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.
Moneybagg Yo — “See Wat I’m Sayin”
Moneybagg Yo is going to make sure you see his vision. That’s his message on his new single “See Wat I’m Sayin.” It’s the Memphis native’s second single of the year, with both songs set to appear on his upcoming fifth album, which may arrive sooner than later, and follow his chart-topping A Gangsta’s Pain.
Kaash Paige — “24 Hrs” feat. Lil Tjay
It’s an impressive record that proves the best is yet to come with Kaash.
Jim Jones & Maino — “King Of The City” feat. Capella Grey
UMI — “Synergy”
Seattle-born singer UMI gave us a preview of her official step into the music world with her 2020 EP Introspection. Almost two years after that arrived, she’s back with her official debut Forest In The City. It’s a beautiful project, something that’s clear with songs like “Synergy,” for a top-to-bottom effort that UMI says she hopes “can be a sonic oasis.”
Kamaiyah — “Blue Maserati”
Nonso Amadi & Majid Jordan — “Different”
Calvin Harris — “Potion” feat. Dua Lipa & Young Thug
The record proves that Funk Wav Bounces, Vol. 2 should be an exciting release.
Debbie — “All Night Long”
British singer Debbie got her 2022 year underway by releasing “Stay” last month. Now, the 23-year-old returns with “All Night Long” which strikes as a soaring release and truly puts her towering vocals on display.
Jimmie Allen — “On My Way” feat. Jennifer Lopez
With his third album Tulip Drive due for a release on June 24, country singer Jimmie Allen arrives with “On My Way,” his latest offering from the album. Complete with a surprising feature from the Bronx’s own Jennifer Lopez, the duo sings of the moments before two lovers reconnect after some time apart.
Jex Nwalor — “Come Back”
In the final months of 2021, Jex Nwalor would see his stock rise to new heights thanks to “Don’t Say” and “Time Goes ‘Bye.’” With his debut EP in the works, Nwalor looks to build off last year’s momentum with “Come Back.” It’s a lovelorn effort that captures in full reflection mode as he looks back on past relationships.
