Chris-Malinchak-Stranger-2014-1200x1200Chris Malinchak feat. Mikky Ekko – “Stranger” – (2014)

First off, I’ll go out on a limb and say that the vocal here by Mikky Ekko is downright Michael Jackson/Bruno Mars-esque. This top 50 hit in the U.K. is more than a song for summer – it’s good year round. It really could’ve been released off of one of those posthumous Michael Jackson remix albums. That’s a pretty big compliment.
