Keeping up with all the new music released each week is challenging. Something new comes out just as you start to fall in love with a particular song, album, or artist. Being a music fan today is enjoyable, but also challenging.
However, you can relax knowing that BET has you covered with our weekly New Music Mondays piece, which highlights some of the most recent performers, sounds, and trends in hip-hop, r&b, Afrobeat, house, and more.
You'll discover a variety of well-known (and less-well-known) musicians and up-and-coming artists. Without further ado, here are ten new records to start your week off with, led by Janelle Monáe, Lil Durk and Jean Dawson.
