Rico Nasty: Warner Music

There are lots of reasons to look forward to Fridays, and the fact that it’s the day most new music gets released is definitely way up there on the list. But the amount of new music can feel overwhelming at times, right? Well, we think so – and that’s why we’ve given life to a whole new playlist with handpicked musical goodies for you to fall in love with. We’re calling it the ‘Best New Music Playlist’ and the name says it all.

So without further ado, here are 10 new tracks that we’re digging at the moment – and a few more! Listen to the full playlist below.

Rico Nasty – “No Debate”

An anticipated moment has come with the drop of American rapper Rico Nasty‘s first official album release. Nightmare Vacation is a high-energy hip hop record with 16 cuts representing the punk aesthetics and genre-transforming sound that Rico Nasty has become known for. “No Debate” is a head-bouncing bop and one of many highlights of the album.

ENNY & Jorja Smith – “Peng Black Girls Remix”

Back in October, the South East London singer and rapper ENNY released her empowering third single “Peng Black Girls”, which saw ENNY and featured singer Amia Brave celebrate black womanhood, beauty and unity. Marking the beginning of the end of 2020, ENNY released a remix of the track on December 1st and it features a stunning guest verse and vocals by Grammy-nominated artist Jorja Smith whose label ENNY has recently been signed to. 2021 could easily turn out to be ENNY’s year and it would be nothing but well deserved.

Yung Baby Tate – “I Am (feat. Flo Milli)”

Georgia rapper Yung Baby Tate has released a brilliant new EP entitled After the Rain and it features an amazing collab with Alabama rapper Flo Milli. In a previous press release, Yung Baby Tate proclaimed that she wanted the EP to make people feel good about themselves, which is exactly what the bouncy “I Am” does. Neither Yung Baby Tate nor Flo Milli take any bullsh*it on this track and they make that perfectly clear while flexing their flows and slaying punchlines.

Melii – “You Ain’t Worth It (feat. 6LACK)

Melii sounds as good when she sings as when she raps and her great ear for melodies makes a track like “You Ain’t Worth It” a dream to listen to. In this hiphop duet, Melii and 6LACK play both parts of a broken relationship and it’s a brilliant new offering from the New York-based multi talent.

LAUREL – “Appetite”

The British edgy pop-newcomer LAUREL has released the first part of her two part EP project. It’s titled Petrol Bloom and it’s a glorious synthpop-manifestation of her great talent in crafting catchy, left-winged pop. Created within an equal parts retro and futuristic universe, “Appetite” is a groovy, bas-led gem making it impossible to sit still. Turned out it was all we ever wanted for Christmas this year… besides from piece and the end of a pandemic of course.

Yuna – “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching”

Malaysian R&B-artist Yuna refuses to stand still, and with “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching”, she’s pushed her sound further out of her R&B-sphere with a groovy house beat supporting her overall call to start dancing like nobody’s watching. We’ll do anything Yuna tells us with her beautiful and soulful voice!

Summer Banton – “Pretty Face”

Okay, we’ve got some serious 90s / 00s vibes going on in “Pretty Face” by rising London artist Summer Banton, and we’re loving it! If TLC’s legendary “No Scrubs” was written in 2020 it would probably sound something like this. Banton is eminent at mixing nostalgia with the current sound and “Pretty Face” is the perfect proof of just that.

Miynt – “A bite of papaya”

We’re not done with the dance-friendly tunes, cause Stockholm’s Miynt has released a dazzling new single called “a bite of papaya”. In a psyched up alt-pop universe, Miyant is forcing our thoughts onto a tropical, carefree parallel universe. Can we please stay there and dance for a while?

Doul – “Howl”

Hailing from Fukuoka, Japan, the young artist Doul manages every aspect of her creative alias herself – from styling and fashion to songwriting arranging and performance. With one leg in the past time’s aesthetics and the other on in the future, Doul has created a unique sound, which, in the case of “Howl”, comes in the form of an infectious dance-track.

Serena Isioma – “I Don’t Wanna Go”

The fast-rising first generation Nigerian-American artist Serena Isioma is tipped for big things in 2021 and she has only herself and her talent to thank. The Chicago-based musician breaks with all understandings of genres when she playfully mixes everthing from R&B and hip hop to indie and lo-fi pop, spicing it all up with something undefinable that might lay somewhere between her characteristic vocal and heartfelt energy. “I Don’t Wanna Go” is just one out of 7 highlights from her 7-track new EP The Leo Sun Sets, so hereby a recommendation to stream the whole thing.
