"Sprinter" by Dave, Central Cee
A London link up like no other, not only does “Sprinter” enlist two of the city’s biggest stars, but extra production credits also come from Jim Legxacy and Kyle Evans. The “Too Many Man” evoking hook isn’t too bad, either.

Burna Boy throws it back to the ‘90s on new single, “Sittin’ On Top Of The World”. Adding his distinctive Afrofusionist flavours to a Nelly-esque hip-hop hit, the track oozes main popstar energy.
"Popular" by The Weeknd, Playboi Carti, Madonna
The Weeknd, Playboi Carti and Madonna would be an interesting blunt rotation. Each artist plays to their strengths on “Popular”, produced by Mike Dean and Metro Boomin.
"Icy" by 49th & Main
Hailing from the Irish town of Kilkenny, 49th & Main are an indie-pop duo with electronic tendencies. “lcy” is a soul bursting lo-fi techno hit.

Everyone's favourite icon, Bimini is back and unleashing the uplifting house banger “When the Party Ends”. The Great Yarmouth born artist has been spending the last year writing with esteemed collaborators, so expect more soon.
"Rust" by Yussef Dayes, Tom Misch
South London-raised producer, composer and drummer Yussef Dayes holds down the beat on another scintillating single, partnering with long-time collaborator Tom Misch. “Rust” and its glistening open-ended grooves brings a unique energy just in time for his forthcoming Royal Albert Hall set.
"Alright" by Sam Fischer, Meghan Trainor
Australian singer-songwriter Sam Fischer duets with Meghan Trainor on contagious pop single, “Alright”. The track sees him stepping away from his trusted guitar and onto the dancefloor for an afrobeat-tinged cut.
