    Mabel - "Thinking Of You"

    Mabel's debut single, "Know Me Better," was so good—so personal and intimate—that I was worried she wouldn't be able to match it. Follow up "My Boy My Town" was a solid pop offering from the London-based singer, but "Thinking Of You" is another gem of a love song.

    Where "Know Me Better" focused purely on the excitement of a blossoming romance, "Thinking Of You" sees Mabel unable to take her mind off a lover, even when she's with another man. There's a relatable uncertainty in her lyrics, but that chorus is solid, heartfelt gold. This is contemporary pop music at its very best.—Constant Gardner
