Even with the holiday slowing down the music industry this week, there's still a good amount of new hip hop, including new projects from Smoke DZA & Curren$y, Paul Wall & Statik Selektah, and the Griselda crew, plus new singles from The Weeknd, City Girls, Koffee/Gunna, The Cool Kids, Valee, and more. Read on for all the hip hop and R&B we posted on BV this week...

THE WEEKND - "HEARTLESS" & "BLINDING LIGHTS"

The Weeknd is back with two new songs: the Metro Boomin-produced "Heartless" which isn't far removed from the type of sad, druggy R&B he became known for at the beginning of this decade, and the very '80s pop-sounding "Blinding Lights."

CITY GIRLS - "YOU TRIED IT"

City Girls have dropped their second new single since JT was released from prison, and it comes with a twerk-filled video, but it's not just a party song. It's pretty menacing stuff too.
