Read about last week’s playlist additions here.

BTS & Juice WRLD – All Night

The K‑pop stars have dropped another tune from their mobile game BTS World – this one features Chicago singer-rapper Juice WRLD plus production from members of NYC hip-hop crews Pro Era and Beast Coast.

Stefflon Don & Lil Baby – Phone Down

Steff continues to aim for a US audience. This time, she’s teamed up with Atlanta’s Lil Baby for a pop-rap banger, urging her man to stop scrolling and give her the attention she deserves. It works.

Caroline Polacheck – Door

A stunning debut solo single from the ex-Chairlift member.

Alex Cameron – Divorce

The Aussie musician has announced his forthcoming album Miami Memory, which tells the story of a couple balancing sex with contemporary family values”. Eccentric single Divorce details romantic tribulations, from futon couches to drinking in the dark.

black midi – Near DT, MI

A ferocious track from the pint-sized noise-rockers that references the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

K‑Lone – Sine Language

A slick, moody track fresh out of Bristol’s underground club scene.

Mach – Hommy – Mittrom FT. Earl Sweatshirt

Earl’s hopped on a track with the mysterious New Jersey rapper Mach-Hommy. It’s reminiscent of the mushy psychedelic vibe of Earl’s 2018 album Some Rap Songs.

P’ierre Bourne – Juice

P’ierre’s sweet, featherlight beats have been key to Playboi Carti’s success, but he’s had less luck with his own rap career. Taken from a new LP, Juice makes a solid case for P’ierre Bourne getting in the booth.

Liss – Vibrations

The Copenhagen indie pop group have returned with new EP Second Vibrations is a shimmering highlight.

IQ – Road Runna ft. Smoodface

Sun-kissed dancehall from the London-based artist’s recent EP Jamaican Prince.

Lil Nas X – Rodeo ft. Cardi B

Will Lil Nas X ever top the hype of Old Town Road? Of course he won’t. But Rodeos a pretty decent effort.
