Doechii - she / her / black bitch

Doechii drops his first EP for Top Dawg Entertainment, she / her / black bitch. The five-track EP features production from Kal Banx, Hit-Boy, Bankroll Got It and Devin Malik and is executive produced by Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith and Anthony “Moosa” Tiffith Jr. “Many times I’ve been referred to as a “bitch” as a way to gaslight me out of certain spaces, something I think many people can relate to in one way or another,” she said in a statement. “Lots of people will call you various names for doing something differently.” She continued, “So I decided to take ownership of the ‘black bitch’ and title my EP she/ her/ black bitch and reclaim that motherf***ing power. So if you’ve ever been put down for being yourself, just remember you’re powerful and unapologetic- these songs are for you.”

Madonna x Saucy Santana – “Material Gworrllllllll!”

Madonna and Saucy Santana join forces for “Material Gworrllllllll!” — a remix of the latter’s own viral track “Material Girl,” which was also inspired by Madonna’s original hit. The single arrives just weeks before Madonna’s upcoming 50-track compilation album FINALLY ENOUGH LOVE: 50 NUMBER ONES, which is curated by the artist herself and celebrates her achievement of becoming the first and only recording artist to have 50 No. 1 hits on any Billboard chart.

Son Little – “deeper / stoned love”

Son Little is set to release his upcoming album Like Neptune on September 9 and shares the record’s two lead singles, “deeper” and “stoned love.” The project was created in a cabin overlooking the Delaware River in upstate NY and is billed as “an open and vulnerable portrayal of unbridled joy and self-acceptance.”

REASON x The Game – “Impalas & Hydraulics”

REASON teams up with The Game for his newest single “Impalas & Hydraulics.” Complete with G-funk-inspired synths and chunky drums, the cut is an ode to the West Coast’s rich rap history while maintaining REASON’s own sound. “This song is the west coast that I grew in. Everything that encompasses that, low riders, dickies, vatos, I grew up in that,” says Reason. “Game was the perfect person to add because when I think of that time he encompassed all of those things! He heard it and immediately knew what direction to go and it fit,” he said in a statement.

Duke Deuce x Glorilla x Quavo – “Just Say That (Remix)”

Quavo helps out Duke Deuce and Glorilla for a remix of “Just Say That.” The cut originally appeared on the Memphis crunkstar’s sophomore studio album CRUNKSTAR, which followed 2021’s Duke Nukem.
