1. Less than a minute into “I’m Sayin’,” an uptempo track engineered for dancefloors and radio rotation, Omarion delivers a crystal-clear falsetto worthy of applause and multiple replays.
2. For "Last Breath," a cut off the Creed soundtrack, Future raps over a Ludwig Goransson- and Metro Boomin-produced beat sampling the Rocky theme song. 2015 is beautiful.
3. Your speakers might not have enough bass to handle Stormzy’s “Standard,” a dark, gut-punching track that will remind you exactly why he won that Best Grime Artist award at this year’s MOBOs.
4. iLoveMakonnen dropped a new EP, and it's pretty great—a worthy follow-up to last years's runaway hits, particularly on the Santigold-featuring, acoustic-guitar-studded tearjerker "Forever".
5. "Mire (Grant's Song)," dedicated to video director Grant Singer, has got to be the bleakest-sounding thing DIIV has released yet. Yes, that's Sky Ferreira whispering something unintelligible over seasick guitars at the end.
6. Rick Ross’ “Crocodile Python” is a classic Rozay banger—dense, velvety bars, deep crime references, and a lush beat with pounding drums. Pure luxury.
7. Somehow, Emily Yacina's folk-y, bedroom-bred pop songs keep getting better. "Loser" has a soft, sad glow to it—like a paper lantern, or maybe an iPhone with the brightness at half-mast.
8. Cuffing season, shmuffing season, but Ciara’s “Oh Baby,” a sexy R&B jam produced by Dr. Luke, will make you want to draw the curtains and light some candles.
9. Wild Nothing, the dreamy pop project of Jack Tatum, is back with "To Know You," which sort of sounds like a brooding, vaguely heady version of "It's My Life"—Talk Talk's original, not the just-as-good No Doubt cover.
10. "Hello Bitches" maybe isn't the crossover CL smash we've been hoping for, but with its Bollywood-esque melody and some really mucky trap rattles, it's something fun to play while we wait.
