New Music Releases: Childish Gambino, John Hopkins, Skepta and More

It’s never been easier to access high quality music from all different artists whether it be from an established superstar, or an artist on the rise. It’s our job to find some the best songs and bring them to you to help kickstart your weekend. Here’s what we found this week.

New Music To Rock To:

Childish Gambino, “This Is America”

As if it weren’t enough to double as host and musical guest of SNLChildish Gambino also performed brand new music, at the same time. “This Is America” displays Gambino’s rapping and singing ability while the song toggles between gospel hymns, and staccato rap verses. The song also features ad-libs from, 21 Savage, Young Thug, Quavo, Slim Jxmmi, and Bloccboy JB, a versatile selection of raps burgeoning superstars. The choreography in the video is also done beautifully, with intent to send a message.

John Hopkins, “Singularity”

This english based producer is a frequent collaborator with Brian Eno, and he’s also assisted Coldplay and David Holmes with different projects as well. He recently released his fifth studio album Singularity to positive reception from the electronic music world.

Skepta, “Pure Water”

It’s been a long time since we’ve gotten a full-length project from Skepta. We did get Vicious, a shorter length EP on Halloween to celebrate the UK rapper’s favorite holiday but he’s been pretty quiet since. On “Pure Water’ he bursts back on the music scene with a vengeance, letting his peers now he’s here to stay, even though he might have been queiet for a bit. Hopefully this is a sign that new more music from him is coming soon.

Leon Bridges, “Forgive You”

This soul artist from Texas is getting bigger and bigger. He just released his second studio album Good Thing and it’s projected to outsell americas favorite rap duo’s, Rae Sremmurd third album, SR3MM. On this song Bridges gives off some of the classic old school vibes we have grown to expect from him.

Travis Scott ft. Lil Uzi Vert and Kanye West, “Watch”

One of the most anticipated albums of the year is Travis Scott’s Astroworld and while there are still no signs of a release date, we get the first solo single the artist has released since “Butterfly Effect”. With the help of rap king, Kanye West and one of raps princes, Lil Uzi Vert you would think this song would be world changing. The rap verses leave something to be desired, but the song production is what really shines on this track. The world is also a better place when Kanye is rapping and not sending out mindless tweets every minute.

What songs will you be listening to this weekend? Let us know.
