Megan Thee Stallion), and more. Read on for all the hip hop and hip hop-adjacent songs we posted this week...

SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA AND THE WEEKND - "MOTH TO A FLAME"

One day after it was more or less revealed that Swedish House Mafia are playing and probably headlining Coachella 2022, the trio put out a new song featuring lead vocals by 2018 Coachella headliner The Weeknd. SHM cater to the moody, '80s-style synthpop that's become The Weeknd's calling card in recent years, and it basically sounds like a great new Weeknd single.

It features Sheek Louch, KXNG Crooked, CyHi The Prynce, and more, as well as production from Heatmakerz, Apollo Brown, Salaam Remi, Namir Blade, and more, and new single "OG" is a lyrical and musical reminder that Joell is a lifer.

PROBLEM - "DIM MY LIGHT" (ft. SNOOP DOGG)

Compton rapper Problem keeps the sound of classic West Coast rap alive, so it's no surprise that Snoop Dogg -- an architect of that sound -- sounds great on this.

BOBBY FISHSCALE - "OWN EYES" (ft. INK & MOZZY)

Roc Nation-signed Florida rapper Bobby Fishscale taps Ink and Mozzy for this powerful, mournful-sounding new song. "Own eyes to me means to not let others dictate your future," said Bobby. "See it with your own eyes."
