What a week!
Any week you get a new Beyoncé album is a good week but Queen Bey is just the start. After already getting new Tasty! Jams from Goldwash, Four Tet, Easy Life, More Giraffes and La Felix the week was off to a hot start. Today though Beyoncé graced us with her Lion King soundtrack-adjacent album featuring her hubby JAY Z, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Tierra Whack, Pharrell, 070 Shaka and many more big names. We also got a new album from Hip-Hop next big thing Maxo Kream, with features from Travis Scott, ScHoolboy Q, A$AP Ferg and more. Tuxedo, the collaborative duo between Mayer Hawthorne and producer Jake One, released their third album together today, featuring tons of cheery, upbeat tunes to keep those summer vibes going. And, speaking of summer vibes, we’ve got the newest Café Kitsuné Compilation, mixed by Young Franco and featuring jams from CAPYAC & Cool Company, Tensnake, Rhye, Pastel and many more.
On the singles side of things, we got the incredibly fun new one from Verzache, some fun funk from Cosmo’s Midnight, and another wonderful collaboration between Nick Dorian and Shibo. LeyeT scores big on “Notice You,” slenderbodies do what they do best on the gorgeous “away from you” and Ashe glides through the slow jam “Cold In California.” We’ve also got new jams from DEVOTED, featuring Mai Lan, Louis Mattrs, Papooz, Rich Brian, and two new jams from Slow Magic.
