Welcome to Friday! The day you've been waiting for. Deep dive into the weekend by checking out our freshest selection of new music as we offer you the latest tracks you need in your rotation.
JUSTIN BIEBER ft. DANIEL CAESAR and GIVEON – PEACHES
As if gifting us with a brand-new album entitled ‘JUSTICE’ wasn’t enough – Canadian phenomenon Justin Bieber calls on Daniel Caesar and Giveon for the release of their fun-filled, quirky music video ‘Peaches’. Providing a west-coast, Y2K inspired feel, the Tiley-directed video pays homage to hip-hop legends Diddy and Dr Dre with the use of big fashion looks, big budgets and all-star cameos – a nod to the good ol’ golden age of hip-hop.
M1LLIONZ ft. LOTTO ASH – HOW MANY TIMES
UK Heavyweight M1llionz is back with a brand-new single featuring Birmingham-native Lotto Ash. Their joint track ‘How Many Times’ sees the duo put their exploration hats on in order to roam the streets of Jamaica. A different approach to what we’re usually exposed to from M1llionz, the TSB-produced cut is infused with hypnotic RnB vibes in which he delivers his signature skippy flow and suave repartee.
LOSKI ft. DAVIDO – NAIJA MAN
Having rounded up 2020 with impressive singles, South London rapper Loski returns debuting some flavoursome visuals for his track ‘Naija Man’ featuring Afrobeats superstar Davido. Extracted from his debut album ‘Music, Trial and Trauma: A Drill Story’, the clean-cut visual is yet another among a sunlit location – Lagos, Nigeria.
FRVRFRIDAY – TIME FOR YOU
Marking FrvrFriday’s first drop of 2021, ‘Time for You’ is the Canadian artist’s latest offering. Continuing the motion of last year’s success, the trappy, RnB single – infused with guitar specks – takes a dimmer approach than what we’re initially used to.
BUGZY MALONE – WELCOME TO THE HOOD
Manchester’s Bugzy Malone has unveiled a powerful new single titled ‘Welcome to The Hood’ featuring Emilie Sande. Taken from the north-repping rapper’s forthcoming album ‘The Resurrection’, the single arrives alongside a cinematic visual, capturing themes of loneliness, isolation and deprivation.
RV – NEW ONE (OUTRO)
RV has unveiled ‘New One (Outro)’ taken from his upcoming mixtape titled ‘Rico Vondelle’. Following up from the success of his most recent hit ‘Moonwalk Slide’ ft. BackRoad Gee and Chip (which garnered over 1.5 million streams) the Tottenham-bred rapper gears up to release more star-studded collaborations from the likes of K-Trap, Abra Cadabra, Frosty and more.
GYAKIE ft. OMAH LAY – FOREVER (REMIX)
Debuting onto the music scene back in 2019, Ghanaian artist Gyakie is born to a music-sensational family. Releasing her bubbly remix to her chart-topping single ‘Forever’, the 22-year-old has enlisted Nigeria’s next rated superstar Omah Lay to join forces with her – catapulting her track onto a whole new, unrivalled level.
JAE5 ft. SKEPTA and REMA – DIMENSION
Grammy-winner JAE5 switches up the role, from producer to artist, as he unveils a brand-new debut single and video entitled ‘Dimension’ featuring Skepta and Rema. Paying homage to Ghana, the homeland of Skepta, the culturally rich visual offering provides a peep into the West-African country’s colourful and ornate heritage.
