D DOUBLE E ft. KANO – TELL ME A TING

BIG SEAN – HARDER THAN MY DEMONS
Rapper Big Sean makes a return with ‘Harder than my demons’, taken from his newly released, feature-filled album ‘Detroit 2’. Stretched across 21 songs, track number 7 features a piece of telling music along with softly assisted vocals from frequent collaborator Justin Bieber.
G-EAZY ft. MULATTO – DOWN
Oakland-native G-Eazy joins Mulatto for a star-studded filmic video for song ‘Down’. Directed by Mike Marasco, the music video draws inspiration from the 1999 comedy Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo. Featuring cameos from Rob Schneider, Jordyn Woods, Flo Milli and Saucy Santana.
JAWSH 685 ft. TYGA and LAUV – SWEET AND SOUR
Tyga and Lauv have teamed up with New Zealand-born producer Jawsh 685 for their new track ‘Sweet and Sour’. Lacing together sugar-coated synths with punchy percussion, it sure is ‘Sweet and Sour’ to close off the summery season.
FRISCO ft. SKEPTA, JAMMER, JME and SHORTY – RED CARD
Grime heavyweights Boy Better Know return for a prevailing collaboration dubbed ‘Red Card’. Taken from Frisco’s forthcoming album ‘The Familiar Stranger’ due for release on the 16th of October. Shorty, JME, Jammer and Frisco all take turns to shell down some lyrics over the Trooh Hippi-produced cut.
SZA ft. TY DOLLA $IGN – HIT DIFFERENT
I guess things ‘Hit Different’ when you’re the princess of contemporary RnB. SZA has finally made a return with a new single that contemplates love and relationships. Featuring TY DOLLA $IGN, the video also marks SZA’s first time solo-directing the visuals.
BRING ME THE HORIZON ft. YUNGBLUD – OBEY
Two-time Grammy-nominated band Bring Me the Horizon have enlisted fellow Brit YUNGBLUD for new single ‘Obey’. The video, directed by the band’s frontman Oliver Sykes, shows the band and YUNGBLUD battle it out as robots until the unexpected happens. Check It out!
JALLE – HEY
British singer Jalle has released his record ‘Hey’. Produced by British duo The Nocturns, the track explained by Jalle is about getting drunk or high and calling that person you shouldn’t. Slowly establishing himself as an alt-pop powerhouse, the story throughout the song speaks for itself.
NATHAN DAWE ft. KSI, BIG ZUU, and WINDOW KID – LIGHTER (S-X REMIX)
Nathan Dawe has released his new remix by S-X featuring fast-rising grime MC Big Zuu and Nottingham-based artist Window KID. The track by Dawe follows up from the release of the summer anthem titled Lighter, featuring online-sensation KSI.
BRYSON TILLER – INHALE
Bryson Tiller has made his long-awaited return. Coming back with a bang, his latest lyrical offering is ‘Inhale’ – a 90’s inspired, percussion-driven, soulful piece of art. Accompanied by dark, faded visuals, the backdrop of liquefying clocks adds to the overall context. Bryson Tiller has reported plans of dropping a full-length album in Autumn of 2020.
