Here’s this weeks’ rundown of new music from some of your favorite artists in the game.
Doechii – Crazy
Doechii is going “Crazy” in all shades of nude. The video single closely follows the news of Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) and Capitol Records’ partnership with the Tampa-based artist. In typical Doechii fashion, “Crazy” is a visual aid that challenges the conventional, matching the song’s controlled chaos as a means to express rage. In return, women are encouraged to feel, exist, and observe without waiting for permission. Doechii’s breakneck flow challenges the stigmatized imagery of the female identity, using her words to create the world she occupies one track at a time.
Yung Lean – Bliss (feat. FKA Twigs)
In tandem with another entry into his decorated mixtape series, Yung Lean shares the visual for Stardust’s opening track, “Bliss” featuring FKA Twigs. After going viral for a second time in his life, thanks to TikTok and an extremely devoted fanbase, the Belarus-bred rapper returns with a self-released project via his own label, World Affairs. Stardust is proof positive that Yung Lean’s artistic value remains constant, enlisting Skrillex, Jack Donaghue and other longtime collaborators for a 12-track effort ahead of his fall 2022 Europe and North American tour.
NO1-NOAH – Bonjour (feat. Summer Walker)
NO1-NOAH kicks off the next chapter of his sonics with “Bonjour” featuring Summer Walker. The sensual track feels enticing, almost like an obsession with figuring out the language of love. You can hear the progression, too. With a new EP (You Should Come Over) in the works, this record previews what the Ghetto Earth Records signee has to offer, contributing to his ongoing success as a newcomer in the R&B space.
Scotty LVX – Receipts (feat. Rick Ross)
Scotty LVX lives a life of luxury in his new video for “Receipts” featuring Rick Ross. At his best, the Florida-bred rapper is about a bag. Scotty’s latest effort comes off the heels of releasing his new single last week, following up with a visual aid that truly embodies what the song represents. If this record is any indication of future happenings with Scotty LVX, he’s only going to get better with time.
