Charli XCX, Lorde - "The girl, so confusion version with lorde"

The phrase “cultural reset” gets bandied about a lot, but I can’t remember the last time a single felt like such a pure vibe shift; here’s two of the biggest pop stars in the world hashing out their very private beef in a way that’s almost impossibly raw.

Kali Uchis - "Never Be Yours"

The new single from Kali Uchis is mellow and dazed, a piece of typically enticing vintage-tuned R&B.

Ben Hauke, Katy B - "MADE TO MEASURE"

This highlight from London producer Ben Hauke’s new album Club Cute features the inimitable voice of Katy B, whose presence makes this track sound old-school and modern at the same time.

Jamie xx, Robyn - "Life"

Just in time for Pride Month, the latest single from Jamie xx’s In Waves features Robyn paying tribute to ballroom culture with reverence and a bit of a wink.

Ice Spice - "Phat Butt"

Ice Spice recalls her friend/icon Nicki Minaj on the latest single from her anticipated debut album Y2K.

Peso Pluma, Cardi B - "PUT EM IN THE FRIDGE"

Cardi lends a hand to Mexican superstar Peso Pluma on this simmering, hard-as-nails cut from the rapper’s new album EXODO.

Camila Cabello - "Chanel No.5"

This piano-led new cut from Camila’s new hyperpop album C,XOXO is gentle, catchy and just familiar enough.

Maren Morris, Julia Michaels - "cut!"

The latest single from Maren Morris’s post-country era is anthemic and dramatic, a breakup song that’s perfect for karaoke.

NewJeans - "Supernatural"

NewJeans, still in their new-jack swing bag, return with this delightfully breezy 250-produced cut.
