Keeping up with new music can be exhausting, even impossible. From the weekly album releases to standalone singles dropping on a daily basis, the amount of music is so vast it’s easy for something to slip through the cracks. Even following along with the Uproxx recommendations on a daily basis can be a lot to ask, so every Monday we’re offering up this rundown of the best music released in the last week.

This week saw the long-awaited debut EP from viral sensation Lil Nas X, as well as posthumous tracks from Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle. Yeah, it was a great week for new music. Check out the highlights below.

Lil Nas X — 7

Lil Nas X hasn’t been a star for long, but he’s already become one of the biggest. The most significant question mark surrounding him post-“Old Town Road” was if he had another hit in him. Based on 7 cuts like “Panini” and the Cardi B-featuring “Rodeo,” it sure seems like he does.

Last week, the first posthumous verse from Mac Miller came via a new The Free Nationals track, but he played more of a supporting role on the song. On his second posthumous song, 88-Keys’ “That’s Life,” Miller takes the lead. The upbeat, soulful instrumental is the perfect home for Miller, and he sings on the track, “Yeah, I know it seem a little bit strange sometimes, yeah yeah / Everybody live a little, everybody die, yeah yeah.”
