SZA – “Good Days”

SZA unveiled the first music video of her latest single “Good Days,” which is comprised of fan entries that share their own take on the track. The TDE artist also added a short but sweet note with the visual, writing, “Good days is about not being sure .. not Sure hope is still a thing, not sure better is coming, not sure any of even it matters . its an acknowledgement were all in the same ugly chaotic beautiful existence . Shared energy . We’re all shattered and stretched beyond our means in all Ways. Good days is a reminder we’re all struggling find and feel A Connection. To believe everyday has the tiniest possibility to be better than the last is what It’s all about. Possibility !! A SLIVER of hope.. not even a whole lot. A reminder to OURSELVES .. that a sliver is sometimes all u need . I wanna say thank you for sharing your life w me . Your emotions , your darkness, and light. For crying and laughing and committing to being in the moment w me . It’s hard and I’m proud of you . love you beyond measure and Thank you for contributing to one of The greatest moments of my life . I never wanna stop Creating and Sharing moments w you … even if they suck …even if Good days aren’t on the horizon .. I’m honored to spend them with you… forever love ! P.S.

Gabriel Garzón-Montano x Jamila Woods -  “Someone (Armando Young Remix)”

Gabriel Garzón-Montano and Jamila Woods have teamed up for the Armando Young remix of “Someone,” a track on Garzón-Montano’s latest full-length Agüita. “I’m grateful to be able to make such beautiful music with friends. Armando is a beast and Jamila is a monster so I was in the most loving hands. I’m honored to present this ‘Someone’ remix,” the French-Colombian artist said. Woods added, “I’ve been a big fan of Gabriel for a while and it was so fun to re-make this song with him! The lyrics are so visual and vulnerable and the story of the song really resonated with me. Armando’s remix brought such a good energy and made it one of those songs that invites you to dance your feelings out.”

JPEGMAFIA - EP2!

JPEGMAFIA quickly followed up his December 2020 project EP! with the aptly-titled EP2!. Once again entirely written, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by the Flatbush-born artist, the project boasts of a more dialled back tone, with cuts like “FIX URSELF!” and “FEED HER!” hearing a calmer side of JPEGMAFIA as he sings ever so softly over a fusion of strings, synthesizers and unidentifiable noises, touching on everything from jealousy and self-doubt to the alt-right movement and the surveillance state.

Syd – “Missing Out”

A year after announcing her solo album, The Internet staple Syd dropped off her anti-Valentine’s Day ode, “Missing Out.” Despite getting fans excited for the release, she revealed in an interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music that she’s still unsure of when she’ll drop the record. “Honestly, I’m thinking about opening a body shop, like a corner garage, so I’m not sure. But I do have almost an album worth of stuff that I might finish. I don’t know. I’ve been taking it day by day,” she said. “Matt is supposed to pull up as soon and we’re supposed to start working on some new Internet tunes, so that should be fun. If they come out fire, we will drop them.”
