In Notion Now: Week 39, we have a whole host of collaborations. M Huncho and Nafe Smallz have teamed up, as have James Blake, slowthai and Mount Kimbie, and JC Stewart and 220 KID.

"5AM" by M Huncho and Nafe Smallz

"5AM" is the first single from M Huncho and Nafe Smallz highly anticipated joint album, charting their respective come ups from council estates, the song is certified head-bopper.

"feel away (feat. James Blake and Mount Kimbie)" by slowthai

slowthai continues to defy our expectations of UK rappers by linking up with James Blake and electronic duo Mount Kimbie. It's slow, considered, heartfelt, and well worth a listen.

"god save me, but don't drown me out" by YUNGBLUD

Along with the announcement of his second album ‘Weird!’, the follow up to 2018’s '21st Century Liability' and 2019’s EP 'the underrated youth,' YUNGBLUD drops new single ‘god save me, but don’t drown me out’.

"Own It" by Rico Nasty

“Own It” is an anthem for those who live life by their own rules. Marking a new musical direction with "Own It," and "iPhone," Rico has been coming into her own over the past year. This is a big confident bop.

"Too Many Nights" by 220 KID and JC Stewart

Banger-builder 220 KID has linked up with emerging pop star JC Stewart for this summery bop about spending too many nights out on the lash in the City of Angels.

"W.M." by Tom Aspaul

Tom Aspaul has dropped his debut album, and it's a delicious disco delight. The record tells the story of Tom’s final months living in London, disillusionment with the music industry and the ending of a long-term relationship. Back home in Wolverhampton, he felt more creative than ever, and this record was born.

"Stranger" by Jacob Banks

This tender track from Jacob Banks features distorted vocals and delicate piano melodies. Following a collaboration with fellow Londoner Grace Carter on her track "Blame," Jacob releases his first solo single since 2018’s critically acclaimed debut album 'Village.' The new era of Jacob Banks begins now.

"Cigars (feat. Alfie Neale & Jarki Monno)" by edbl

It's hard to pick a song from edbl's 'Boys & Girls' mixtape, as each one will make you bop your head just as much as the next. Filled with collabs from other promising London talents, this is a delicious blend of jazz, soul and lo-fi hip-hop.

"Agreeable" by Cautious Clay

Independent Brooklyn-based musician, Cautious Clay, serves up a song in his signature blend of poetic and highly observant lyricism. It's a reflection on compromise and a satirical look at the current media landscape.

"Watching You Disappear" by April

Irish newcomer April is one to watch with this soft and ethereal new single. Coming up through SoundCloud, she says that supporting Alec Benjamin on tour helped her gain "a lot more confidence."
