Majid Jordan, "All Over You"

OVO's pop-R&B duo Majid Jordan is back with "All Over You," a pulsating, club-ready banger that will get the vibes flowing whether its 3 a.m. or 3 p.m.

Rvssian, Farruko, J Balvin, "Ponle"

Powerhouse reggaeton alert! It's scientifically proven that if you listen to this Rvssian, Farruko and J Balvin mega-joint on loop, summer will never end.

Lala Lala, "Dove"

Lala Lala's "Dove" is like a pot of emotions left simmering on the stove, with a guitar-frenzy gurgling just beneath the surface and songwriter/vocalist Lillie West's vocals shooting up like steam.

Ryan Hemsworth ft. SK & Tomggg, "Special Girl"

How Ryan Hemsworth managed to successfully combine Shanghai-aesthetics with afropop in this effervescent new single, the world will never know. But I will gladly reap the benefits.

The Pom-Poms, "I GOT THAT BOOM"

Thanks to The Pom-Pom's all-caps-worthy song "I GOT THAT BOOM," I am throwing a rave at my house this weekend and guaranteed, this will be on loop.

YBN Cordae, "Target"

YBN Cordae's solo cut "Target" is a standout on YBN's group mixtape, because of his tight flow and the "what in tarnation" bar he managed to slip in.

Mahalia, "Surprise Me"

Mahalia's chilled-out R&B jam "Surprise Me" comes with an undercurrent of jazzy, dream-inducing saxophone.

duendita, "Magdalena"

Just when you think there's nowhere higher Duendita's angelic vocals can take you, a shimmering dance breakdown kicks in like a jolt of momentum through the body.

Black Belt Eagle Scout, "Indians Never Die"

Hearing Black Belt Eagle Scout's music for the first time will trigger a quiet reflection with their gentle guitar, hollowed tapping, and whisper-soft vocals.

Babeo Baggins, "Mice or Men"

Soft country is now my new favorite genre, thanks to Babeo Baggins's plush and feathery new masterpiece "Mice or Men." I'm a sucker for banjo and these riffs bring a tear to my eye.
