Best New Tracks: Drake, Denzel Curry x Ronny J, Tems and More

As the week in music comes to a close, Hypebeast has rounded up the best projects for the latest installment of Best New Tracks.

This week’s lineup is led by Drake, Denzel Curry with Ronny J and Tems, who each released the album For All the Dogs and the singles “WOO” and “Me & U,” respectively. Also joining this selection are offerings from Jay Rock, Maeta with Ambré, Earl Sweatshirt with The Alchemist, Aesop Rock, CZARFACE with Nems and NNAMDÏ with Big Baby Scumbag.

Drake – For All the Dogs

Drake’s highly-anticipated album For All the Dogs is almost a return to form; the album is an elevated version of his earlier catalog and almost combines the different eras of Drizzy together. The artist is true to his word when he teased the beloved line “They say they miss the old Drake, girl don’t tempt me” as part of the album’s promo, giving fans more than what could have been expected.

Denzel Curry x Ronny J – “WOO”

Denzel Curry and Ronny J reunite on “WOO,” the pair’s first release in years. “The ‘WOO’ session was good considering this is the first session Ronny J and I have done in years,” the rapper shares in a statement. “We brought in Chief Pound, who’s been an essential part of ULT from its conception and having PlayThatBoiZay on the record really shows the unity in Carol City.”

Tems – “Me & U”

Tems is back with her first single in two years, “Me & U.” The cut is produced by Guilybeatz and Tems and arrives with an accompanying music video shot in Malta and directed by the artist herself. “‘Me & U’ is about discovering the real me, building a genuine relationship with the Creator, and gaining a true perception of self,” she says of the track.

Jay Rock – “Ambition (Freestyle)”

Jay Rock follows up “Too Fast (Pull Over)” with his newest freestyle, “Ambition.” The cut hears the TDE OG touch on his focus on a new project and how he’s managed to craft such a long career. A new Jay Rock album is well overdue, and hopefully his recent sting of releases is a hint that the the successor to Redemption is on its way.

NNAMDÏ x Big Baby Scumbag – “You Can’t Tell Me Shit”

NNAMDÏ joins forces with Florida rapper Big Baby Scumbag for his newest track, “You Can’t Tell Me Shit.” Of the track, the artist says, “I wrote a lot of this song actually while traveling and commuting. Lyrically it’s just really things I wanted to say to people sometimes but I’d rather just chill and go on about my business lol. My homie Stephan had been listening to a lot of Big Baby Scumbag so we decided to reach out to him. I don’t do a lot of features but he really came with the heat! and quickly too! I’m always trying to do something different to keep myself entertained and this feels like a new expansion has been unlocked.”
