Deep dive into our freshest selection of new music this Friday as we offer you the latest tracks you need in your rotation, perfect to get you lit for the weekend.
KEHLANI ft. BRYSON TILLER – ALWAYS FOREVER
Always Forever. The two singers join forces for an on-screen romance in their latest music video directed by Kid. Taken from Bryson’s latest album Anniversary, the power ‘couple’ express sizzling chemistry through both their actions and words.
SAWEETIE ft. JHENE AIKO – BACK TO THE STREETS
Saweetie and Jhene Aiko join forces for new sassy drop ‘Back to the Streets’. Co-produced by Timbaland, the single serves as an empowering anthem bringing two of the boldest women in the industry together to remind us of our worth.
JOSIE MAN – GROW
Once in a while we need a reminder of self-care, growth, and becoming stronger. Josie Man does just this in her latest single titled ‘Grow’. Softly interlaced with meaningful lyricism, the accompanying visual compliments her enchanted vibes.
THE WEEKND – TOO LATE
The Weeknd is back with another thought-provoking visual. Continuing the flow from his prior video ‘In Your Eyes’, the video sees a beheaded version of the artist, disembodied and within a mansion. Graphic to say the least, the Cliqua-directed cut is definitely an enticing watch.
NIPAH – SAVIOUR (BE YOURS)
Nipah is back with a sensual and seductive visual. The Armand Da Silva-directed cut boasts itself as a visual masterpiece, including an exclusive performance by Nipah herself. On the pole and amidst a dance solo, Nipah garners all the ingredients needed to allure you in.
PA SALIEU – B***K
There’s no doubt in saying Salieu is the man of the moment. His latest single is his most poignant yet – B***K features exploration into Black pride and excellence. In a nod to Black History Month, PA has described the single as: “The title being censored is to highlight how throughout history parts of society have portrayed black people and culture almost like a swear word.”
The track also ensures that all proceeds from downloads will go to Black Minds Matter UK.
REJJIE SNOW ft. SNOH AALEGRA and CAM O’BI – MIRRORS
Rejjie Snow has premiered his latest music video dubbed ‘Mirrors’ featuring Snoh Aalegra and Cam O’bi. Continuing his renowned style, the Irish rapper has described the concept to HYPEBEAST as “[The video was] the world of Willy Wonka for me but on psychedelics”. Whilst the two collaborative vocals don’t make an appearance throughout the visuals, their sturdy presence remains spirited.
RICO NASTY ft. DON TOLIVER and GUCCI MANE – DON’T LIKE ME
Rico Nasty enlists Don Toliver and Gucci Mane for their latest collaborative effort ‘Don’t Like Me’. Gearing up ahead of the release of Nasty’s debut album ‘Nightmare Vacation’ introduces a new sound from the punk-rock princess. Emphasised by Toliver and Mane, the track serves as the next official single taken from the project.
