Kali Uchis' "No Hay Ley" & 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.

Interscope Records
“No Hay Ley” - Kali Uchis

The only thing we don’t love about this sparkling house track by Kali Uchis is that it’s a fleeting two-and-a-half minutes. The great part is that it sounds seamless on repeat. (YouTube)

“There’d Better Be A Mirrorball” - Arctic Monkeys

Romantic, grown-up, and utterly cinematic: welcome to Arctic Monkeys’ soft dad rock era. (YouTube)

“Tissues” - Yungblud

You’ve never heard the punky pop musician as optimistic and bright as he is on “Tissues.” (YouTube)

“Last Words” - Kenny Beats (ft. Fousheé, Remi Wolf)

Kenny Beats’ first solo album, Louie, is like lo-fi hip-hop beats if it was elevated 100 levels; “Last Words” blows through in less than two minutes, but it’s a soulful stunner. (YouTube)

Dreamville/Interscope Records
“Gummy” - Ari Lennox

The ‘80s is pretty much back again, and Ari Lennox’s flip on Mary Jane Girls’, “All Night Long” is groovy, assured, and pretty sublime. (YouTube)

Balming Tiger
“Sexy Nukim” - Balming Tiger ft. RM

K-hip hop isn’t too well known in the West, but this feature from BTS’ RM will hopefully bring one of the scene’s more innovative players, Balming Tiger, into a brighter, well-earned spotlight. (YouTube)

Nicole Ngai
“Dancing In The Shadows” - TSHA

London’s extraordinary TSHA can’t make a bad song. Her latest single, joyous and effervescent, is yet another masterpiece for the books. (YouTube)

Royal Mountain Records
“Destroyer” - Girlpuppy

At the start of 2022, we named Girlpuppy a musician to watch. Months later, we still stand by that ruling as she shares a breezy and standout indie-folk track. (YouTube)

“Blessed” - GloRilla

GloRilla, the breakout Memphis rapper behind summertime hit “F.N.F (Let’s Go),” is equipped with a robust, remarkable voice that’s utterly captivating on her latest track with label boss, Yo Gotti. (YouTube)

“good” - Winter (ft. Sasami)

On the Brazilian musician Winter’s latest song, she repeats its only lyrics, “I wanna be good to you,” so many times it begins to sound less like a harmless wish and more a haunting omen. (YouTube)
