Childish Gambino – “12.38”

It came, it went, and then it came again. But the third studio album from the powerhouse polymath is finally here. A scattered and experimental outing, the first shot of new music on the wandering 12-track project is one of its brightest moments.

NxWorries – “itkanbe [sonice]”

Knxw and .Paak can do no wrong.

Caleb Giles feat. AKAI SOLO – “Goose”

A pair of Brooklyn’s most productive pontificators trade wisdom on.a lush and lo-fi loosie.

KeiyaA – “Way Eye”

A super-swung heater from the singer’s stellar debut album, Forever, Ya Girl. 

Braxton Cook – “The Rise”

A seductive and symphonic selection from the DMV do-it-all’s new album, Fire Sign

Little Dragon – “Where You Belong”

Back with their sixth studio album, the Swedish genre-smashers dip into post-Soulquarian R&B with this silky, mid-tempo two-stepper.

Channel Tres – “Weedman”

The Compton artist steps away from his house-fueled palette with a buoyant and shameless smoker’s anthem.

Conway The Machine and The Alchemist feat. ScHoolboy Q – “Shoot Sideways”

Already a winning pair, Con and Al wrangle Q for a vice rap spectacle off their upcoming collaborative album, LULU.

SahBabii – “Double Dick”

One for Magic City’s sure-to-dominate “virtual entertainment” initiative.

Orion Sun – “Birds Gave Up”

The closing prayer of the singer’s second album of the year is a tender glide over clean, spacious guitar work. Early contender for ballad of the year.
