The Round-Up: Best Songs of The Week - ft. Lizzo, Anna Wise and More
The Round-Up returns with all of the week’s most essential cuts.
And we back (*pre-preachy Chance voice*). The Round-Up‘s been on a bit of a hiatus, but Okayplayer’s weekly scan of crucial cuts has officially returned to keep your ear fixed to the racing pulse of new music releases.
The comeback is equipped with funk of terrestrial and otherworldly origins, ala Kamasi Washington and Brainfeeder’s latest signee, Louis Cole; R&B experiments courtesy of Chassol, Ben Khan, Anna Wise, and Jon Bap; dancefloor freakouts from Lizzo and Katzú Oso; as well as some trap-savvy treats (no tricks) from Freddie Gibbs, Yung Bans, Buddy, and A$AP Ferg. And we can’t forget Georgia Anne Muldrow’s lo-fi-smothered, 808s craze debut “Overload.” And yes, there’s even some residual heat from the G.O.O.D. Summer finale, Teyana Taylor’s stunning Keep That Same Energy.
The playlist will be updated every Friday morning. Press play on The Round-Up below. Hit the link to subscribe to Okayplayer’s Spotify channel and never wonder what’s next on the rotation.
