For his fourth single of the year, rising Nigerian star Rema explores the recent #EndSARS movement in mind.

Chlobocop – It’sNotOver

The Glasgow rapper switches it up with this pensive, slow-burning grunge track.

Avalon Emerson – Rotting Hills

DJ/​producer Avalon Emerson is leading her new EP with this poignant techno tune, which initially appeared on her instalment of the DJ-Kicks series this year.

The Weeknd – Blinding Lights (remix) ft. Rosalía

Abel dropped the remix with the former Face cover star to celebrate the one year anniversary of his record smashing hit.

Odunsi (The Engine) – Fuji 5000

One of most distinctive artists on the Nigerian scene, the producer/rapper’s new single blends English and Yoruba lyrics over a trap beat that could soundtrack a sci-fi film.

Mr Eazi – Lento ft. J Balvin

Eazi is the godfather of banku – a blend of Ghanian highlife music and Nigerian Afropop. On Lento, J Balvin throws some reggaeton into the mix.

Lil Baby – Errbody

One of the two tracks the Atlanta rapper dropped to celebrate his 26th birthday, Errbody showcases a fluid flow Lil Baby has perfected which was once dismissed as mumble rap”.

Rico Nasty – STFU

Another gnarly punk-rap track from Rico’s album Nightmare Vacation, this one in collaboration with Take a Daytrip – the production duo you’ll know by hits like Sheck Wes’s Mo Bamba and The Scotts by Travis Scott and Kid Cudi.
