New Music Friday: Ella Mai, De La Soul, J.I.D. & Lute and more
It’s Grammys week, but there’s still new music to listen to. Here’s some of the latest songs/albums to come out.
Ella Mai, Heart on My Sleeve (Deluxe Edition) — The extended version of Ella’s sophomore album includes three new tracks: “2 O’Clock,” “This Is” and “Our Song.”
J.I.D. & Lute, “Ma Boy” — The Dreamville stars teamed up for the first single off the Creed IIIsoundtrack. On the song, the rappers discuss the hardships they overcame to get to where they are now.
NLE Choppa, “Champions” — The rapper honored the life of Tyre Nichols, who was killed in Memphis last month. His single pays tribute to all those in the city and urges them to keep pushing despite any struggles. “I feel like this song can speak volumes to us [with motivation], but really resonate with those who don’t know what life has for them,” he said.
De La Soul, “Eye Know” — The group’s released the single on streaming platforms, as well as an HD version of the original video. Their first six albums will be available on DSPs starting next month.
PinkPantheress ft. Ice Spice, “Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2” — The rapper adds her Bronx flair to the song originally released last year on Pink’s Take Me Home EP. “Even though Ice Spice does drill, her flows are super unique and the beats she chooses are different,” PinkPatheress told NME. “A lot of people would struggle with the beats I choose, but I knew she’d be good for it.”
