Stay in the mix of what’s new every week with Our Generation Music’s Top 10 “Platinum Picks” from New Music Friday.
Jack Harlow — “Jackman”

Homixide Gang — “SNOT OR NOT”
The Opium duo returns with their first album of 2023, following up last year’s career-shifting Homixide Lifestyle with the 12-track SNOT OR NOT. With cover art consisting of an edit of Taylor Swift, Beno and Meechie create an aesthetic that’s all their own — further fleshing out the darkness of Opium altogether. With Destroy Lonely, Ken Carson and hopefully Playboi Carti following suit soon, Homixide Gang hits 1.000 in the lead-off spot for Opium.
Tony Shhnow — “LOVE STREAK“
grouptherapy. — “FUNK FEST”
Wolfacejoeyy — “Hues Vol. 2”
SURPRISE! Instead of dropping “Anita” like he originally announced, Wolfacejoeyy stunned fans with his previously teased EP, Hues Vol. 2. “Anita” is the lead track, of course, but never-before-heard cuts like “CDG” and “Lalala” showcase two different sides of Joeyy’s sound — blitzing, bass heavy rage and dancehall vibes galore. If it wasn’t clear before, know that Wolfacejoeyy is undeniably poised for stardom ahead of his first full-length album.
Tee Grizzley & Skilla Baby — “Controversy’
Summrs — “GHOST”
With two tracks starring his brother Desire, Summrs is making 20-plus long albums with no features a trend. His latest GHOST is a complete turnaround from STUCK IN MY WAYS, highlighted by tracks in “Meet You There,” “Munchkin,” “RIP Virgil” among others.
Tame Impala & Thundercat — “No More Lies”
A collaboration you never knew you needed, Tame and Thundercat roam the wild in their groovy new track “No More Lies.”

Rico Nasty is the queen of rage, as her new single “Turn It Up” raises the volume a few notches. This is her first track since dropping Las Ruinas in 2022. Now, the bombastic new wave queen continues RJ assert her reign as rap’s IT girl.
Glaive — “as if”
Glaive is the full blown popstar he was tracked to become since his 2019 debut Cypress Grove. Now, his latest single “As If” is a complete artistic ascension for the North Carolina singer-songwriter, who’s last album Old Dog, New Tricks continued his pop-leant takeover with all dogs go to heaven.
