TRAVIS SCOTT – ESCAPE PLAN
Hip-hop icon Travis Scott returns with his highly anticipated track ‘Escape Plan’. Days after teasing the song during his rowdy headlining performance at New York’s Rolling Loud Festival, demand has flourished. The Houston native will be celebrating not only the release of both singles but also the first day of his third-annual Astroworld Festival, in which 100,000 people are expected to be in attendance.
NLE CHOPPA ft. POLO G – JUMPIN
When it comes to collaborating, NLE Choppa and Polo G are no strangers. In the latest adventure of the two, their new single ‘Jumpin’ sees them successfully execute a bank heist and evade police suspicion. Rapping amongst the cinematic visual, Choppa says: “Play with my cash and I’m on your ass, Like the pockets on the back of your pants.”
YAW TOG – SEI MU
Having gained fast acclaim from his debut single ‘Sore’ in September 2020, Yaw Tog returns with a brand new song titled “Sei Mu”. The track is a follow-up to his debut EP ‘Time’ and owes its prowess to the fusion of his distinctive gritty voice and dub-infused beat.
LOUIS DUNFORD – MY GENERATION
“My Generation” is a new single and video from North London singer Louis Dunford. In a focus on nostalgia, his new single is taken from his forthcoming EP and reflects on his friendships, family, and life. Often forming his musical abilities as a sonic journal, Dunford uses music as a catharsis.
