WIZKID ft. TEMS and JUSTIN BIEBER – ESSENCE (OFFICIAL REMIX)
Call me bias, but this is the song of the summer – or even the year. With their infectious track, ‘Essence’, off of Wizkid’s Made in Lagos album, Wizkid and Tems struck gold back in October 2020. Since then, its chart trajectory has only increased after debuting on Billboard Hot 100 Charts and currently stands at no. 52. With hopes of boosting the level slightly, the Nigerian power duo enlist none other than Canadian sensation Justin Bieber to assist on the song’s silky-smooth official remix.
DJ SNAKE ft. RICK ROSS and RICH BRIAN – RUN IT
A new track titled “Run It” featuring Rick Ross and Rich Brian was unveiled by multi-platinum producer DJ Snake. The single, which follows recent boundary-pushing tracks “You Are My High” and “Ring The Alarm” with Malaa, comes from Marvel Studios’ upcoming film “Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings”.
KARA MARNI – 2ND NATURE
Newly-minted London-based Kara Marni has released her first single ‘2nd Nature’ and announced her forthcoming EP, ‘State of Mine’. With its fearlessness, sensuality, and feel-good formula, “2nd Nature” marks the beginning of a new era and attitude for Kara. Self-written, the track plays as an anthem about being completely enmeshed with a lover and wanting to belong to them.
J GRREY ft. FINN ASKEW – LAVISH
J Grrey returns with a brand new single, ‘Lavish’, notably the artist’s first collaboration. Tapping Somerset-hailing and VEVO DSCVR artist Finn Askew, ‘Lavish’ addresses the tired and emotionally exhausted by encouraging them to relax and relish in the good things in life. Produced by Earl Saga, the beat serves as a warm and hopeful backdrop to J’s introspective and agile songwriting.
JENEVIEVE – RESUME
An emerging singer who blends assertiveness with coyness, Jeneiveve flows smoothly on her latest single, “Résumé.” Making her failing ‘situationship’ sound almost pleasurable, the artist pivots through the heartbreak with charm, lacing the track with exquisite vocals and 80s pop synths throughout each clever bar.
ISIAH RASHAD ft. LIL UZI VERT – FROM THE GARDEN
In celebration of his newly released album, internationally acclaimed artist Isaiah Rashad has premiered his new music video for the explosive song “From The Garden” featuring Lil Uzi Vert. The Omar Jones-directed clip exemplifies the high level of visual narrative that has been evident in his previous work. A striking visual comprised of aerial shots and kaleidoscopic effects allows Rashad to pull it out of the bag, once again.
M’WAY – WE DID
‘We Did’ is the new track and video from Nottingham rapper M’Way. In addition to receiving support from industry tastemakers, the latest single features pure lyricism, high-quality production and a catchy syncopated beat. Listed as one of Tiffany Calver’s Street Heat: Class of 2021, M’Way sits alongside the likes of Meekz, Central Cee, M1llionz, Ardee, BackRoad Gee and Enny.
SANTINO LE SAINT – SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
Santino Le Saint releases the visuals for his new song ‘Sleepless Nights’. Throughout the introspective song, Santino battles his demons through honest lyrics that portray his struggle, self-doubt and pain. By capturing the feeling of being stuck inside one’s own head, FP Visions’ darkly shot video cuts through the surface and reflects the rawness of his emotions.
