The Best New Music You Need to Hear (& Why)
1 Gunna - pushin P (ft. Future & Young Thug)- Ever since Gunna teased the album tracklist for DS4EVER fans have had one question: "What does it mean to push P?" According to the Atlanta artist this is the latest slang for keeping it real. Bouncing over a Wheezy production, Gunna, Future and Young Thug illustrate just how they're pushin' P on a daily.
2 The Weeknd - Here We Go… Again (ft. Tyler, The Creator) - After months of hinting at a new album, today The Weeknd's latest body of work Dawn FM has finally arrived. And a highlight is undoubtedly his debut collaboration with Tyler, The Creator. Over an atmospheric instrumental the artists trade verses about the stunning highs of their careers and the loneliness that comes with it.
3 Azizi Gibson - Hate To Say It (ft. Freddie Gibbs) - Azizi Gibson enlists Freddie Gibbs for this groovy track that will have your head bopping and waist wining, produced by Millz Douglas and YG! Beats.
4 Amaarae - SAD GIRLZ LUV MONEY Vigro Deep Amapiano Remix (ft. Moliy & Kali Uchis) - Sad girlz luv Amapiano apparently. That's what Amaarae signalled with the latest remix of her hit song with Moliy and Kali Uchis, this time enlisting South African producer Vigro Deep to give it a danceable update.
5 Young T & Bugsey - Blessings (ft. Chronixx)- When that K. Frimpong sample kicked off the song, I knew it was going to be something special. The 4Play production segues from Highlife to afroswing seamlessly with Young T & Bugsey's sweetly rhyming over the strings and horns, while Chronixx brings it all together with a powerful hook.
