Post Malone – “Mourning”

Post Malone preps the release of his upcoming album Austin with its second single, “Mourning.” The emotional offering is a deep cut for Posty, as he becomes vulnerable and opens up about his personal struggles such as so-called “friends,” the whirlwind of fame, a lack of genuine connections and being unable to speak to anybody about what he’s going through.

Wallice – “Loser at Best”

Hypebeast Best Rising Artist honoree Wallice shares her new single “Loser at Best,” which is set to appear on her upcoming EP Mr Big Shot. “I started this song last May while on a writing trip in London. I would say this song is a bit of a love song to my boyfriend. We have been together for 8 years, but I was missing him at the time he was home and I was gone for a bit, and we started off as friends back in high school. This song is about wanted to feel needed and being intoxicated by love,” she said in a statement.
