Throughout the week, we update our Best New Songs playlist with the new releases that caught our attention the most, be it a single leading up to the release of an album or a newly unveiled deep cut. And each Monday, we round up the best new songs released over the past week (the eligibility period begins on Monday and ends Sunday night) in this segment.
This week, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion came through with what might just be the sexiest banger of the summer; Kelly Lee Owens shared a meditative, evocative new track with none other than John Cale; Filipino-British indie artist beabadoobee served up the grungy ‘Sorry’, the second from her upcoming album to make it to our Best New Songs playlist; SG Lewis released a sleek, effortlessly danceable new collaboration with Robyn and Chanel Tres; and the South-London based alternative R&B artist Sola delivered a sensual, dynamic new track with ‘Mami Wata’.
