Towards the end of the year with holidays approaching, I thought that the artists I follow would slow their roll and wait to release projects until next year. Thankfully, that has not been the case and we have been blessed with a healthy stream of new music from some talented people. Here’s a list of recent tracks!

Anderson .Paak – Who R U?

Gearing up for a new album, .Paak dropped a fire track to get us ready.

Earl Sweatshirt – Nowhere2go

To this day, I still listen to Earl’s last album, so him dropping new music is like icing on the cake.

Little Dragon – In My House

Everything Little Dragon makes is awesome as all hell so definitely tune in whenever they release new music.

Amir Obé – Famous

Sad R&B dude Amir Obé makes a good track!

Leikeli47 – CIAA

Leikeli47 is one of the best female rappers out right now and I love the fact that she’s being diverse with her music’s genres/styles.

Rosalía – MALAMENTE (Cap.1: Augurio)

Rosalía is bringing some awesome flamenco fusion music to the mainstream and it’s a really great listen.

A.CHAL ft. Darell – LA DUEÑA

A.CHAL has been making some slaps for the past few years and I hope he comes out with more.

Vince Staples -Run the Bands

NEW VINCE STAPLES. All I gotta say.

Smino ft. Valee – KRUSHED ICE

This is the collab I always wanted but never knew I needed. Smino’s whole new album is a must-slap.

Christian Rich, Little Dragon, Vic Mensa -DRIPPING SUMMERS

I really don’t know how this track slipped through my radar but it’s more Little Dragon for my soul.

I hope I was able to put you onto something new to enjoy into the new year, always keep an eye out for new genres and artists! People are always releasing things, but to find some new music you gotta swim through a lot of randoms. It’s always worth it, though.
