Rat­ed by The Face: A Week­ly Playlist

The best contemporary music – refreshed weekly.

There’s a daunt­ing amount of music out there and we know it’s hard to keep up. But rather sub­mit­ting your­self to an algo­rithm for new music rec­om­men­da­tions, try this lov­ing­ly curat­ed playlist that The Face will be updat­ing every week. Check it out below. 

Read about last week’s playlist addi­tions here.

Pen Gutt – Bare Dans

A dreamy gem from the eccen­tric Nor­we­gian artist whose name trans­lates as Pret­ty Boy”. Curi­ous? Read more about him here.


We’re total­ly rat­ing LA trio MUNA. Who is an epic bal­lad from their high­ly antic­i­pat­ed sec­ond LP Saves The World.

J Balvin & Bad Bun­ny – Que Pre­tendes

A sum­mer siz­zler for your BBQ sound­track, tak­en from the super­stars’ col­lab­o­ra­tive album Oasis.

H.E.R. – Racks ft. YBN Cordae

Fol­low­ing a spot on XXL’s Fresh­man List and a col­lab with Chance The Rap­per, Cordae’s been on roll. Here he com­pli­ments some pret­ty-much-per­fect R&B from Gram­my-win­ning artist H.E.R.

ser­pen­twith­feet – Receipts ft. Ty Dol­la $ign

Alt-gospel singer ser­pen­twith­feet described this gor­geous tune as a cer­tifi­cate of his new fra­ter­ni­ty with Ty Dol­la $ign. 2019’s cutest bromance. 

Fred­die Gibbs & Madlib – Flat Tum­my Tea

The gen­er­al con­sen­sus is that the rap duo’s new album Ban­dana is incred­i­ble – we’re argu­ing that Flat Tum­my Tea is a highlight.

Yung Baby Tate – Mean Girl ft. Queen Key & Asian Doll

Atlanta’s Yung Baby Tate just dropped a deluxe ver­sion of her LP Girls. This bonus track sees her get mean as shit with fel­low ris­ing MCs Queen Key and Asian Doll.

Brooke Can­dy – XXXTC ft. Char­li XCX & Mali­ibu Miitch

Hav­ing signed to Sega Bodega’s label NUXXE, Brooke’s shared a sweat-soaked sex tune with whis­pered raps from Char­li and Bronx spit­ter Mali­ibu Miitch. Check out The Face’s hon­est inter­view with Brooke Can­dy here.
