HEADIE ONE ft. YOUNG T AND BUGSEY – PRINCESS CUTS
Young T and Bugsey link up with Headie One for dazzling collaboration ‘Princess Cuts’. Pervading the hook with a melodic flow, Young T glides against the IO and TSB-produced track. Taken from Headie One’s highly anticipated offering ‘EDNA’, the trio offers nothing but good vibes throughout the visuals. Did someone say an all-white party?
TRAVIS SCOTT, M.I.A and YOUNG THUG ft. FUTURE – FRANCHISE (REMIX)
Travis Scott taps Future for the official remix of his number one single ‘Franchise’, featuring M.I.A and Young Thug. Laying down a fresh verse, the Atlanta-bred rapper elevates the track into a hypnotic bliss.
WSTRN ft. SAI SO – NEVER FIND / ARMAGEDDON
West London collective WSTRN return with single ‘Never find / Armageddon’ featuring Sai So. With no surprise, hook emperor Haile infuses the snare-heavy instrumental with his harmonious vocals before intercepted by fellow group members Akelle and Louis. Offering two for the price of one, the trio also link up with musical artist Sai So to transition into the back-to-back flow of rap in their second track ‘Armageddon’
DREAMER BOY – CRY BABY
Dreamer Boy is back posing sweet, nostalgia throughout his latest offering ‘Cry Baby’. Amidst glittery, psychedelia, the visuals for the track share the tales of Dreamer Boy’s youth, heavily inspired by David Bowie. It’s a trip into a retro-infused, fantasy.
OFB BANDOKAY & DOUBLE LZ ft. ABRACADABRA – BLM
North London artists Bandokay and Double Lz enlist fellow rapper Abracadabra to pay tribute to Black Lives Matter in their latest single. In tribute to the killing of Bandokay’s father, Mark Duggan, the track also pays homage to those who have lost their life due to racism and the ongoing fight against police brutality.
DUTCHAVELLI ft. MILLIONZ – COOL WITH ME
The man of the moment Dutchavelli joins forces with Millionz for menacing collaboration ‘Cool With Me’. The music, considered as a lyrically dense take on British rap genres sees the duo go back and forth above a jittery, drill instrumental.
KRANIUM – THROUGH THE WINDOW
Infused with shrewd wordplay and raw energy, Dancehall superstar Kranium releases his brand new single ‘Through the Window’. Considered as a musical ‘soap opera’, the Dunwell-produced track is just one of many forthcoming releases courtesy of the versatile wordsmith.
SKEPTA ft. GHETTS – IC3
Grime troupers Skepta and Ghetts join forces for their fiery new single ‘IC3’. Trading verses on the track, the two lyrically express their experiences as black men and innovators. Produced by TenBillion Dreams, their new collaborative single proves their everlasting capability to stay on top.
