“Don’t Do Me Good” - Madi Diaz, Kacey Musgraves

Two of Nashville’s most devastating voices deliver a solemn, no-gimmicks duet about a sunsetting relationship.

“Amigos” - BIBI & Becky G

K-pop’s BIBI and Latin pop princess Becky G keep it “just friends” on this sultry, serpentine bop that feels destined to top the charts.

“Puppet” - Dora Jar

Los Angeles’ singer Dora Jar resists being a puppet on this murmuring and stuttering rock psychedelic.

“Shake The Room” - UNIIQU3, Dos Flakos

Shoehorns and sirens usher in Jersey Club star UNIIQU3 and Dominican DJ duo Dos Flakos’s latest wall-shaking heater.

“pretty photos” - Kanii

Kanii, Washington, D.C.’s answer to The Weeknd who’s joining PinkPantheress on tour, makes plush grooves that are irresistable.


NYC collective MICHELLE’s “Glow” opens on a kooky alarm that makes their alt-pop all the more fun.

“Just Your Doll” - Snow Strippers

Snow Strippers’ idiosyncratic sound is a hurricane swirl of bashed emo piano, hyperpop glitches, and clubby thumps.

“Down Down Bb” - H31R, Quelle Chris

New Jersey/Brooklyn rap duo H31R brings Quelle Chris into the fold of their spacey, chilled-out sound, which rides the line between rhythmic meditation and minimalistic dance.

“Nothing Lasts” - Emily Yacina

Emily Yacina’s shuffling and bopping “Nothing Lasts Forever” sounds like driving into an early morning sunrise.

“If I’m Being Honest” - Frankie Bird

Oakland native Frankie Bird has the kind of voice that breaks through the walls of a song — something that’s unmissable on her latest, “If I’m Being Honest.”
