Tierra Whack, "Unemployed"

Nonstop Tierra over 8-bit trap.

Chief Keef & Zaytoven, "Petty"

Melodic Chief Keef + Zaytoven piano = *chef's kiss*.

Lizzo f. Missy Elliot, "Tempo"

Lizzo is Sizzling Hot like butter in a skillet. Also Missy Elliott purrs.

Dave f. J Hus, "Disaster"

London's Dave and J Hus trade gritty bars on "Disaster." Appreciate this savage one from Dave: "You better pray to God whenever I'm in town, like a kid in a divorce, I'm leaving with your spouse."

suckerpunnk, "Devil on My Shoulder"

Protect suckerpunnk, a singer from Charlotte who makes emo/rock/rap sludge that deserves to be as iconic as Avril Lavigne's peak catalogue.

Santi, "Sparky"

Nigeria's Santi puts an icepack on Afrobeats for his liquid-y new single, "Sparky."

Weyes Blood, "Movies"

Massively cinematic-sounding, Weyes Blood's "Movies" is a dive into a world that's bigger and more possible than our own.

EMPATH, "Hanging Out Of Cars"

EMPATH's newest whips up a chaos of noise and delirium that I imagine mirrors the feeling of speeding down the freeway with your head out the window.

Jamila Woods, "EARTHA"

Jamila Wood returns with "EARTHA," an early morning mood-setter with deep-cutting grooves.

Lust for Youth, "Great Concerns"

Lust for Youth laments climate change and deranged people over a bright, but brooding synth-pop beat.
