This august long weekend has been blessed. For this week’s New Music Friday we have a stacked lineup of new releases from Travis Scott, YG, Jhene Aiko, H.E.R, NVTE, etc. Check out below on what you should listen to!
First up, after 2 years of teasing this album, Travis Scott finally releases Astroworld. Laced with 17 tracks featuring Drake, Frank Ocean, this album is seriously something worth the wait. (i’m hearing it as i write this and let me say this album is pureeeee fire please dont sleep on this!!!) Prior to the release, Travis has released merch for the album release with having something new everyday and if you didn’t get the chance to cop your merch, you have less than 24 hours left for round two on his official shop.
If you guys don’t know NVTE, you are forsure sleeping. With his new single produced by Slint, Day Ones brings that fire to the table. With the catchy hook and the addictive beat, make sure to check out his new single along with his other bangers down below. I highly recommend listening to VVS (which is one of my personal favourites he went in) as well as following his Instagram for more updates of feature releases. :
Next up, YG releases his third studio album STAY DANGEROUS and let me tell you, I have been waiting for new YG music for some time. With his hit song Big Bank with 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj and Big Sean, YG wasn’t done bringing heat to the table. Too Cocky has been a song i’ve been waiting on as well and the studio version of this song is mad fire. YG is someone definitely
someone I want to hear live. Check out the album below :
Jhene Aiko teams up with YG to bring the Never Call Me remix and personally, that was one of my favourite songs off her Trip album and YG killed his verse in this remix. With the original version featuring west coast icon Kurupt, the meditative track has the vocal tunes and beat produced by Cashmere Cat, you don’t want to miss out on listening to this remix, check it out here :
BAKA NOT NICE RELEASED 4MILLI DO I HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING ELSE?! Junior High is the hardest song off the album, and you all should know Live Up To My Name and Money in The Bank but DON’T SLEEP ON BAKA! :
This song is about to make you break up with yourself. With H.E.R teaming up with Bryson Tiller (which is something we have all been waiting on) Could’ve Been is such a smooth track as well as the beat blending in with their voices perfectly. Check out the song as well as her new 6 laced track EP below :
With Kirko Bangz’ song Work Sumn, he calls out Tory Lanez and Jacquees for the remix and this song has been on repeat all day long. Personally love it when Tory Lanez and Jacquees team up with either each other or with other artists but they really did kill this track. Check out the song below :
That’s it for this week’s NMF, make sure to check out my Spotify playlists down below as well as follow the blog for more updates every friday on new music for your headtop with new music updated everyday :
