Last week, we spotlighted new releases from Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs, Madlib, Mozzy and more. For this week’s edition of our Best New Tracks series, we’re bringing attention to new deliveries from Audrey, Kano, Tainy, Lightshow, Towkio, Ramriddlz, Lizzo and DaBaby.
Audrey – “TIME”
Korean-American R&B vocalist, Audrey, shared her latest release, “Time” alongside the official music video. The mesmerizing visual follows Audrey on a journey through the streets of Hollywood while having different interactions with would-be’s and faded stars.
Audrey explains, “’Time’ is a foster home for imaginary kids or people – a holding place for souls that went through life procrastinating and holding out on their dreams.” She adds, “I want to see female artists lead creatively, so working with Emma was such a privilege.”
Kano – “Pan Fried”
Kano releases “Pan Fried,” – a brand new track taken from the forthcoming LP Hoodies All Summer that drops on Aug. 30 via Parlophone/Atlantic Records. The new single follows the release of “Trouble” and “Class Of Deja,” which was accompanied by a compelling short film.
Hoodies All Summer is the sixth studio album from Kano, and his first release since 2016’s acclaimed Mercury-nominated Made In The Manor. Produced by Blue May and Jodi Milliner, the 10-track album sees Kano explore a more minimal – yet still uniquely British – sound which brings his lyrical prowess to the fore.
Tainy featuring Anuel AA and Ozuna – “Adicto”
Tainy taps Anuel AA and Ozuna for his latest single, “Adicto” out now on Interscope Records / Neon 16. The Zak Facts directed video comes just in time for cuffing season, highlighting the trios trysts with love.
Lizzo featuring DaBaby – “Truth Hurts” Remix
