Featuring selections from both established stars and the next wave of new talent... Whether it’s a bop from our favorite shea butter baby, Ari Lennox, Summer Walker's latest drop, a soulful offering from Giveon, or some of Latto’s big baddie energy, whatever vibe you're looking for, these seven songs are ones you need to hear.
1 Summer Walker feat. JT From City Girls - Ex For a Reason
The melodic crooning of Summer Walker has returned with her latest single, “Ex for a Reason,” and she’s recruited City Girls’ JT to come along for the ride. It's the first from her second album we already know to be titled Still Over It. While the track's title could be taken one of two ways, in Summer and JT’s melodic case it’s about imploring people to take control of their relationships and keep the negative energy from past ones out.
2 Giveon - For Tonight
Another music and lyrical gift from Giveon, “For Tonight,” as the GRAMMY-nominated artist explains is “the story of a taboo vice that I just can’t seem to stop indulging in.”
3 Ari Lennox - Pressure
It’s giving Mo-Town vibes with a naughty neo-soul twist. "Pressure" with it’s weaves of catchy and upbeat pop beat, is an unabashed expression of sexual pleasure about being the center of attention during foreplay. Need we say more?
