We’ve been swimming in new music all week and this week, we’ve rounded up a list of songs that have been on replay and in heavy rotation.
From Beyonceé to Common, this week’s list is sure to include something for everyone. Take a listen below.
Beyoncé – “Spirit”
Earlier this week, Beyoncé released “Spirit,” a new single from the live-action remake of The Lion King. The song appears on the film’s new soundtrack, which features classics from the movie sung by stars Donald Glover, JD McCrary, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and more.
AUGUST 08 ft. Goldlink – “Simple Pleasures”
AUGUST 08 has re-released his hit single “Simple Pleasures,” this time recruiting Goldlink for a little help. The breakout artist who has penned songs for Chance The Rapper, Justin Bieber, DJ Khaled, and more, is stepping in front of the mic and proving he can hold his own.
Gallant – “Crimes”
Gallant premiere new single “Crimes” earlier this week, stopping by Apple Music’s Beats 1 to speak with host Zane Lowe about the new song. The singer is expected to return later this year with a new album, a follow-up to 2016’s Ology.
DVS – “In Between”
“In Between” is just one of two songs shared recently by the Toronto duo. The pair dropped “Miss Me?” alongside “In Between,” their first new songs since 2017.
Eve ft. Konshens – “Reload”
Eve is back! The rapper returned this week with her first single in six years, “Reload.” Featuring Jamaican artist Konshens, the single is a lively reggae-inspired song for summer.
Common ft. Vince Staples – “Hercules”
Common has shared a new single off of his forthcoming solo LP, Let Love. Teaming up with Vince Staples and Swizz Beatz, the video for “Hercules” sees the rapper acting as a hero during a convenience store robbery.
Sampa The Great – “OMG”
Sampa The Great is coming with a new album, but to hold us over she’s released “OMG.” Sharing a video shot between South Africa and Botswana and directed by Sanjay De Silva, the rapper stated, “I personally feel that people on the continent have a duty to our family in the diaspora, to re-teach our culture, language, spirituality, ways and return our peeps to ourselves. To me ‘OMG’ sounds like the songs we heard in our childhood. It’s broadly about flexing your culture! Loving where you’re from and even being shocked at the realization of not knowing how dope it is to be ‘who you are.'”
