If there was ever a week where distraction was needed, this was the one. The 2020 presidential election largely brought music output to a halt, but thankfully New Music Friday has some fresh heat to give fans a much-needed break from following the fate of our nation.

The producers are well represented this week with Mike WiLL-Made-It and Murda Beatz dropping off new bangers. Elsewhere, highlights include Nicki Minaj and YoungBoy Never Broke Again trading bars, Big Sean connecting with Fivio Foreign and Mulatto hopping on a track with Mr. “Most Expensivest Shit” himself, 2 Chainz. That is where we start.
