Yunè Pinku – Killing Bee

Since dropping her first track two years ago, Yunè Pinku has mastered the art of merging pop with club music. Killing Bee sees Pinku leap towards the latter, conjuring memories of perspiring ravers gathered in austere warehouses. DR

P‑rallel – Go by ft. Deto Black

For the lastest single on his debut mixtape Movement, rising producer P‑rallel teamed up with London-via-Lagos artist Deto Black, whose sultry raps ride coolly over the slick, adrenaline-fuelling beat. JW

Brent Faiyaz – Upset ft. Tommy Richman & Felix!

Brent Faiyaz rejects the toxic R&B’ tag. But on Upset – a highlight from the Maryland-raised crooner’s new album Larger Than Life – he’s once again delivering eyebrow-raising bars with irresistible melody. I don’t care if I’m in the wrong,” he shrugs on the buttery hook, I don’t get upset.” DR

Rema – Don’t Leave

Fresh off the back of his Pretty Girl collab with Ice Spice, Rema has dropped his new EP, Ravage. One of the project’s stand-out tracks, Don’t Leave sees the Nigerian star contending with an obsessive partner, while secretly enjoying the sexually-charged back-and-forth: She seizing up my keys /​New level tease /​She no wan share my body with no other girl /​She’s on some Jolene”.

Bar Italia – Worlds Greatest Emoter

Every now and then, Bar Italia like to have a laugh with their song titles. On their debut album Tracey Demin, there was a track called Yes I Have Eaten So Many Lemons Yes I Am Bitte. For this second single from The Twits (their second album of 2023) they’ve outdone themselves, naming it in reference to Liam Payne’s affectionate, yet utterly deranged, comments about Will Smith at last year’s Oscars.
