Rated by The Face: a weekly playlist

Featuring rising Nigerian artist Tems, Atlanta alt-country strummer Faye Webster and the Sie7etr3 crew’s co-leader Chucky73.

We’re in a crisis, but great music keeps coming out.

To keep up with it all, check out this playlist which we lovingly update every week. Read about last week’s additions here.

Tems – Damages

Tems packed in her job as a digital marketer two years ago, and with a string of four singles, the Nigerian singer and producer have been building a fanbase who proudly call themselves Rebel Gang. Damages, the heart-on-sleeve single from Tems’ forthcoming EP For Broken Ears – should earn the gang some new recruits.

Faye Webster – Better Distractions

Atlanta indie-country artist Faye Webster’s got one for the lovestruck millennials out there: Got two friends that I could see, but they got two jobs and a baby /​I just wanna see you.”

M Huncho & Nafe Smallz – 5AM

Two titans of UK rap hooks have teamed up for a blockbuster album called DNA, and this is the first taste.

Flohio – Unveiled

The title track from Flohio’s forthcoming mixtape, featuring a purring beat by Take a Day Trip – the US duo you’ll know by their hits with Sheck Wes, Travis Scott and Lil Nas X.

Chucky73 & Ñengo Flow – Palos

Next month Chucky73 – co-frontman of the Domincan-Bronx based rap crew Sie7etr3 – drops his debut album De Chiquito Siempre Cabezu. Testament to their rise in 2020, Palos recruits Puerto Rican reggaeton star Ñengo Flow.
