tmrw presents you New Music Friday, but in the only way you can be bothered to digest it; in ten words or less. This week, Rihanna drags Pharrell back to relevancy with bars that will change your life, Charli XCX has the basic banger she probably needs to finally release her third album and Sam Smith chokes on an album as uninspired as it is boring.
N.E.R.D – ‘LEMON’ feat. RIHANNA
An entire rap album from Rhianna would change the world.
DAVID GUETTA and AFROJACK – ‘DIRTY SEXY MONEY’ feat. Charli XCX and FRENCH MONTANA
Hopefully this is a massive hit for Charli.
TAYLOR SWIFT – ‘CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT’
Now that’s more like it.
RAYE – ‘DECLINE’
A banger referencing another classic banger.
WILLOW – ‘BOY’
Think ‘Whip My Hair,’ then the exact opposite.
JONES – ‘SOMETHING ABOUT OUR LOVE’
Basic but you know we love a bit of basic.
FOLAMI – ‘FOUR TO THE FLOOR’
Studio 54 vibes for days.
MADISON BEER – ‘SAY IT TO MY FACE’
A very nice future Selena Gomez album track.
MIGOS – ‘MOTORSPORT’ feat. CARDI B and NICKI MINAJ
We were hoping for the rap ‘The Boy Is Mine.’
ALLIE X – ‘CASANOVA’ feat. VERITÉ
Allie X continues to slowly change the face of pop.
LIL XAN – ‘FAIR’
Very pleasant flow here.
KYGO – ‘STRANGER THINGS’ feat. ONEREPUBLIC
Funny how this comes out this week, right?
SKEPTA – ‘GHOST RIDE’ feat. A$AP ROCKY, A$AP NAST
IDER – ‘BODY LOVE’
Ballad but with banger elements.
MORGAN SAINT – ‘FRIENDS’
Could be a Justin/Selena duet.
WALK THE MOON – ‘ONE FOOT’
This goes off a bit, you know.
TOM MISCH – ‘MOVIE’
This is very calming.
FLETCHER – ‘YOU SHOULD TALK’
Needs to be 40% more of a banger.
SIA – ‘SANTA’S COMING FOR YOU’
I’m sorry but what the actual fuck?
SAM SMITH – ‘ONE LAST SONG;
Good news everyone the Sam Smith album is terrible!!
That’s all for this week. Let’s hope next time we meet the Taylor Swift album has changed all our lives for the better.
