12 Songs You Need In Your Life This Week Shania Twain: UMG Recordings; Rihanna: Epic Records; Chelsea Wolfe: Sargent House; Young Ejecta: Driftless Recordings.  

1. Because she is generous of spirit, Rihanna gifted DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller with her time and vocals for “Wild Thoughts,” a Carlos Santana-sampling lovers jam.

2. Cardi B is the boss so get out of the way, please, while she makes her money moves on “Bodak Yellow.” "Don't get comfortable," she warns.


3. Never date a writer, Lorde cautions on the mega-romantic piano ballad, "Writer In The Dark" — we've got "secret powers."

4. In honor of Father’s Day, we nominate the honeyed “Daddy’s Birthday,” for realest and catchiest off Young Thug’s (Easy Breezy) Beautiful Thugger Girls.

5. Pharrell and Pusha T jumped onto “OMG,” Vic Mensa's heavy new single, on which he raps about race and his career.


6. While we wait for that inevitable PARTYNEXTDOOR “Wild Thoughts" demo 👀, here’s “One I Want,” a really sexy, low-key track by Majid Jordan featuring PND.

7. There is a new Shania Twain song. It is called “Life’s About To Get Good.” Need we say more? (Please let life get good.)

8. With a beat hinged on Armenian sounds and phone rings, Colombia's Bomba Estéreo have a new smash on their hands with “Duele.”


9. Chelsea Wolfe has gone doom metal, starting with “16 Psyche,” a total rager inspired by a giant, metallic asteroid.

10. Techno pop duo Young Ejecta's unearthly “Build A Fire” is either about perseverance or death. Not sure, but either way, good for grooving.

11. Bouncing on a simple high-key melody, Rejjie Snow raps solo in the woods in the video for his raunchy “Unborn.”


12. Produced by J Hus collaborator Jae5, U.K. afropop group NSG and Geko's "Yo Darlin’" is hot and extremely fun.
