So many artists, so little time. Each week we review a handful of new albums (of all genres), round up even more new music that we'd call "indie," and talk about what metal is coming out. We post music news, track premieres, and more all day. We update a playlist weekly of some of our current favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.

WESTSIDE GUNN, DJ PREMIER & BRADY WATT - "THE NARCISSIST"

Griselda's Westside Gunn has teamed up with boom bap legend DJ Premier and producer/musician Brady Watt for this new song, and as you'd probably expect from a team like this, it's an instantly-satisfying dose of lush, '90s-style East Coast rap.

GUNNA & POLO G - "WAVES"

Los Angeles Clippers' Kawhi Leonard and Warner Records' Eesean Bolden are putting together an album called Culture Jam later this year on Virgin Music Label, and it'll include this well-matched team-up from Gunna and Polo G.

SMILEY - "OVER THE TOP" (ft. DRAKE)

Drake appears on a new single by fellow Toronto rapper Smiley, which he also released on his OVO Sound label. Drake's in chest-puffed rap mode on this one, which contrasts well with Smiley's eccentric delivery.

LIL NAS X - "INDUSTRY BABY" (ft. JACK HARLOW)

Lil Nas X has released a new single featuring Jack Harlow and co-produced by Take A Daytrip and Kanye West. It continues his path into maximalist pop and also into over-the-top music videos.

--

TINASHE - "I CAN SEE THE FUTURE"

Tinashe has shared another taste of upcoming album 333, and it's a dose of the kind of melancholic, syrupy R&B that she won the world over with almost a decade ago.

--

COMMON HOLLY - "PREOCCUPY" & "THE MOON"

Common Holly released her sophomore album, When I say to you Black Lightning, in 2019, and now she's returned with two gorgeous new singles, "Preoccupy" and "The Moon." About 'Preoccupy," she says, "this song is about listlessness, and the particular anxiety that makes you turn in on—and turn against—yourself. It’s at least a few years old now, but it has struck a pretty potent chord for me this past year in our collective isolation. It’s from an EP that never came out, recorded over a weekend in Toronto with my friends Paul and Kenny from Little Kid."

--

CAMILA CABELLO - "DON'T GO YET"

Camila Cabello has announced that she'll follow 2019's Romance with her third album Familia, and the first single is "Don't Go Yet," which has a strong Latin pop influence. " I think 'Don't Go Yet' is just I think sonically and melodically, just me being free," Camila told Zane Lowe on Apple Music. "I think being in Miami for so long and having more family around me and speaking Spanish more made me feel, I don't know, just kind of brought me back."

--

--

BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME - "REVOLUTION IN LIMBO"

If you're gonna present your new album as a sequel to one of your most classic LPs, you better bring back some of your classic sound, and so far BTBAM have done exactly that with the singles for Colors II. This is their second, and it's an intense prog-metal onslaught in the way their much-loved 2000s material was.

OBONGJAYAR x SARZ - SWEETNESS EP

Nigerian Afro-fusionist Obongjayar and producer Sarz put out a collaborative four-song EP, which is a little more overtly pop than Obongjayar's usual material.

--

"I wrote BREACH with the intention of playing it live and big, but when my world got smaller it seemed right that these songs should get smaller too,” she says. “Tracking these songs in one take and quietly; taking them back to how they started when I wrote them — it felt right. Like risk free time travel."

--
