Stay in the mix of what’s new every week with Our Generation Music’s Top 10 “Platinum Picks” from New Music Friday.
Metro Boomin — “Across The Spider-Verse”
Gunna — “bread & butter”
Over a year since his last official album, DS4EVER, Gunna returns in grand fashion with the stark “bread & butter” — a brooding trap cut accompanied by a scathing black-and-white visual. Immersive and captained by YSL’s premier protégé, Gunna’s comeback is stamped with his trademark fleeting bars and atmospheric energy alike.
The Weeknd, Madonna, Playboi Carti — “Popular”
Teased during The Idol‘s premiere at Cannes Film Festival in May, The Weeknd, Playboi Carti and Madonna prove why being “Popular” isn’t all that it seems to be. Cinematic and characteristic of Abel’s foray into television, the track’s summery pop allure feeds into Carti’s 4-bar hook and OG popstar Madonna’s sweetly sung verse. While the Opium head’s involvement may be scarce, it uplifts the track into a new space entirely. “Popular” is the second single off ‘The Idol’ album, which is confirmed for release on June 30.
Kid Cudi — “PORSCHE TOPLESS”
Kenny Mason — “DRACULA”
Joony — “SHITUMSS (Deluxe)”
TyFontaine — “It Gets Better”
On the anniversary of his debut album Ascension, TyFontaine further leads in the acclaimed album’s anticipated sequel with its second single “It Gets Better.” Cop the anniversary edition of Ascension on vinyl here.
Wolfacejoeyy — “I Think You Like Me”
Off the heels of his latest EP hues, vol. 2, Wolfacejoeyy keeps applying pressure with another long-teased bop “I Think You Like Me.” The Staten Island emcee, dubbed “pinkpantheress” for the boys, continues an infectious streak of addicting tracks — evident on his latest can’t-miss performance.
