There’s plenty more to hear, so keep reading for the internet’s best list of singles released on the week ending on Friday (April 15) below.
Kay Flock f. Cardi B, Dougie B & Bory300 – “Shake It”
Don’t tell New York Mayor Eric Adams: Drill music is back. Some will say that the genre never faded, but following the loss of Pop Smoke the Chicago-originated sound dissipated. Thanks to a few promising new rookies like Kay Flock, the scene is reinvigorated.
On “Shake It,” the young MC recruits industry veteran Cardi B, Dougie B and Bory300 for a song that’s sure to soundtrack the Five Boroughs all summer long.
Tyga & Doja Cat – “Freaky Deaky [R3HAB Remix]”
After a bizarre spat with her Paraguayan fans this past March, which led to Doja Cat’s brief retirement from music, the “Get Into It (Yuh)” multi-hyphenate has linked with Tyga and DJ/Producer R3HAB for the official “Freaky Deaky” remix.
The Moroccan-Dutch DJ’s remix breathes more life into the Dancehall-inspired production. As Tyga surfs across the pitter-patter of drums with a smooth flow, Doja not only handles the hook but drops a quick pop-forward verse as well.
Blueface & G Herbo – “Street Signs”
Tunji Ige f. Lancey Foux – “IMA ARTIST NOT A SOCIALITE”
Gucci Mane – “Serial Killers”
Michael Suavé f. The Game – “Type of Time (Remix)”
Minnesota artist Michael Suavé is pumping life back into his 2020 track “Type of Time,” which originally appeared on his album No Distractions, with help from legendary Los Angeles rapper The Game.
The Game, who’s Hit-Boy produced album is on the way, adds a splash of West Coast flavor to the dark sounds of Suavé’s raps. The perfect song for hot summer night drives, “Type of Time (Remix)” is a must-listen.
Duke Deuce f. Dante Smith – “Running Out Of Love”
G Perico f. Curren$y – “Bacc To The Blocc”
Be sure to stream this week’s Honorable Mentions consisting of Marlon Craft’s “Cocky Humble,” Day Sulan’s “Gravity” and “On A Tee” by SpotemGottem and Icewear Vezzo.
