New Music Fridays are an exciting but daunting prospect for any music lover.
It’s essentially a weekly holiday when popular artists and fresh faces release their latest deals around the world, and flood streaming services and digital retailers with an onslaught of sonic goodies. But who has the time to sit there and listen to everything before they update their playlists? There is just too much that is good! (And if we’re being honest, usually a few stinkers too.)
As it turns out, we do. Welcome to The MixtapE!
It will be hard to steal the limelight Normani and Cardi B‘s breathtaking shower scene in her music video “Wild Side”. But there are some worthy contenders for this New Music Friday, with bops from women as prominent as Shakira, Noah Kirel, Shenseea, pasture and Avril Lavigne.
Or if you are at the top of your feelings Clairo and John Mayer satisfy with each of their musical considerations.
Not to mention that fans will enjoy some fiery new collabs including “KESI (Remix)” by Camilo and Shawn Mendes, as well as “She’s Fire” by Diane Warren, G-Eazy and Santana.
What follows is our pick for the best of the best.
