Songs You Didn't Expect To Hear On The Radio

Hey, with so many people from different countries in here I wanted to find out what's that song you didn't expect to hear on the Radio. You know that many songs perform amazingly well here in Spotify but few make it to the Top 40 playlists around the world, just because radio's criteria is slightly different (mainstream etc).

 

To start this off here is one. I'm based in the UK and didn't expect to hear J Balvin - Mi Gente - I know it's big in Spain and Latin America but it was a huge surprise to hear it on Capital FM in the UK. I guess Despacito really helped:)

Hey @alexvladev!

 

This is a very cool thread :)

 

I heard this song on the radio the other day: 

spotify:track:2uaVumcCpXgRZcExGkvNoa:small

 

Was pretty cool to hear on Radio 1 - UK as I saw her in a local to me venue a few years ago.

 

Not one that took me by surprise genre wise, but more because it was cool and familiar :)

I heard this song on my local (Indonesia) radio yesterday. I was surprised because they're not popular in here but happy to hear it.

Hi Melody,

This is a great song! Yes Radio 1 are really good in supporting new artists. They were responsible for the success of George Ezra, HAIM and many more. Nowadays very few stations have the guts to play new and unknown music.

Cheers

Alex
