As the week in music comes to a close, Hypebeast has rounded up the best projects for the latest installment of Best New Tracks.

This week’s lineup is led by Cordae, Kali Uchis with El Alfa and JT of City Girls and Doja Cat, who each dropped the singles “Make Up Your Mind, “Muñekita” and “Paint The Town Red.” Also joining this selection are By Storm f.k.a. Injury Reserve and Sandflower, plus collaborations  from MAETA with The Free Nationals and Giggs with Diddy.

Doja Cat – “Paint The Town Red”

Doja Cat follows up June’s “Attention” with another stellar single, “Paint The Town Red.” The cut features production from Earl on the Beat with an accompanying music video helmed by Nina McNeely, and its visual is based around three paintings that Doja Cat herself designed, with each one of the scenes serving as a recreation of the paintings.

Injury Reserve/By Storm – “Bye Storm/Double Trio”

Injury Reserve shares their final piece of music together in the form of “Bye Storm,” which appeared on their 2021 album By The Time I Get to Phoenix, but is also introducing the new group By Storm and their debut single “Double Trio.” The visual for “Bye Storm,” helmed by Parker Corey, memorializes their fallen brother Steppa J. Groggs. “To respect the specificity of all three of us as Injury Reserve, we have decided not to make new music under this name. Nathaniel and Parker have continued working together and plan to release under By Storm as a hand off from our work within Injury Reserve,” the group shares in a statement.
