Rated by The Face: a weekly playlist

Dua Lipa teams up with Belgian pop star Angèle, Bree Runway enlists kindred spirit Rico Nasty and AceMoMa drop a satisfying rave explosion.

We’re in a crisis, but great music keeps coming out.

To keep up with it all, check out this playlist which we lovingly update every week. Read about last week’s additions here.

Dua Lipa & Angèle – Fever

Our fave Dua Lipa has teamed up with Belgian singer Angèle for this smooth dance pop tune. Watch the duo hit a London kebab shop for the visuals.

BENEE – Happens to Me

BENEE blew up in a way which once seemed novel but has now become traditional: TikTok. Following the virality of her Gus Dapperton collab Supalonely, the New Zealander has since collaborated with the likes of Kenny Beats, Grimes, Flo Milli and Lily Allen. Happens to Me is the opener from her forthcoming debut, Hey u x.

Bree Runway – Little Nokia (remix) ft. Rico Nasty

Bree Runway’s dropped her debut LP 2000AND4EVA, throwing in a remix of her single Little Nokia as the bonus track. Due to the track’s nu metal influence, punk rapper Rico Nasty sounds comfortably at home here.

Dutchavelli – Zero Zero

A foreboding hit from the gravelly-voiced rapper’s debut mixtape Dutch from the 5th. Read a candid interview with him here.

AceMoMa – Sky Trax

AceMoMa – the union of prolific NYC DJ/​producers AceMo and MoMa Ready – recently dropped EP3, another collaborative cocktail of potent rave flavours. Sky Trax includes satisfyingly intense bursts of jungle.

Tierra Whack – Dora

The eccentric Philly rapper returns with her first material since 2019, exuding colourful and carefree charm.

Miley Cyrus – Midnight Sky (remix) ft. Stevie Nicks

Miley’s 80s-influenced power pop single borrows melodic elements from Stevie Nicks’ single Edge of Seventeen. Now, the track has been blessed by the Fleetwood Mac legend herself.

Abra Cadabra – Spin this Coupe

Abra Cadabra arguably has one of the biggest UK rap tunes of 2020 with On Deck. Here, he follows it up with another gritty, high-intensity track. Drill on fast-forward.

TOM – Lil Fucker

Brooding, drum machine-powered scuzz from ex-Paddingtons frontman Tom Atkin.

Shelly – Natural

Shelly is Clairo’s new band, featuring her mates Josh Mehling and Noa Frances Getzug, as well as Claud, who was the first act to be signed to Phoebe Bridgers’ new label Saddest Factory. Natural is dose of gorgeous dream pop.
