Here’s this weeks’ rundown of new music from some of your favorite artists in the game.

Aitch, Ashanti – Baby

Aitch turns a feel-good R&B classic into a new age love story with “Baby.” Sampling Ashanti’s global smash hit “Rock Wit U (Aww Baby),” the Manchester rapper leans on his trademark flow to depict a relationship that’s on the rocks. A series of misunderstandings amongst lovers gives rise to Aitch’s smooth-talking rhymes, trying his best to mend the problem at hand with reassurance. This new track welcomes listeners to enjoy the nostalgia brought on by his sonics, proving that the BRIT-nominated MC is bound to have another standout year in music.

Shenseea – ALPHA

Shenseea releases her highly-anticipated debut album, ALPHA. Anchored in dancehall, hip-hop, and pop, this project is a unique reflection of the Jamaican songstress’ natural ear for melody and rhyme scheme. The album includes guest verses from the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, 21 Savage, Offset, Sean Paul, Beenie Man, and Tyga. Shenseea is a luminary in dancehall who’s capable of crafting well-received anthems across genres, forging her own path in music as an artist with international appeal.

Omar Apollo – Killing Me

Ahead of his debut album IVORY, due April 8th via Warner Records, Omar Apollo shares a new single from the project, “Killing Me.” This song sounds like heartache, exploring the many nuances of love through bilingual melodies. In support of his forthcoming album, Omar is gearing up for a 29-date Desvelado tour kicking off this Spring. His ability to reconcile with pain has contributed to the Indiana songbird’s constant evolution as an artist.

Pink Siifu – GUMBO’! (DELUXE’!!)

Pink Siifu returns with ten new tracks to accompany his GUMBO’! (DELUXE’!!) project. After releasing his critically-acclaimed album exclusively on bandcamp last week, he delivers the extended version across all streaming platforms while on tour. The deluxe inks new features from Zelooperz, Valee, Remy Banks, and more, in addition to enlisting Kenny Beats for production credit among others. Siifu’s didactic flow permeates the work, proving that authenticity is alive and well today in rap.

Fat Money – Introskii

Fat Money is on some other shit with new single “Introskii.” His wordplay-led approach creates a palpable sense of understanding for everyday life in Chicago, painting a picture of bloodshed and drill over a high-energy Cardo Got Wings instrumental. As he reintroduces himself in a nonchalant fashion, Fat Money reflects on his come up and past struggles. Lately, he’s been busy catching the attention of the industry, in route to becoming a formidable force amongst his rap contemporaries.
