ÃHenry, “Everything you need”
Nigerian-American artist ÃHenry has released his new smooth single, “All You Need”. The track is her sixth single released this year and the first offering from her upcoming album. âAll You Needâ sees the Oakland native at his most confident, as he woos his queen with romantic gestures and more refined things by pleading his case and wearing his heart on his sleeve.
Isaia Huron, “One in a Million”
On âOne in a Millionâ, Isaia Huron delivered a sensual interpolation of Aaliyah’s classic hit of the same name. Appearing on his new EP Cerulean ribbons, the Nashville artist brings his own twist to the song, stretching his voice through thrill-evoking falsettos.
Fana Hues, “Breakfast”
Pasadena-based artist Fana Hues is releasing his new single “Breakfast”. As a preview of the song on COLORS, over the past year the singer has accomplished everything she wanted and more.
The feat of Nnena. Westside Boogie, “Come Back”
Cleveland artist Nnena teams up with Compton’s Westside Boogie for “Come Again”. The song appears on its new … just cause EP. “I don’t need your money, I have mine / just enough to wipe away all my tears,” she sings.
Stunna Gambino, “Man Down”
Stunna Gambino is releasing a new single called “Man Down”. On a dark beat, the 19-year-old New York rapper recognizes his flaws and raps about his desire for true love, with a melodic flow that has become a staple of his music.
Zacari ft. Justin Nozuka, “Blossom”
In a collaboration no one could have predicted, TDE signer Zacari is teaming up with acoustic favorite Justin Nozuka for “Blossom.” The track from Zacari’s latest EP is a sweet and delicate dedication, as the two crooners confess their most vulnerable feelings on an angelic acoustic guitar and a dash of percussion. “This must be how flowers feel blooming,” sings Kendrick Lamar’s collaborator on the song’s outro.
Pink Sweat $ feat. 6lack, “Midnight River”
Pink Sweat $ ‘s latest single is in a bad mood. Dark introductory guitar chords set the scene for the Philadelphia singer’s bittersweet story, detailing romantic uncertainties. In the second verse, LVRN signer 6lack rushes with his relaxed rhymes to hip-hop drums, pouring his heart out for someone special. The trail is tailor-made for those cold, contemplative winter nights.
The feat of O’My. Femdot, “Dragon”
While The O’My’s has been around for a while, their latest single seems brand new. The Chicago duo’s âDragonâ is less fire and more water, a neo-soul and sweet offering that is sure to spark calm reflection. With an introspection feature from Femdot, another Chicago native, the track feels classic, and is sure to stay in playlists for years to come.
SnÃ¸w, “Another lie”
The winter blues are in full effect on SnÃ¸w’s latest single, “Another Lie”. The lo-fi singer gives up all hope in a relationship, lamenting: “I tried to find a cure but I don’t think I willâ¦ and what’s the point of trying if it all ends the same way.” The track is melancholy in both words and rhythms, the slow guitars and equalized drums translating SnÃ¸w’s dark feelings into sound.
Benny Sings feat. Rae Khalil & St. Panther, “Beat 5”
Benny Sings enlisted newcomers Rae Khalil and St. Panther on the short, sweet “Beat 5”. While we wish the track would last longer, we happily savor the 60 seconds of distorted piano, groovy bass, hoarse and effortless vocals and most of all, pristine vibrations.
