For those of you hearing about any of these tracks from the first time — that’s awesome and you’re welcome. And if you’ve already been playing them on repeat, don’t lie, they’re all go-to bops, so please don’t @ us, and just enjoy. Featuring selections from Lil Baby, Ciara, Bryson Tiller and more, there’s really no way you can go wrong.
1 Lil Baby - Heyy
Yes, we know Lil Baby has skyrocketed to the forefront of mainstream rap, but just in case there’s a chance you still haven’t heard “Heyy" — which btw is a great example of his ability to sound melancholic and poppy all at once — here it is, we gotchu.
2 Quavo & Takeoff feat. YoungBoy Never Broke Again - To The Bone
There’s no denying that when NBA YoungBoy collaborates with members of Migos, it’s gonna be an absolute bop. So on this collab with Unc & Phew, they gave us major vibes, relentless flows and potent melodic raps. All in all, as expected, “To The Bone” is a certified banger.
3 Bryson Tiller - Outside
Though we love him for his emotion-evoking R&B vibes, we’re not mad at Bryson’s new-ish track “Outside” which is very “anti-feels.” Which might be confusing since its essentially him singing to a love interest, encouraging her to get involved with him and forget about her ex. But that’s neither here nor there, point is give it a listen.
4 SiR - Nothing Even Matters
Joyfully singing about how his wife make him “wanna be a better man,” Sir samples “Nothing Even Matters” by Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo and interpolates “Mad Issues” by Angie Stone, on this horn heavy track, all while maintaining his own fresh originality. It’s a straight up vibe, and also kinda makes us consider settling down… we said kinda.
5 Jessie Reyez feat. 6LACK - FOREVER
Easily one of the best, if not the best track on her recently released album Yessie, “FOREVER” sees Jessie Reyez and 6LACK using their sly vocals, vulnerable and expressive lyrics, and a slow-burning style to sing about doing everything in their power to get their partners to stay with them. And we’re here for every second of it.
6 Ciara feat. Summer Walker - Better Thangs
Ciara and Summer Walker’s “feel-good R&B anthem,” is all about “elevating every aspect of your life” and meant “to bring joy while inspiring the continuous evolution of one’s self.” And also, it’s catchy AF.
7 DDG feat. Offset - Bulletproof Maybach
Proving he’s much more than just a YouTuber, DDG delivers with this Offset assisted track. “Bulletproof Maybach” is crispy, saucy and slick all at the same time. Loosely translated — its fire flames.
