Press play on these speaker-ready hits from some of the world's biggest stars, featuring Doja Cat, Cleo Sol, ODUMODUBLVCK and more.
“PARK CHINOIS” by Headie One, K-Trap
Headie One and K-Trap’s highly rumoured and long-awaited mixtape, ‘Strength To Strength’, will be hitting speakers on September 22. But first, fans have this devilish “PARK CHINOIS” single to digest, produced by UK drill trailblazer Carns Hill.
“Gimme Love” by Sia
Its been nearly eight years since Sia released 'This Is Acting', the bobbed pop maverick's last album. “Gimme Love” is the first single from ‘Reasonable Woman’, set for release in Spring 2024.
“Balut” by Doja Cat
Doja Cat reaches for her Erykah Badu bag on “Balut”. Stirring the “On & On” singer’s stripped back boom bap into a cauldron of twisted thought and ominous melody, the rapper’s eccentricity is in full flow on this single.
“Turks & Caicos” by Rod Wave, 21 Savage
Rod Wave’s soulful set of Southern raps sit in contrast to the usual back drops of 21 Savage. However, the Atlanta based wordsmith proves his versatility on “Turks & Caicos”, taken from Rod’s new album, ‘Nostalgia'.
“FAN” by Offset
Is Offset throwing shade at his wife, Cardi B, again? Just days after the pair were spotted at the VMAs, the Migos member finds himself in his feels and rapping, “Girl, you tried to break my heart, did it make you happy?” On “FAN”, he addresses Cardi’s alleged adultery in auto-tuned tones of sincerity.
“Go Baby” by Cleo Sol
SAULT singer Cleo Sol is back with a beautifully intimate nine track album. Titled ‘Heaven’, across 30 minutes, the songwriter crafts angelic atmospheres that melt across her syrup-like croons. “Go Baby”, produced by Inflo, is Cleo at her most spellbinding.
“My Love Mine All Mine” by Mitski
“My Love Mine All Mine” is another therapeutic masterpiece from the mystical Mitski. The unlikely popstar’s new album, ‘The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We’, is packed with lo-fi country bops and moments of orchestral brilliance.
“War With America” by Gretel Hänlyn
Premiered early this week as Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1, Gretel Hänlyn’s “War With America” takes inspiration from the jangly indie hits of The Smiths. Written during an LA music retreat with Charlie Andrew, the track sees the west Londoner at her most visceral.
“On My Love” by Zara Larsson, David Guetta
“On My Love” is the second link up between Swedish popstar Zara Larsson and EDM titan David Guetta. An ode to her younger sister, Hanna Larsson, the single’s euphoric qualities are perfect for Ibiza’s closing months.
"MC OLUOMO" by ODUMODUBLVCK
Nigeria’s hottest rapper returns with a Flamenco-infused drill cut. “MC OLUMO” flips ODUMODUBLVCK’s script, leaning towards skippy percussion and abrasive production.
