The full list of this week's key New Music Friday releases appears at the bottom of the page, but first, some highlights...
Lil Nas X is due to give birth (quite literally, as seen here) to his highly anticipated debut album Montero, which he's currently promoting via a series of incredible billboards across America. It's a star-studded affair, featuring Doja Cat, Elton John, Megan Thee Stallion and Miley Cyrus.
Another eagerly awaited debut, Tion Wayne unveils his debut collection, titled Green With Envy. Among its 17 tracks are the chart-topping Body remix (the UK's first drill Number 1), and guest vocals from D-Block Europe, Davido, 6LACK, Potter Payper, NSG, and Polo G.
On the singles front, Ella Henderson has teamed up with Parisian production duo Ofenbach on Hurricane - a song that absolutely does what it says on the tin.
Emeli Sande returns this week with Family, a song that feels like a full rebirth for the star after signing to independent label Chrysialis.
A day after announcing her new album Blue Water Road, Kehlani releases the collection's first single Altar - a heartfelt track that pays tribute to loved ones who have passed away.
Finally, singer-songwriter Foxes is back with Sister Ray, the lead single from her third studio album The Kick, and in a nutshell it's 3 minutes and 39 seconds of electropop perfection.
