist you need to keep on your radar (Britney reference!). And as always, throw this track on your playlist -- you'll thank me.
