November 18, 2015

1. It’s 2015 and there’s a new Missy Elliott song. Listen to it.

2. Ty Dolla $ign throws it back with a Jagged Edge feature on “Straight Up,” a syrupy R&B cut off his debut album Free TC.

3. Experienced together, bleak-sounding single "Hoover" and its crazy good official video prove that Yung Lean is not messing around anymore .

4. On “Untouchable,” newly announced G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T delivers classic bars over a cold, pounding beat anchored by a bold Biggie vocal sample. King Push!

5. Tobias Jesso Jr. told Adele that she was one of his all-time dream collaborators. This week, she dropped a performance video for "When We Were Young," an Ariel Rechtshaid-produced and Jesso Jr.-co-written tearjerker about getting older. Dreams come true!

6. "I think my brain works quite differently from a lot of people," said producer, DJ, and animator Zora Jones. After listening to her gaseous, skittering EP standout "Too Many Tears"—we think so, too.

7. New York rock trio Sunflower Bean debuted a studio version of "Wall Watcher," the compact and infectious first single from their impending debut full-length.

8. Despite its inclusion of generic-voiced post-Myspace pop star Halsey, Justin Bieber's Purpose cut "The Feeling" is a pretty well-constructed slow burner—a soft, bright moment on an uneven album.

9. Some days, it feels like we've been waiting for Wet's new album for all eternity, riding a canoe towards a horizon that never gets any closer. But when the trio drops new, gut-wrenching songs like "It's All In Vain," we're reminded that it's not.

10. Including interludes, Arca's brain-breaking new album is 20 songs long. One of them, "Faggot," starts slow—a couple demented wind chimes and synths that sound like howling ghosts—before evolving into something totally, gloriously evil.
