Discovering new music, albums, and artists can be hard, considering how much it all arrives in overwhelming waves on a weekly basis.
Don't worry, because BET.com has you covered with our New Music Mondays column. Built with you in mind, you won't miss out on the latest sounds thanks to us sifting through them to make things easier.
Curated by Wongo Okon, you'll find a familiar (and not-so-familiar) array of artists, emerging music, and a diverse range of genres as well.
So, without further ado, here are 10 new records that you should kick off your week with — led by Megan Thee Stallion, Pusha T, and Arin Ray.
Megan Thee Stallion — “Plan B”
Pusha T — “I Pray For You” feat. Labrinth, No Malice
Arin Ray — “The Mood” feat. D Smoke
PJ Morton — “Be Like Water” feat. Stevie Wonder & Nas
Blxst — “Every Good Girl”
Southside & Future — “Hold That Heat” feat. Travis Scott
WESTSIDE BOOGIE & Shelley (fka DRAM) — “AIGHT”
BNXN fka Buju — “Kilometer (Remix)” feat. Zinoleesky
Afrobeats is in great hands nowadays and it's thanks to newcomers like BNXN, formerly known as Buju. After dropping Sorry I’m Late at the end of last year, BNXN taps fellow Nigerian singer Zinoleesky for a lively remix of “Kilometer.”
Kwesi Arthur & Adekunle Gold — “Toxic”
Ghanaian singer Kwesi Arthur unleashed his new project Son Of Jacob last week and it features plenty of collaborations from highlight acts in Aafrobeats. Adekunle Gold, who is no stranger to those here at BET.com, makes “Toxic” one to add to your playlist rotation with his charismatic cadence next to Kwesi’s cooler-than-thou grooves. One of those is Adekunle Gold who appears on “Toxic.”
Future — “Wait For U” feat. Drake & Tems
Hip hop’s toxic king is back and he returns with a new album for the world. Future just dropped his ninth album I Never Liked U — and one of the highlight moments on the project comes through his new collaboration with Drake and Tems.
“Wait For U” samples the latter’s “Higher” for a record that accounts for their frustrations with a toxic and twisted relationship that they can’t see to run away from.
BOJ & BNXN — “Lekki Love”
Elsewhere in the world of Afrobeats, Nigerian singer BOJ teams up with his fellow countryman BNXN fka Buju for the tantalizing “Lekki Love.” It’s a highlight effort from BOJ’s new project Gbagada Express, which is out now.
