Drake - Scary Hours 2

Ahead of the release of his delayed Certified Lover Boy album, Drake dropped a new EP entitled Scary Hours 2. The three-track project features guest verses from Rick Ross and Lil Baby, and will hopefully tide some fans over until the upcoming album’s release — which DJ Akademiks reported to be before April 2021.

JAHMED - ARMANI

JAHMED has dropped off his sophomore EP, ARMANI. The nine-track project hears sharp lyricism and high-energy beats from the West Coast rapper, who describes the EP as a shining light during dark times. “ARMANI is a world. ARMANI is love. ARMANI is betrayal. ARMANI is resentment,” he said in a statement. “ARMANI is the current state of the world, how it made me feel, and how I overcame it. ARMANI is defeating self doubt. ARMANI is a process towards gaining clarity. ARMANI is family. ARMANI is finding yourself. ARMANI is redemption.”

AJ Tracey – “Anxious”

AJ Tracey is back with “Anxious” — his first single in over a year. Produced by Remedee, the track also arrives with an accompanying music video that shows the British rapper driving around in fancy cars, checking out some pricey jewelry and enjoying the view from the top of a skyscraper.

Japanese Breakfast - ”Be Sweet”

Japanese Breakfast has debuted “Be Sweet,” a new single from her upcoming album Jubilee. Michelle Zauner took inspiration from ’80s pop for the track, saying, “After spending the last five years writing about grief, I wanted our follow up to be about joy. For me, a third record should feel bombastic and so I wanted to pull out all the stops for this one. I wrote ‘Be Sweet’ with Jack Tatum from Wild Nothing a few years ago. I’ve been holding onto it for so long and am so excited to finally put it out there.”

Mndsgn - ”Hope You’re Doin’ Better”

Stones Throw Records signee Mndsgn has made his return with the new single “Hope You’re Doin’ Better,” which is set to appear on his next album Rare Pleasure. The upcoming project first came to fruition in 2018 and promises to showcase the artist’s evolution from a beatmaker to vocalist, songwriter and arranger.

Rostam - ”4Runner”

Rostam has announced a June 4 release for his upcoming album Changephobia, along with the premiere of the new single “4Runner.” In a statement, the Iranian-American artist revealed that the song “captures the intimate thrill of a road trip with someone special,” adding, “A 12-string acoustic guitar and booming percussion match the sunshine and breeze of a drive across the West Coast, a queer love story unfolding alongside it. Isolated from the outside by car doors and a blaring stereo, they experience the euphoric aura of the sun and wind from within a world that is theirs alone.”

Jonathan Richetts - ”ENEMY”

With his upcoming project Wild Boy set to drop this year, Jonathan Richetts debuted a visual for his latest single “ENEMY.” Directed by Sage Anderson, the accompanying music video sees the artist portraying three different characters that pay tribute to the different stages in his life and his creative journey. Not only does this foreshadow the release of Wild Boy, but also a trilogy of projects that remain under wraps.
