Read all the way through or make your way to the bottom for the full Spotify playlist of our Friday discoveries.
Missing Out – Syd
Syd is back! It’s been a while since we’ve gotten original music from The Internet’ frontwoman, but we have finally been blessed with new music from the R&B sensation. As her first release since 2019, “Missing Out” is a chilled out, emotional track that includes Syd’s classic subdued vocals, laid back beat, and lo-fi synths. We cannot wait to hear more new music from one of our all-time favorites!
CRY – Jon Batiste
New Orleans based artist Jon Batiste always invokes strong emotions and reels you in with his unique voice and insane piano skills. “Cry” feels like it could’ve been made over 50 years ago with its authentic New Orleans sound making this an immediate new age classic.
How Much Can A Heart Take – Lucky Daye (ft. Yebba)
Lucky Daye released his full album, Table For Two, today and it is wonderful. One of our favorite tracks, “How Much Can A Heart Take,” sees Lucky team up with rising superstar singer, Yebba, who’s voice can melt your heart. Their voices team up to create some incredible and emotional vocal harmonies. (Full album continued below)
Relapse. – Gallant
The world feels more right now that we’re receiving new music from R&B singer Gallant. On his new track, “Relapse.,” Gallant sensually sings on top of an ethereal, laid back beat. This song is definitely made for loving and we are loving it for sure. Here’s to hoping these songs are leading to a full length album!
Eyes Without A Face (Poolside Remix) – Billy Idol
Who knows how this new remix of an old classic by Billy Idol came about, but we are loving it. Beach-y electronic artist Poolside gives his take of Billy Idol’s “Eyes Without A Face.” He brings a groove that gives a new feel to the classic song making it ready to be listened to while lounging back on a warm day.
Pro Bad Decision Maker – Skizzy Mars
Skizzy Mars has been slowly growing over the last few years after he first blew up in the mid 2010’s. His new track “Pro Bad Decision Maker,” is an impressive new track that has the original feel to Skizzy’s music that will make you feel like you’re back in the prime of your life during a summer adventure. Hoping he’ll continue to release vibey tracks like this over the coming year.
U Know Baby – Todd Terry
Todd Terry goes back to his roots on this one and gives us that 90’s New York style jacking house that would get everyone moving for hours whether it was club or house, as long as there was a dance floor. For a good reference to this style of music we suggest you check out “Todd Terry’s track IDs” playlist on Spotify.
Album Table For Two – Lucky Daye
Lucky Daye’s new album is delectable and wonderful. Recruiting incredible R&B singing talent like Yebba & Ari Lennox, Lucky creates an album that is a relaxed vibe perfect for driving around town. Some of our favorite tracks besides the above one include “On Read (ft. Tiana Major9),” “Access Denied (ft. Ari Lennox),” & “Falling In Love (ft. Joyce Wrice).”
Album Judas and the Black Messiah: The Inspired Album – Various Artists
This powerful movie about Fred Hampton’s life and murder has a very important soundtrack by some of the best Black musicians in America right now. Judas and the Black Messiah comes out today and if it’s anything like the accompanying album, it’s sure to be amazing. Some of the incredible artists featured on the album include A$AP Rocky, H.E.R., Nipsey Hussle, Nas, Jay-Z, JID, and many more.
