Gunna and Lil Baby f. Drake, "Never Recover"

Gunna, Lil Baby, and Drake go toe-to-toe-to-toe in this high-speed, Tay Keith-produced cut from Drip Harder.

Mariah Carey, "With You"

Mariah Carey delivers a bittersweet ballad that checks all the nostalgic, 90s R&B boxes, while still sounding fresh in 2018.

Pressa f. Lil Uzi Vert, "420 in London"

Pressa's unique delivery keeps "420 in London" interesting, while Uzi's sing-song flow wraps up the track in a neat bow.

Girlpool, "Where You Sink"

L.A. rockers Girlpool returned on Tuesday with two new tracks. "Where You Sink" is one that gets bigger as you listen, the buzzing of the guitar almost drowning out their delicate harmonies.

Lady Gaga, "Why Did You Do That?"

It's billed to be the "bad" song in the spectacular A Star Is Born, but actually, Lady Gaga's pop-forward "Why Did You Do That" is a bop!

Stephen Steinbrink f. Jay Som, "Mom"

Jay Som's Melina Duterte joins at the tail-end of Stephen Steinbrink's "Mom," a lush, and unassumingly-sad folk song about finding respite in a Walmart parking lot at midnight.

Sheck Wes, "Vetements Socks"

With its larger-than-life beat, Sheck Wes' self-gas up on "Vetements Socks," makes it one of the best cuts off his debut album Mudboy.

Cat Power, "Horizon"

Cat Power's 10th album dropped last week. "Horizon," a soft, guitar-plucked cut feels serene and brilliant, like the birth of a new day.

Sigrid, "Sucker Punch"

The chord progression in the hook of Sigrid's "Sucker Punch" will worm its way into your head and never leave. Seriously.

Mr Eazi, "Keys To The City"

Nigerian experimenter Mr Eazi makes a parody of the political system with his wildly fun, and ass-motivating new track "Keys To The City." The music video is also a must watch.
