Pen Gutt – Bare Dans
A dreamy gem from the eccentric Norwegian artist whose name translates as “Pretty Boy”. Curious? Read more about him here.
MUNA – Who
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.
