Listen to your favorite Hip Hop music now on Audacy
Some of these songs are brand new while some just may not have hit your rotation yet. Either way, we got you covered. We have Justin Bieber channeling his iconic Journals era or rising stars Renni Rucci and Moneybagg Yo tapping into some hit '90s R&B samples. Whatever vibe you're looking for, these seven songs are ones you need to hear.
Queen Naija feat. Ari Lennox - Set Him Up
Our favorite shea butter baby has been killing it lately and this feature with Queen Naija is only further proof of it. This sexy visual showcase both women in their best light and the song itself is the definition of the phrase, "he's OUR man now."
Giveon - Heartbreak Anniversary
One of the greatest gifts R&B has received in recent years is Giveon. The GRAMMY-nominated singer explains that the song relates to the feeling and tokens associated with heartbreak— withered flowers, deflated balloons...
Justin Bieber feat. Giveon & Daniel Caesar - Peaches
Our favorite Biebs is Journals Biebs. This collaboration with Giveon and Daniel Caesar is a soulful bop and if this is a peak into his next era, we're fully here for it.
Renni Rucci - Can’t Be
When you're able to flip a classic sample, you truly set yourself up for greatness. Renni Rucci took Beenie Man & Mya's timeless hit, "Girls Dem Sugar" and made it all her own. This definitely needs to be on every Hot Girl's playlist.
Doja Cat feat. SZA - Kiss Me More
Hailing from Planet Her, this collaboration is fun and perfect for a drive on a warm day. Not to mention, this is SZA's comeback season and we need more from TDE's First Lady.
Moneybagg Yo feat. Future - Hard For The Next
Did you know Ginuwine is listed as a co-writer on this track? Moneybagg Yo and Future sampled his soulful hit, "Differences" and the two go bar-for-bar about catering to your girl to make it harder for her next.
Rod Wave - Tombstone
Rod Wave tells the personal story of his life, his come up, and he wants to be remembered when he's gone. The visual is just as tragic as the lyrics imply and is the second single from his album, SoulFly.
