Staff Picks Playlist new music

This week's playlist update features new music from Lil Nas X, Smiley, EST Gee, Trippie Redd, Pop Smoke, Isaiah Rashad, Belly, Yung Bleu, Dave, and more.

It seemed as though Kanye West was all set to release his tenth studio album, titled DONDA, following his internet-breaking event at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, but those plans fell apart when it was revealed that the world would need to wait an additional two weeks to hear the full body of work. As we waited though, it's not like we were left with subpar music. Last week saw more than enough quality releases to keep us entertained until DONDA officially arrives on streaming platforms, and we're shining a light on all of our favorites with this week's playlist update.

At the start of every week, our editorial staff looks over all of the previous week's releases (as well as those from weeks prior) to get you a playlist complete with all of our favorite songs from the last month and a bit. Last week's highlights included Lil Nas X's music video for "INDUSTRY BABY" with Jack Harlow, Yung Bleu's new album Moon Boy, Dave's sensational new album, and more, which we've included in the playlist below.

If you're interested in seeing which writer picked which songs, scroll down to see our individual picks. Enjoy this week's playlist update and be sure to subscribe to our pages on SoundCloud and TIDAL.
