Ronika's Forget Yourself
Evidently channeling early Madonna (reminds me of fan fave 'Think of me' from M's first album) and some other post-disco/pre-house stuff (some Tom Tom Club vocals and Evelyn King 'Love come down' overall feel), this song is lots of fun, isn't compressed to hell, and has a nifty vid too. Also, Ronika appears to be 'hot', but isn't pushing that side of things hard at all (by current pop standards); a good sign. Word is that her follow-up song, Wi Yoo, is even better. Yay.
Update: The Guardian did a 'one to watch' profile of Ronika back in February (which I missed at the time). They were right!
