Rated by The Face: a weekly playlist

Headie One and Burna Boy go pop punk, Dua Lipa drops bonus bangers and slowthai gets vexed.

Check out this playlist which we lovingly update every week.

Listen on Spotify and read about last week’s additions here.

Headie One – Siberia ft. Burna Boy

Headie One and Burna Boy on pop-punk production? We didn’t see this one coming, but it works.

Dua Lipa – We’re Good

The lead single from The Moonlight Edition of Future Nostalgia, which gives you an excuse to keep rinsing this album and not feel guilty about it.


A UK newcomer pays tribute to the slick 90s R&B era that’s so close to his heart.

Teezo Touchdown – Technically

A breezy ballad about horniness and heartache from the rising Texan eccentric.

Claud – Guard Down

The Phoebe Bridgers-backed artist wrote Guard Down while trying to repress their feelings after finding out their crush was seeing someone else. An emotional release arrives via a pitch-shifted rap verse in the second half of the track.

Reggie – Geng Geng ft. City Boy, JayBahd, Okenneth & Sean Lifer

If you’re not yet familiar with Ghana’s asaaka movement, then you’ll need to catch up, because this Kumasi-based collective is on a winning streak.

slowthai – Vex

One of the gnarliest tunes from Ty’s two-sided sophomore album.
