Soundcheck: The 10 Best Music Releases The Week Of November 22, 2021


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.

“My Little Love” - Adele

Adele, a titanic artist that comes once every generation, has released 30. Its most experimental song, “My Little Love,” featuring voice notes between her and her son, Angelo, has already emerged as a breakout moment for the artist.

Simon Emmett

“Bet It” - Cardi B

After lending her voice to several major pop tracks this past year, Cardi B returns to form with “Bet It,” a no-nonsense rap track that sees glimpses of her Gangsta Music days.


“Fix You” - Kacey Musgraves

If the original version of “Fix You” makes you cry, then maybe think twice before hitting play on Kacey Musgraves’ twangy, orchestral cover of the Coldplay track.

UMG Recordings

“Money” - Rico Nasty ft. Flo Milli

Rico Nasty and Flo Milli are an unstoppable duo on “Money,” a bouncing, fortune-favoring bop that we can’t believe didn’t happen sooner.

Sugar Trap/Atlantic Records

“$payforhaiti (feat. Mach Hommy)” - Kaytranada

Fall under the inevitable spell of Kaytranada’s jazzy and spellbinding production, which gets a special boost here from feature rapper Mach Hommy, who raps part of his verses in Creole.

RCA Records

“Mememe” - 100 Gecs

After revolutionizing pop in 2019, 100 gecs return with their first single since: “mememe,” a taunting, bleep-blooping, throttling track directed at past flames who’ve wronged them.

Dog Show Records

“wondering how” - Scruffpuppie

A heavy moment of introspection is translated into a fuzzed-out punk anthem on “wondering how,” the latest single from promising new signee to Phoebe Bridgers’ Saddest Factory, Scruffpuppie.

Saddest Factory

“Roze (Forgive)” - Fred Again

U.K. song-maker Fred Again makes dance music that’s as emotional as it is euphoric. “Roze (Forgive)” from his latest album draws upon strings, soulful vocals, and a bright beat to paint a rich orange aura of longing.

Atlantic Records

“Calvin K” - CLIP

NYC rising rapper CLIP raps in the same way she might dole out an insult in passing — nonchalant and unbothered. But combined with her bass-busting trap production her lines, “You a lame and you a dud,” hit.
