This week’s longlist of #NewMusicFriday single and album releases appears at the bottom of the page, but first, a few highlights…
- Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have teamed up on new single WAP, which marks Cardi’s first new music in 2020. As for Megan, it’s her ninth track release this year and yet another superstar collab to add to her ever-growing list that includes Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla Sign and Beyoncé.
- Speaking of artists with a vigorous work ethic, Doja Cat has released new song Freak, a throwback R&B number she says is “to hold you guys off while I’m working on a new surprise.” Phew!
- Ava Max has released a ‘part 2’ of her recent single Kings & Queens, featuring Lauv. Will it be better than the best sequel song ever, Destiny’s Child’s Independent Women Pt. II? We’ll let you be the judge.
- Veteran British rockers Deep Purple release their 21st studio album Whoosh! this week. Produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd), early reviews of the record say – as it’s title suggests – it’s up there with their very best and more creative work.
