Future: High Off Life
Rapper Future is back with his 8th studio album High Off Life. After posting multiple tweets regarding relationships and heartbreak, fans had a feeling that a new project was on the way. Featuring his hit single with Drake ‘Life Is Good,’ High Off Life is considered one of the best revival albums. No one can tell us that Future didn’t go off on this project. With features such as Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Travis Scott, and more, the hour and 21 minutes will definitely be worth your time!

Trippie Redd & PARTYNEXTDOOR: ‘Excitement’
Following the drop of his album, A Love Letter To You 4, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, Trippie Redd is back with a new single, but he didn’t come alone! PARTYNEXTDOOR joins him in ‘Excitement,’ which is exactly what we felt when we heard of this fire collab. With the emotion and darkness of Trippie’s melodies and PARTYNEXTDOOR’s irresistible R&B vocals, ‘Excitement’ is a collaboration that will be hard to forget once you give it a listen. Trust us when we say you don’t want to sleep on this stirring, sensual track.

Chloe x Halle: ‘Do It’
Just a month after their collaboration with Swae Lee in ‘Catch Up,’ our iconic duo, Chloe x Halle, is back again with their brand new single ‘Do It!’ Not only did they come through with choreography that was flipped into a challenge on Tik Tok, but let’s talk about their angel-like harmonies and vocals they serve throughout the track! The women are a triple-threat, with their stunning vocals, their clear gift in dancing, and their memorable roles on FreeForm’s Grown-ish! Along with the drop of their single, the duo has also announced their upcoming, sophomore album Ungodly Hour, which will be out everywhere June 5th!

The rapper added on 7 additional tracks that feature some of your favorites, such as Big Homiie G, Lil Baby, Big 30, and Rylo Rodriguez.

Joseph Black: (i hope you) miss me’
Joseph Black has a way of making us feel all the feels. Because of him, we’re missing someone we thought was forgotten. Black dropped the video for ‘(I Hope You) Miss Me,’ which premiered on WSHH (WORLD STAR HIP-HOP.) The single is already trending on TikTok, made Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart, and accumulated over 10 million global streams. The video begins with Black trying to smoke and drink the pain away blaring out heartbreaking lyrics over a gloomy piano and trap drums.

LuvK: ‘Diamond Grillz’
Another singer/producer duo is on the rise! LUVK teamed up with producer VenessaMichaels for ‘Diamond Grillz.’ Thinking outside of the box, the two have been described as the next Drake and 40, Sonny and Cher, and Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell. Not fond of following the rules, LUVK is known for implementing Hip Hop, R&B, and Rock & Roll into her music. Her vocals and VenessaMichaels’ sick beat make this song an amazing bop.

Rising artist BINNY releases his debut single ‘Retrograde,’ which beautifully shows off his silky, R&B vocals and the emotion behind the production. BINNY strives to not only be a successful artist but to also recognize and represent Asian Americans in pop culture and mainstream music. “I hope to be a part of that change,” He shares, “to be [an] inspiration for other Asian Americans who want to pursue music.” We’re all about equal representation and diversity, and we think BINNY will do a fantastic job of showing so!
