Beyoncé's "Summer Renaissance" & 9 Other New Songs Out This Week


Every week, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK — your destination for the best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's roundup features 10 of our favorite emerging and established artists.

Parkwood Entertainment
“Summer Renaissance” - Beyoncé

Bow down to Beyoncé. Her new album, Renaissance, is already being hailed as doing just that for dance music, and “Summer Renaissance,” the juicy, thrilling closer to the record, is its tantalizing, orgasmic peak. (YouTube)

“2 Die 4” - Tove Lo

Tove Lo’s singlehandedly reviving Eurodance with “2 Die 4,” a flirty entreaty that brilliantly samples one of electronic music’s earliest viral hits, “Popcorn” by Crazy Frog. (YouTube)

Columbia Records
“New To You (with Normani, Tinashe & Offset)” - Calvin Harris

Normani, Tinashe, and Offset sound fresh and wide-eyed on Calvin Harris’ swooning, dusky dance ode to burgeoning love. (YouTube)

Trevor Flores
“Panorama” - Hayley Kiyoko

Hayley Kiyoko’s “Panorama” was made to soundtrack the massive, breath-taking moments of life — and it sounds that way. (YouTube)

“Hold The Girl” - Rina Sawayama

With shades of U.K. garage and turn-of-the-millennium pop, Rina Sawayama’s “Hold The Girl” is a surprisingly tender song about reconnecting with (and healing) one’s inner child. (YouTube)

“Shatter” - Maggie Rogers

Unleashing a torrent of anger, love, and excited desperation over craggy punky guitar on “Shatter,” Maggie Rogers has never sounded so self-assured. (YouTube)

“So What” - Boys World

Girl groups are having a moment, and the suave, maximalist TikTok faves Boys World should be high on your list of acts to watch. (YouTube)

Molly Matalon
“Problem With It” - Plains

Jess Williamson and Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield are a songwriting force to be reckoned with as Plains, their new country-folk supergroup. (YouTube)

“Slow” - Pip Millett

English singer Pip Millett’s “Slow,” sounds like R&B made by a dance producer: soulful, kinetic, and full of sonic surprises. (YouTube)

100% Electronica
“Daydream” - Neggy Gemmy

Electronic whiz Neggy Gemmy’s “daydream” meshes sunny ‘00s sensibilities with potent, dance floor-ready beats. Think: dELiA*s on acid. (YouTube)
