Music: Lily Allen - Air Baloon

In a nutshell: Lily is on the road to a mega comeback. She took a break to pursue other ventures in 2009 and we all died a little inside. This year she's back and wittier than ever but can her new single take her to new heights.

What’s it like: Her last song,  Hard Out Here,  was an over-the-top commentary about how girls have it so bad in the music industry, filled with profanities and complaints. This one is a more happy tune, filled with whimsical lyrics and an airy chorus, and not a swear word in sight.

Fave Bit: Apart from a chorus that's so happy and contagious it makes us want to jump off a bridge just to see if we can fly, we really like the verses about telling Kurt Cobain that Elvis already got first base. Naughty girl!

Rating: It's the most contagious Lily Allen song we've heard in years. Simple, hilarious and sure to be a hit. We've missed you Lils   5 /5
