1. Dreamiest dreamboat Ozuna takes a tour of Tokyo with an adorable mascot in the video for “Siguelo Bailando," a twinkly tune about asking a cutie to dance.

2. Teenage old soul Kodie Shane is really coming into her own. The proof is in "Sirens," a serious jam for bouncing in the club, featuring Nessly.

3. “Ma Lo,” the infectious African pop hit by Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, and Spellz, finally has a video. In it, the three smoke and dance and get tatted at a wild-looking party.

4. "You get me high with your naughty sensibility," sing rap/soul duo Oshun on “Burn,” a very cool and sexy, spliff-themed come-on.

5. U.K. electro-pop trio Sälen's “I Am Champagne” sounds lush and late-night ready. We imagine it pairs nicely with the titular bubbly beverage.

6. Pairing of the century: Remy Ma got Lil Kim to hop on her reggaeton-informed track, “Wake Me Up.” "Mmm, when the mornin' come / These fake-ass bitches is done," warns Kim, and it's iconic.

7. Indigenous Canadian DJ collective A Tribe Called Red recruited the vibrant Lido Pimienta for “The Light II," a glitchy, big-energy followup to 2016's "The Light."

8. Producer duo (and Majid Jordan-collaborators) Somewhere Else conjure an insane beat for “Uh Huh,” a dance track that comes with a futuristic cowboy video to boot.

9. Jamila Woods and NE-HI — very different musicians, both from Chicago — recently came together to make a charming, soulful pop-rock song called "Times I’m Not There." (It's a remake of NE-HI's 2014 track of the same name.)

10. Hit-making teen Smooky MarGielaa calls for the release of Meek Mill on the Murda-produced "Not Right."

11. Soundtrack legend Mica Levi recently scored a dystopian short animé film called Delete Beach, and the low-key freaky “Interlude 2” is our current favorite of the new compositions.
