Freshen up your playlists and discover this weeks' hottest new tracks from Nicki Minaj, Doja Cat, Griff, Knucks and more.

“Vertigo” by Griff

A dizzying display of where Griff wants to take her sound next, “Vertigo” is the singer-songwriter's first new solo material since the critically acclaimed mixtape, ‘One Foot In Front The Other’. The BRIT Rising Star winner chronicles a story of self-discovery in a way only she can.

“Last Time I Saw You” by Nicki Minaj

Rap queen Nicki Minaj is finally back with solo material. “Last Time I Saw You” has pop-leaning tendencies, showing off the icon’s natural singing prowess. Fans of her rhymes needn’t worry, either, as Nicki gives time to a sweet verse too.

“Demons” by Doja Cat

Doja Cat has a tendency to keep fans on their toes. “Demons” is a raucous rap cut filled with her unambiguous bravado: gritty and guttural, the beat brings a mish-pit-worthy energy ready for her future live shows.

“I Suppose” by Knucks, Larry June, Kenny Beats

When Kenny Beats and Knucks were pictured in the studio all those months ago, UK rap forums went into meltdown. Whipping up a velvety trap cut, the Kilburn via Connecticut link-up brings Larry June on board for a butter smooth West Coast hook and verse.

“Falling or flying” by Jorja Smith

Thus far, Jorja Smith’s releases in 2023 have expanded her sonic palette exponentially. “Falling or flying” is a return to the sultry soul, jazz and R&B we’re more accustomed to from the proud Walsallian. The new record can’t come soon enough.

“AMEN” by Tion Wayne, Nines

A collaboration between British road rap royalty, “AMEN” sees Tion Wayne and Nines unwinding over a Flamenco infused beat. The added gospel elements take the track to another level, contrasting their nonchalant flows with a dramatic rendition of the song’s title.

“Sliding” by Bad Boy Chiller Crew, Window Kid, Charlie Choppa

Struggling to get white boy wasted this weekend? Bad Boy Chiller Crew might be able to help with that. On “Sliding”, the Bradford lads enlist Window Kid and Charlie Choppa for fiery features, veering their quintessential bassline sounds towards deep house tones.

“Peace” by Highlyy

Highlyy is in an exciting period of her career, where she can experiment with sound and cultivate a fanbase unique to her. Thanks to viral hits like “Soldier”, with Tion Wayne, this has already started to happen. “Peace” is just another stop on her route to global stardom.

“Half Doin Dope” by JID, BabyTron, Lil Yachty

Three of the world’s most idiosyncratic flows combine in fine fashion on “Half Doin Dope”. JID rarely misses and his lyrical dexterity brings out the best in collaborators BabyTron and Lil Yachty.

“iBD” by Mac Wetha

“iBD” sees Mac Wetha more accomplished and confident in his sound than ever before. Analysing a feeling of despondency, the multifaceted musician guides himself towards better times, knowing that sadness passes in due course.
