By October 8, 2021Music

Once more it is that time... This Friday, we offer you the latest music you need in your rotation as we offer you our freshest selection of new songs. Happy Weekend!

YUNG BLEU ft. DAVIDO – UNFORGIVING

Following his recent win as BET’s Best New Hip Hop Artist, Yung Bleu returns with a visual set to match his nostalgic hit “Unforgiving” featuring Davido. With a video shot in Lagos, Nigeria, Yung Bleu delves into a vintage sense of nostalgia through his standout lyricism and stories about falling in love with a childhood friend, complimented with infectious adlibs from Nigerian favourite Davido.

SNOWY – SEZZIN

On his highly dynamic joint ‘Sezzin’, Nottingham-bred MC Snowy has teamed up with Jack Dat and Frost. A grime classic sound is born from the charismatic artist’s powerful lyricism and complex flows. Having created his own sound, over the years his music has been featured by publications such as Rinse FM and DJ Mag.

LEVI – STRONGBACK

 

Rising London-based MC and singer-songwriter LEVi has released his brand-new single titled ‘Strongback’. The single marks the continuation of LEVi’s exploration into Dancehall-inspired rap and hip-hop, as he leans into his feelings, dedicating the dynamic track to love, good vibes and community. Compelled to write constantly, LEVi is a compulsive songwriter, thus besides writing for his own music, he also works with a number of talented artists.

WSTRN – PROFESSIONAL LOVE

Known for fusing the sounds of the black diaspora to create their own signature sound, WSTRN has released its latest single ‘Professional Love’, produced by iO and PRGRSHN. The track is backed by smooth brassy riffs, throughout which the trio speaks about their female love interests.

NOIZU ft. DISCIPLES and MOYA – CATCH MY LOVE

 

Having emerged on the scene back in 2017, Noizu has come a long way since his breakthrough debut with Lasers that appeared on Chris Lake’s Howsla EP. His latest single ‘Catch My Love’, is in collaboration with platinum-selling UK trio Disciples and MOYA.

V9 – CHANGE

V9 has released a brand-new track titled ‘Change’ accompanied by a bespoke piece of art directed by Kevin Hudson. Unveiling some cinematic visuals that shed new light on V9’s unique mindset, V9 continues to play on popular culture references, re-enacting the role of Jim Carey’s iconic 1990s film character, The Mask.

CLAVISH – FASHION WEEK FREESTYLE

 

Among the “21 UK Rappers to Watch in 2021”, according to Complex, North London rapper Clavish returns with a new track titled ‘Fashion Week Freestyle’. Returning to the soundwaves after the incredible success of his last release ‘One of a Kind’, Fashion Week Freestyle builds on the accomplishments of the artist thus far.

WALE ft. J COLE – POKE IT OUT

 

Having just released their electric track ‘Poke it Out,’ D.C. rapper Wale and J Cole have provided a stunning visual accompaniment to their track that shows off city joyrides and bonfires on the lakeside. This is the first time the duo has collaborated since their 2018 freestyle ‘My Boy’ and uses the signature electric bass from Q-Tips ‘Vivrant thing’ to pay homage to the 1999 hit.
