Bella Shmurda – Party Next Door

This is the time of our lives, I hope you’re feeling alive… You’re free to join me to party, from sundown to sunrise,” sings Bella Shmurda on this feel-good Afrobeats banger, as if pitching to soundtrack better times that could be around the corner.

PinkPantheress – Passion

The 20-year-old viral star follows up her TikTok hit Break it Off, going for featherlight, nostalgic drum n’ bass vibes once again.

Brent Fayiaz – Wasting Time ft. Drake

There’s an argument to be made that Brent Faiyaz is one of the best singers in contemporary music, and so his top tier position alongside Drake and The Neptunes here is well-deserved.

dvsn & Ty Dolla $ign – I Believed It ft. Mac Miller

The R&B stars are uniting for an album to released via OVO, and this sparkling lead single is blessed with guest vocals from the late Mac Miller.

Blanco – Magneto

Blanco emerged with the once-notorious, pioneering UK drill crew Harlem Spartans in the mid 2010s, and over the last couple of years he’s since sustained a steady solo career. Magneto reminds us of his lyrical prowess ahead of his new mixtape City of God.

Shygirl – DBE ft. slowthai

A filthy, club-destined rap banger which sounds like it was recorded in hell.
