Rated by The Face: a weekly playlist
The best contemporary music – updated 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 updates every week. Check it out below.
Read about last week’s playlist additions here.
Buju – L’enu
2019 has been the breakthrough year for Afro-fushion artist Buju. After getting a cosign from Zlatan (a big deal in Nigeria), L’enu is a cocky demonstration of Buju’s talent.
Kanye West – Follow God
The response to Jesus is King has been – to put it politely – very mixed. But it’s hard to not feel the soulful warmth of this beat, even if you’re a non-believer.
Ghetto Sage – Häagen Dazs
Noname, Smino and Saba have joint forces for this rap supergroup. You love to see it.
Moses Boyd – Stranger Than Fiction
The London jazz drummer plays around with grime and techno on this pretty, but hard-hitting new single.
Frank Ocean – DHL
It’s always a treat when Frank raps.
