Read about last week’s playlist additions here.


Rosalía – Millionària

The first half of the contemporary flamenco star’s two-track release Fucking Money Man. For this tongue-in-cheek tune, Rosalía sings about securing the bag in Catalan.

Headie One – Back to Basics ft. Skepta

Two Tottenham heavyweights unite. One’s a rising star from the UK drill scene, the other grime veteran, and their styles merge smoothly. Check out The Face’s behind-the-scenes photos of the music video here.

DJ Python – Be Si To

The New York club producer has crafted a beautiful sound described as deep reggaeton”.

Bad Gyal – Santa Maria ft. Busy Signal

After working with leftfield producers for last year’s mixtape Worldwide Angel, Barcelona’s Bad Gyal has signed a major label deal and shared this radio-ready banger with Jamaican dancehall artist Busy Signal.

Dominic Fike – Phone Numbers

Kenny Beats has made his name making hard-hitting rap tracks for the likes of Rico Nasty, Vince Staples and JPEGMAFIA – here he showcases his sunny pop production for rising Florida heartthrob Dominic Fike.

03 Greedo and Travis Barker – Cellout

Last year, the unique Cali rapper 03 Greedo was incarcerated just as he was beginning to blow up, and he’s continued to drop material from behind bars. Check out the airy lead track from his new EP with blink-182’s drummer Travis Barker.

Spike Fuck – Body by Crystal

After surviving some serious life episodes, the Melbourne artist has returned with a stunning song which blends country, stadium rock and pop-punk.
