Music fans voted in a poll that was published Friday (Oct. 22) on Billboard, choosing “Moth to a Flame” as their favorite new music release of the past week.
Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd’s shimmering club banger brought in 54.05% of the vote. In second place on the poll results was another hot new collaboration, “Pa Mis Muchachas,” Christina Aguilera’s latest Spanish-language single with Becky G, Nicki Nicole and Nathy Peluso, which had 25.57% of the vote. Lana Del Rey’s new Blue Banisters album came in third place, and Elton John’s The Lockdown Sessions followed in fourth.
“Moth to a Flame” brings pop superstar The Weeknd into Swedish House Mafia’s dance revival; the trio is back together after several years apart and looking forward to an upcoming tour that includes a performance at Coachella.
“When we came back together again, it was like we had to rediscover what this was,” the group’s Steve Angello said in an interview published by Billboard over the summer. “We all have our different likings, obviously. [But then] Seb shows me something, or Ax shows me something I have never seen or heard, and it becomes this magic again that we had when we were young.”
