Nashe Radio Top 5: January 2019

Published: February 1, 2019

Nashe Radio plays popular music that isn’t quite “pop.” What’s big in Russian-language rock, rap, punk, R&B, and alternative? Nashe Radio’s all-Russian and eclectic playlist can tell you. Once a month, SRAS provides a snapshot of what’s at the top of their charts, with YouTube videos and links to our Russian music site.

Here’s how the lineup stood on January 20, 2019:

1. Быть знаменитым (“To Be Famous”) – Башаков Band & Сергей Чиграков

2. Эротические сны (“Erotic Dreams”) – Ногу Свело! feat. 25/17

3. Выше (“Above”) – Кипелов 

4. Эпоха (“The Epoch”) – Ундервуд

5.  Наперегонки (“Racing”) – Танцы минус

There is no music video posted of “Наперегонки,” so here is a song entitled “10 капель” by the same band.
