“Chanel Pit” - Tierra Whack

Tierra Whack’s playful, nonsensical wordplay reaches a new level on her first release since 2021: “Arm and a leg for this bag/ And I got a bag in the bag/ And another bag inside my bag/ Ask what's in my bag, it's just a bag.”

“Ophelia” - PinkPantheress

PinkPantheress’ first full-length album is full of beautiful dance-pop reveries but none so pretty as “Ophelia,” a dainty harp-plucked tune masking a tragic break-up anthem.

“Houdini” - Dua Lipa

The only magic trick on Dua Lipa’s “Houdini” is how they made a bass-line that funky.

“I Believe In Love Again” - Peggy Gou, Lenny Kravitz

Peggy Gou and Lenny Kravitz are dance-floor cupids on this seductive rock-club anthem.

“Playing Favorites” - Sheer Mag

Philly rock heroes Sheer Mag had a singular mission for their new song: to make a straight up rock banger. They succeeded!

“I Care” - Fabiana Palladino & Jai Paul

Every second of Fabiana Palladino and Jai Paul’s slow-burning and luxurious four-minute duet is worth it.

“10.25” - Talia Goddess

Talia Goddess is a songwriter from Brooklyn making edgy alternative soul that ventures into the spiritual realm.

“Makeup (feat. Lolo Zouai)” - Slayyyter

A deconstructed pop banger that deserves to live on your pregame playlist.

“333” - Sita

Fashion It Girl and former Rihanna muse Sita shares her first-ever song: a chic techno thrasher with a devilish edge.

“Amar Otra Vez” - Cash Bently

Cash Bently’s modern corridos — Latin ballads of poetic storytelling — are moving and gorgeous and sound more familiar than one might think.
