Stormzy – “HIDE & SEEK”: Stormzy dropped his single ‘Hide & Seek’, as the first preview of his upcoming third album ‘This Is What I Mean’. ‘This Is What I Mean’, the follow-up to 2019’s ‘Heavy Is The Head’, and will debut November 25.

Haywood – “You And Me”: This is one of my favourite songs off Haywoods new album ‘Pressure On My Heart’. From the lyrics to production, it’s pin point perfect in every way. Be sure to add this song and album to your playlists.

Dagny – “Highs & Lows”: Norwegian pop singer, Dagny dropped a heartfelt new track called “Highs & Lows”. The track arrives in the wake of a busy summer of festival appearances and a run of sold-out headline shows for the singer. “Highs & Lows” follows the release of recent standalone song “Brightsider” and is the latest song to be released before she begins work on her much-anticipated second full length album.

Marcus Mumford – “Cannibal”: Marcus Mumford, best known as the lead singer of Mumford & Sons, has opened up publicly for the first time about his harrowing experience of child abuse. Recollections of his past directly became his solo single called “Cannibal” from his album Self-Titled.

Cautious Clay – “Burning Up Slow”: Due for release this month, Cautious Clay has announced his new EP ‘Thin Ice on the Cake’ with new single ‘Burning Up Slow’.

“I’ve always loved working with juxtapositions in my music”, Cautious says. “Conceptually ‘Thin Ice on the Cake’ relates to being on the edge of something really bad as we grow nearer to death, but birthdays are also about celebrating the positives and joys of life. The cake is a great symbol of that. ‘Burning Up Slow’ is all about enjoying the ride.”

Demi Lovato – “4 Ever 4 Me”: “4 EVER 4 ME” is the closing track on Demi Lovato’s eighth studio album, HOLY FVCK. The powerful end to the Punk-Rock album describes Lovato’s resilience in getting back up once again to fall in love; this time, perhaps, forever. She opened up to Apple music recently and spoke about the song;

“I wrote it, and my whole heart is in that song. I actually haven’t written love songs in a long time. Like, I don’t think ther— If I go through my catalogue, there’s maybe like three or four love songs in the past few albums. […] But actually writing a song about “Hey, I’m in love with you; I found it,” like, that has not existed in a lot of my music. […] I started feeling these feelings and I was like, “I have to get them out of my chest.”

Hailee Steinfeld ft. Anderson .Paak – “Coast”: This is a song by American singer and actress Hailee Steinfeld, which she released on July 29th. The song features Anderson .Paak, and is Steinfeld’s first release in two years since her 2020 EP Half Written Story.

John Legend – Wonder Woman: John Legend returns to a topic that’s dear to his heart: his wife, Chrissy Teigen. In this song, he explains why: She’s always there to lift him up. The title has a double meaning. Teigen makes Legend wonder how she does it, but she’s also his superhero.

Rema and Selena Gomez – “Calm Down”: this is a song by Nigerian singer Rema, from his debut studio album Rave & Roses. The song charted across Europe, reaching number one on the Belgian Ultratop 50, Dutch Top 40 and Dutch Single Top 100. It wasn’t long after a remix of the song with American singer Selena Gomez was released on 25 August 2022. The new version reached number one on the Billboard US Afrobeats Songs chart and peaked at number 7 on the Global 200 chart.

Sam Tompkins – “Lose It All”: Sam Tompkins premiered his new single “Lose It All” on BBC Radio 1 by Jack Saunders. The Brighton-based star is one of the fastest rising British Male artists globally and he’s an artist who focusses on pure emotion. This song is definitely one that has to be added to your playlists.

Ty Dolla $ign & Mustard – “My Friends” (feat. Lil Durk): Ty Dolla $ign and producer DJ Mustard have always made sure fire hits when they’ve collaborated, now they bring their “My Friends” song to life in their new video alongside Lil Durk.

WILLOW – “curious/furious”: ‘curious/furious’ follows the release of two previous singles, ‘<maybe> it’s my fault’ and ‘hover like a GODDESS’, which are all taken from the album <COPINGMECHANISM>.
