“Blood” by BAD CHILD

The electric new track explores BAD CHILD’s family lineage and multicultural heritage. The trumpet on the beat is exhilarating, making for a triumphant bop. BAD CHILD’s musicality is second to none and this is merely another hit in his discography.

Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon by Pop Smoke

Executive produced by 50 Cent, Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon is the posthumous debut album from Brooklyn rapper, Pop Smoke — who was tragically taken from us far too soon earlier this year. Collaborators like Da Baby, Swae Lee, and Lil Baby lent their voices to the 19 song project. The quality and talent displayed just solidify how much potential Pop Smoke had, and we’ll be cherishing this project dearly. Rest in Power Pop Smoke.

“Emmène-moi” (Red Farrow & Slater Manzo Remix) by Eli Rose

The Quebecois singer teamed up with Red Farrow and Slater Manzo for the house remix of “Emmène-moi” (which means take me away). The fun track comes just in time for summer, because let’s face it, who isn’t longing for a little escape right about now?

“Dopamine” by KUNGS ft. JHart

It’s a house music takeover this week with Kungs’ latest drop “Dopamine” featuring JHart. This is the latest single from the dapper DJ and it’s all about chasing that natural high (aka dopamine).

“Slow Grenade” by Ellie Goulding ft Lauv

Ellie and Lauv paired up for “Slow Grenade”, the latest song ahead of her fourth studio album Brightest Blues. If your’e in a messy relationship, or are just chilling but wanna live vicariously, this is the track for you. We’re only two weeks away from the album’s release, and “Slow Grenade” has made us even more excited.

“Sweat” by Myles Erlick

Calling all Myles stans! The triple threat just dropped “Sweat” and it’s a banger. “Sweat” marks the dawn of a new era and we’re hoping it’s just one of many releases we get from Myles in the upcoming weeks.

“Roman Candles” by Dizzy

The Juno Award winning indie group just dropped “Roman Candles“. The band describes this track as a song about being scared to mess up your life (and honestly, we can all relate). The music video, full of actual roman candles, perfectly coincides with all the holiday-driven firework displays we’ve seen lately, and we highly recommend watching.
