The Round-Up: Best Songs of The Week - ft. Alchemist, H.E.R., Pusha T and More

A season-closing sequence for the threekend.

After weeks of piling it on, Release Day’s finally letting up a bit as summer crawls to a close.

The week’s list of long-plays is anchored by H.E.R.‘s polished and expansive, I Used to Know Her, Common‘s heartfelt, Let Love, SiR‘s hazed-out Chasing Summer, and Alchemist‘s luxurious looper, Yacht Rock 2.

Sudan Archives announced her next project with a symphonic jolt on “Confessions.” Ryahn bears a gritty and sophisticated soul on “SAD BOY.” Madison McFerrin eased into a cool, mid-tempo glide on “TRY.” Jarami stormed the floor with another house-laced pulse of pop. And that’s just half the script.
