Wale has finally released his newest album Folarin II, this week’s lineup also features albums from Fetty Wap, BIA, Moneybagg Yo and others.
We’ve returned to unleash the best music to arrive this week for New Music Friday. As usual, hip-hop dominates, but there are a few neo-soul and R&B-inspired releases that are difficult to ignore.
Wale leads the pack this week with his stellar album Folarin II featuring J. Cole, Rick Ross, Maxo Kream, and Yella Beezy; after a hiatus, Fetty Wap returns with The Butterfly Effect; Moneybagg Yo reveals A Gangsta’s Pain: Reloaded, Don Q releases the biting project Double or Nothing and BIA shares FOR CERTAIN (Deluxe).
In the realm of neo-soul and R&B we’re pleased to recommend Sam Ezeh’s Sapphire Alley, it’s an explosive release; ZRi. has rolled out Sage; Majid Jordan drops Wildest Dreams, and Borboleta offers up Until That Time.
There are also drops from Bktherula, Fashawn, Comethazine, TyFontaine, Loski worth giving a spin. It’s worth noting that Kawhi Leonard has also put together Culture Jam Vol. 1 with appearances from A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Capalla Grey, Lil Uzi Vert, Gunna and more.
