Swedish dance-pop maestro Agnes has released her latest album Magic Still Exists via Universal music. The songstress has been in the spotlight since the tender age of 16, and her major global dancefloor hit ‘Release Me’ topped Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs, reached the Top Ten in charts worldwide and sold over 900,000 copies in the UK alone.
She has since gone on to release a string of hits – but Magic Still Exists is a stunning artistic leap forward. After taking a long break, this album release sees her making a strong statement of creativity, with a truly diverse tracklist. However, the LP has no shortage of commanding dance-pop vibes and certainly calls for repeated listens.
She explains the process behind it: “‘Magic Still Exists’ is a collection of epiphanies about what it means to be human and our need to constantly search for something bigger, something more. The album was made together with friends and the process has therefore been very intimate. Something that made me relax, let go and have fun with it”.

Dance-pop starlet Harper Starling debuts her new release, “No More What If.” Written by Harper Starling and co-written and co-produced by Cindy Valentine (Bebe Rexha, Britney Spears, Alisha) and Niko The Kid (Outkast, Ariana Grande), “No More What If” is a dance-pop anthem designed to get the floor moving, but it’s also an old-fashioned storytelling song — a tale of a creative young woman who loved her home but was also hungry for experience and recognition.
At the core, “No More What If” is an autobiographical tale of Harper taking the leap from her hometown to Los Angeles, the city of dreams. No matter where you’ve grown up, leaving home is hard. If you’re lucky enough to be native to a region as pretty, friendly, and welcoming as Southeastern Wisconsin, it’s tempting to stay in the place you recognize. You might be satisfied with life as you’ve always known it. But if you choose never to chase after your dreams, you may always wonder: what if? Harper unspools this narrative over propulsive beats and sings it all in a voice that shines and moves like a beam of sunlight breaking through the clouds.
The “No More What If” music video premiered exclusively on PopWrapped. The visual, which was directed by Devin J. Dilmore, is moving, heartfelt, and honest, but it’s also quite funny: when the aspiring Harper presents her resume to random passersby on the streets of Hollywood, it’s full of Upper Midwestern in-jokes. Her ability to poke fun at herself, even while she’s pursuing stardom, is incredibly endearing. Underscoring the entirety of the visual is an ode to Southern California: the copious, glorious sunshine, the car rides through glamorous neighborhoods, the scramble up the ladder of showbiz success, and the terrific costumes that the singer gets to wear once she’s made herself at home in Los Angeles.
