The Round- Up‘s reloaded with all of the week’s most essential cuts.

Happy Release Day, good people. Short on the long-fare — with Ariana Grande‘s highly-anticipated thank u, next and a deluxe edition of Buddy‘s stellar Harlan & Alondra, both out today — this week’s almost entirely dedicated to the singles campaign.

Ahead of the upcoming release of Marvin Gaye‘s lost-but-now-found What’s Going On follow-up, Salaam Remi‘s shared the first offering from the anxiously-awaited vintage Motown drop. Elsewhere in nostalgic funk frequencies, George Clinton‘s popped up on a bubbly, mid-tempo bop from Funky Taurus. Back in the present, Lucky Daye‘s keeping the P-Funk flag raised with his trim and trippy II EP. Meanwhile, Jamila Woods signaled her next project with a dreamy new cut. Clever Austin, the alter-ego of Hiatus Kaiyote drummer, Perrin Moss, serves up a slightly-swung glimpse of his forthcoming debut album on the Jon Bap-assisted “Blue Tongue.” Khalid teamed up with Disclosure for a slow-burn r&b number, Blu linked with Oh No for a shuffling salute to their hometown, and modern jazz marvel Kamaal Williams returned with a triumphant suite. And that’s just half the script.

Hear it all in this week’s installment of The Round-Up below. Hit the link to subscribe to Okayplayer’s Spotify channel for an endless supply of aux cord fodder. Tune in next week for another transmission.
