Citizen Queen, "Y"
The five outstanding vocalists in this RCA troupe knock some classic-style R&B balladry straight out of the park on this powerhouse cut. The gorgeous video, meanwhile, underscores the refuge of close friends in the wake of a heartbreak. The song was co-penned by some masters of the game: Justin Tranter (Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber), the duo NOVA WAV (Beyoncé, Ariana Grande) and Morten Ristorp Jensen (Lukas Graham, Little Mix); it was produced by NOVA WAV and Morten Ristorp Jensen. Ethan Lader helmed the clip.
