Welcome to another weekly installment of HYPEBEAST SOUNDS, our ongoing playlist that rotates through 50 of our editors’ favorite songs throughout the music world. This week is highlighted by some major new updates like Octavian‘s new track “Famous” featuring Gunna and SAINt JHN ahead of his upcoming debut album. Disclosure‘s first record in five years, Sevdaliza‘s own outstanding genre-defying album and a Thundercat remix with friends Guapdad 4000 and Smino.

Octavian‘s debut studio album is on its way, set to release before the end of 2020 via Black Butter/RCA Records. On “Famous,” Octavian maneuvers through the negative aspects of his ever-growing fame and looks to Gunna and SAINt JHN to help paint that picture following their respective meteoric rises to superstardom. “The concept of “Fame” should be connected to the celebration of one’s achievements; unfortunately, nowadays it is the glamorization of unthought-about entertainment,” he said in a press statement.

After five long years, Disclosure has finally dropped off their latest full-length album ENERGY. GRAMMY-nominated producing duo and brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence tap a number of high-profile guests throughout the 20 tracks, presented here as a deluxe version right out of the gate. The album launch also comes with a new music video for “Birthday” featuring Syd and Kehlani. The star-studded tracklist that also taps frequent collaborator Khalid for “Know Your Worth”, slowthai and Aminé for “My High” and rising a Malian singer-songwriter Fatoumata Diawara for “Douha (Mali Mali).” ENERGY also features guest verses from Mick Jenkins, Channel Tres, Common and Kelis.

It’s been hard to forget Thundercat’s original music video for his “Dragonball Durag” single in which he searches for lo-fi love in a visual directed by friend and collaborator Zack Fox. The “Dragonball Durag” Remix is almost as memorable thanks to stellar guest spots from Guapdad 4000 and Smino. Smino expertly half-raps half-croons about love, being introduced and subsequently apologetic to his new flame’s mother and more. Guapdad raps about his GRAMMY-ensemble (in which he wore a durag so long that it dragged on the floor).

Other offerings include A$AP Ferg and Lil Wayne, Big Sean and Nipsey Hussle and plenty more. Stream the latest installment below and check out our new rundown of the week’s Best New Tracks.
