SOPHIE – It’s Okay to Cry
Intimate and sleek, “It’s Okay to Cry” is a can’t-miss pop song.

On the latest single from Injury Reserve, the group delivers a hard-hitting, off-kilter banger. Listen to “Boom (X3)” as well as the rest of their new record, Drive It Like It’s Stolen, for a refreshingly dark perspective into the Arizona hip hop trio’s character.
N.E.R.D – Lemon (feat. Rihanna)
Yes, you read that right: Iconic funk rock band, N.E.R.D., is back with a bubbly, energetic single featuring a badass verse from Rihanna.
Famous Dex – Pick It Up (feat. A$AP Rocky)
Famous Dex raps with lively aura over the bass-knocking instrumental laced with playful rhymes about his life of luxury. The joint-produced FKi and Sosa808 beat pivots once A$AP Rocky’s suave tone slides high-fashion references about his Acne Studios jacket from Sweden into his verse. The collab between the new-wave Soundcloud rapper and a rapper who made his mark with the 2011 release of Live.Love.A$AP proves that a triumphant song can be made between two musicians who have obvious generational differences.
King Krule – The Locomotive
King Krule returns to the name under which he established his musical career with a set of poignantly raw tracks on The OOZ. “The Locomotive” is a three-minute cut of swirling melodies and intoxicating riffs.
