The Round-Up: Best Songs of The Week – ft. Salaam Remi, Kari Faux, PJ Morton, and More [Playlist]

The Round-Up returns with the spoils of a fruitful week.

Happy Day-After-Valentine’s, beloveds. This week’s Release Day hits for the hopeless romantics and the hapless loners with equal force. The album rollouts took a needed rest, with Drake‘s debut mixtape, So Far Gone, and Lucki’s (fka Lucki Eck$Freewave 3 (featuring a production spot from Earl Sweatshirt) leading the long-plays.

But the singles ran the show, as they tend to do. Kari Faux returned to the fold with the slow-burn isolationist anthem, “LEAVE ME ALONE.” Salaam Remi shook the dust off some unreleased Amy Winehouse vocals for the Nas-assisted ballad “Find My Love.” UK jazz crew, Ezra Collective, bounced a four-to-floor groove into the Carribean with their frenetic new single “Quest For Coin.” Fresh off his Grammy win, PJ Morton jumped right back into the pool with a glimmering JoJo duet. Meanwhile, Cardi B and Bruno Mars are back at it with their latest ’90s-channeling slow jam, “Please Me,” And that’s just half the script.

Hear it all in this week’s episode of The Round-Up below. Hit the link to subscribe to Okayplayer’s Spotify channel for all of your lover’s rock requisites.
