Post Malone – “Motley Crew”

Post Malone is celebrating his 26th birthday with a gift to fans — a brand new single entitled “Motley Crew.” The cut is produced by DA Got That Dope and arrives with a star-studded music video helmed by Lyrical Lemonade’s Cole Bennett, which sees Posty as a race car driver celebrating his win with friends like Big Sean, Ty Dolla $ign, Tommy Lee of Motley Crue and more.

Bas x J. Cole x Lil Tjay – “The Jackie”

Bas joined forces with J. Cole and Lil Tjay for the new cut, “The Jackie.” Billed as a “summer anthem” by Dreamville, the track lives up to the hype with a catchy chorus courtesy of J. Cole, stellar production from T-Minus and strong bars from Lil Tjay and Bas.

IDK - USEE4YOURSELF

IDK unveiled his stunning studio album USEE4YOURSELF with appearances from Young Thug, Offset, Westside Gunn, Jay Electronica, the late MF DOOM, Lucky Day and more. “Yes DOOM had more bars, but we like it better as a bridge/hook. He cleared it one month before he passed,” he wrote on Twitter. “We don’t look at it as a feature. We look at it’s as an appearance. Maybe we’ll hear the full thing someday. RIP brother & love you forever.”

Charlotte Day Wilson - ALPHA

Charlotte Day Wilson finally dropped off her debut studio album, ALPHA. “I got more comfortable in my ability to just really spell out who I’m singing about,” she told Apple Music. “I didn’t really feel like I needed to be mysterious anymore. Not that I’m trying to do anything revolutionary by being a woman singing about women—that’s a narrative that should be normalised. I just want to make the music that I want to hear.”

Adekunle Gold x Lucky Daye – “Sinner”

Nigeria’s Adekunle Gold teamed up with Lucky Daye for their new collab, “Sinner.” The three-minute cut hears the highlife singer and R&B artist take inspiration from the tragic story of King David and Bathsheba, and will hopefully be part of Gold’s Afro Pop Vol. 1 followup.

Arlo Parks – “Too Good”

Arlo Parks is revisiting her stunning debut album Collapsed In Sunbeams with an accompanying music video for “Too Good.” “I did this one with Paul [Epworth] in one of our first days of sessions,” the BRIT Award winner said in a statement. “I showed him all the music that I was obsessed with at the time, from ’70s Zambian psychedelic rock to MF DOOM and the hip-hop that I love via Tame Impala and big ’90s throwback pop by TLC. From there, it was a whirlwind. Paul started playing this drumbeat, and then I was just running around for ages singing into mics and going off to do stuff on the guitar. I love some of the little details, like the bump on someone’s wrist and getting to name-drop Thom Yorke. It feels truly me.”

Jungle x Bas – “Romeo”

Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland — best known as the British producer duo Jungle — enlisted the help of Dreamville’s Bas for the new cut, “Romeo.” The collab is set to appear on the group’s forthcoming record Loving in Stereo and was born from a friendship made during New York’s Greatest Day Ever festival. “We’d never had a featured artist on a record before but Bas is part of the journey of this album and so it just had to make the cut,” J said in a statement.
