Last month wasn't a very big one for international tracks, but there were definitely a few gems you will want to play on repeat. With new releases from Zayn, Sia, and even Sam Smith making a comeback, there's plenty for you to hear. These are the hottest international tracks you can expect to hear everywhere all through October.
Zayn – Dusk Till Dawn ft Sia
The biggest release in September, Zayn and Sia's collaboration was an undeniable hit. Zayn's making his presence felt in the world of pop music, with his song climbing to over a hundred million views in less than a month.
Linkin Park – One More Light
After the passing of the lead vocalist, Chester Bennington, in July, this is the music video the band members have released as a tribute to the late singer. This was a song Chester dedicated to his close friend Chris Cornell, who had passed a few months before the death of Chester. Featuring shots of Chester and the fans of Linkin Park from their concerts, this is an emotional track with a haunting melody.
Ed Sheeran – Perfect
Another beautiful song from his album, Divide (÷), Ed Sheeran released a lyric video only a few weeks ago. This usually means there's a music video on the way. Learn the words to this one quick so you can sing along before you see Ed Sheeran live in India in November.
Sam Smith – Too Good At Goodbyes
Sam Smith's newest single since his famous James Bond theme Writing on the Wall' in 2015, this one is a catchy song with brilliant vocals. It's a soulful song about a relationship, and it's a hit track that's brought the singer back into the limelight.
Jason Derulo – If I'm Lucky
Jason Derulo released the second part of his new single early in September, and it was an instant hit. It has all the classic Derulo upbeat thumps. If you're a Derulo fan, it's another song to add to your playlist before you see him at Timeout 72 in December at Goa.
