Welcome to the weekend, my friends! It is NMF, or otherwise known as New Music Friday! Let’s see what’s new this week!
H.E.R. – Come Through (feat. Chris Brown)
This song is sexy, I won’t lie. There’s not a whole lot of good R&B out there these days. The genre just hasn’t been the same since the classics from the 90s and early 2000s. Come Through kind of brings me back to that.
The Weeknd – Save Your Tears (Remix feat. Ariana Grande)
I know, I know…you’ve heard this song a million times.
Ariana puts a fresh spin on it, and the video is wild. Cartoon Abel creates an Ariana Grande sex doll.
Honestly, I think this is the remix we didn’t know we needed.
Sasha Sloan – when was it over? (feat. Sam Hunt)
Our third duet of the week comes from a genre I don’t talk about enough.
I mean, it’s more on the country-pop side. I like it. It’s relatable and Sasha and Sam’s voices blend perfectly together.
Teddy Swims – Set The Bed On Fire
This is another one I’d stick in the country-pop genre. I’m just gonna say it. I f*cking love this song. This dude has some serious talent. If you haven’t seen him before, Teddy became a YouTube sensation with his amazing covers of popular songs. Like this one with almost 20 million views:
Here is the Atlanta, Georgia native with his new single, Set The Bed On Fire.
That’s gonna wrap it up for me. For more new releases, check out the updated NMF Spotify playlist right here.
Time to clock out for the weekend because it’s New Music Friday! We’ve got chart-topping stars AND indie/small label artists today!
Ariana Grande – Test Drive
Test Drive comes off of Ariana Grande‘s Positions Deluxe edition. It’s 1 of 5 new tracks on the album, and it stays with that promiscuous theme.
Sex. It is most definitely about sex.
As you could imagine, Ari stans are losing their minds on social media.
Let’s go ahead and listen to what all the chaos is about.
The Fiasco – Played Me At My Own Game
In our latest Indie Artist Interview, I talked to Adam and Tim of The Fiasco ahead of their newest release. The 4-man alt-rock band from England gives off that original Warped Tour vibe, and I am here for it. Influenced by bands like The Offspring and All Time Low, you can understand why.
Played Me At My Own Game will smack you in the face with nostalgia. Be sure to check out the interview and follow these guys before they blow up.
24kGoldn – 3,2,1
Only 20-years-old, Golden Landis Von Jones has himself another hit. Coming off the massive success of his last chart-topping single, Mood, 24kGoldn might be trending on TikTok again soon.
TikTok and Mood gave us this gem from @jrzl: Asian Mood.
The young 24kGoldn has a bright future ahead of him. Here’s his new single, 3,2,1.
This is an interesting collaboration that is blending the genres of hip-hop and rock together. Trippie Redd teamed up with former Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker, to produce this fusion album, NEON SHARK vs Pegasus.
Redd’s new album features collaborations with Chino Moreno of the Deftones, MGK, blackbear, Scarlrxd, and Zillakami.
This drug-infused love song slaps, and honestly…I’m digging the whole 40-track album so far.
Jane Handcock – Ion Like Dat
Introducing: Estabrook Road Records artist, Jane Handcock. The Oakland-born R&B singer-songwriter is coming in hot and she’s ready to make herself known. She has worked with some big names as a songwriter, including Kelly Rowland (who also has a new track out today,) Dr Dre, Ma$e, and producer Teddy Riley.
Jason Payne, CEO of Estabrook Road Records is putting Jane in the spotlight with her new single, Ion Like Dat.
“We just dropped Jane Handcock’s first single with us and I have to say, there’s a lot of excitement and buzz going on with this track. Jane is definitely a new artist on the rise and we are grateful to be apart of this journey with her.” Payne said.
Ion Like Dat is now available on all streaming platforms, and she will surely be hitting radio stations near you very soon!
That’ll do it for this week’s New Music Friday! For more new music from Chris Brown, Conan Gray, Lil Yachty, Luis Fonsi, and much more, listen to Spotify‘s New Music Friday playlist right here.
