You already know the drill, it’s New Music Friday and we’re unleashing the best of the best that our editors and writers have had their eyes and ears on this week. This week we’re offering up a taste of R&B, hip-hop and delving a bit into some albums that are injected with pop and jazz.
Vince Staples leads the pack with his self-titled release; Snoh Aalegra presents her exquisite release Temporary Highs in the Violet Skies; Femme It Forward shares a collaborative compilation Big Femme Energy Vol. 1 featuring Baby Rose, Rapsody, Tayla Parx, Sinead Harnett and more. Also, out today is Mariah The Scientist’s experimental release: RY RY World.
For the hip-hop heads, we recommend you dig into Stalley’s Gone Baby, Gone and Styles P’s Ghosting.
We never forget about lesser known artists around these parts, this week we’re really, really into the projects from Dave B., Deem Spencer, and Mayhrenate. Give their releases a spin too, you won’t be disappointed.
