- Brooklyn’s Alex Mali really cares about music. Since her 2019 debut Sweet & Sour, Mali has developed a confident presence on the mic. “Mind You” is a breathless R&B tune with bursts of ghostly rapping. Definitely don’t get on Alex Mali’s bad side.
- New York rapper-producer and Pro Era member Kirk Knight thrives After Dark. Produced by Kirk himself and Heavy Mellow, “Lose You” is a murky R&B cut that reminds us of Kirk’s versatility.
- Rock heads rejoice: My Morning Jacket has a new single. The darlings of Kentucky have been jamming since ‘98, and “Complex” features the anxiety we’ve all felt in the last few years over blaring guitars and that signature muddied vocal.
- Indie gem-dropper Reggie Becton debuted with California, and “Obvious” is the obvious hero track. This subtly soaring R&B is the perfect salve for those chilly nights wondering when cuffing season will make good on its promise.
- Bad Boy Timz wants you to “Move” with his new single. With production from Banjo Semilogo, this jittery Afrobeats cut is a reminder of the Nigerian artist’s ear for the danceable and hip-shaking.
