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.
