- There are thousands of bees on Big Sean, I think? Anyway… The Detroit hometown hero links with superproducer Hit-Boy for the resounding “What A Life,” which is a reasonable thing to say when you consider all the bees.
- Dua Saleh and Chester Watson team up for “pearls.” The CROSSOVER standout plays like a walk through Dua’s mind. Their poppy tones are steeped in a rich coat of paint.
- Hailing from West London, collective WSTRN has been capturing audiences across the globe since their 2015 debut. They connect with Jamaican singer Lila Iké for some easy listening in “Never Leave.”
- Bubbling East Atlanta alien Ola Runt returns with “Most Days.” He taps Yung Bans for a sugary hook, setting the tone for a colorful anthem meant to stunt on haters who have changed their tone since the fame came.
- Chicago’s Jean Deaux has the accented R&B we all need to dance our way through fall in “Belly.” It’s raunchy (“This pussy good, make him want a baby mama”) and confident, and a great warning flame to not cross Jean—ever.
