Way to go, Nicki Minaj! The Harajuku Barbie will be inciting dance floor panic with her winning About to Pop track, ‘Pound the Alarm,’ on more than 20 radio stations nationwide this weekend! Now, with ‘Pound the Alarm’ taking the About to Pop win for this week’s radio broadcast, it’s time for five new tracks to duke it out.

No Doubt are leading About to Pop this week with their first single in over a decade, ‘Settle Down.’ It’s so great to hear new music from Gwen, Tony, Tom and Adrian! Following behind are Canadian pop-rockers Hedley, whose new single ‘Kiss You Inside Out’ is starting to get picked up outside their homeland in the Great White North. Sean Kingston is also in the running with his T.I.-collaborative track ‘Back 2 Life,’ as is U.K. crooner Conor Maynard with his single ‘Vegas Girl.’ Finally, closing out this week’s About to Pop is newcomer Chris Wallace with his 2012 single ‘Remember When (Push Rewind).’

Listen to all of this week’s About to Pop tracks below and decide which artist will get your vote. Will it be No Doubt’s ‘Settle Down’? (The audio below is the album cut, but we will broadcast the radio edit if it wins.) Or are you addicted to the sounds of Hedley? Maybe Sean Kingston is your perfect summer jam? Or perhaps Conor Maynard has stolen your heart with the hip-hop-inspired ‘Vegas Girl’? Maybe you’re really digging this new Chris Wallace track? Whatever your reasons, be sure to cast your vote below — you can vote every hour until 3PM EST on July 23, when the poll will close.


Rules: The song with the most votes will get aired on the PopCrush Top 20 syndicated radio show, which airs on over 20 radio stations across the United States.
