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 a surprise new project from Miley Cyrus, as well as the return of grime star Skepta. Yeah, it was a great week for new music. Check out the highlights below.
Mark Ronson — “Find U Again” Feat. Camila Cabello
Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello are no strangers to big-time pop hits, so it makes sense that a collaboration between the two would work well. The disco-inspired single has a heavy bass line and a strong hook that makes this one of the better crying-in-the-club songs this year. There’s even some indie cred here: Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker co-wrote the song.
Skepta — Ignorance Is Bliss
It’s been three years, but now one of grime’s kings has returned. The album was led by the single “Bullet From A Gun,” a bouncy track in which Skepta gets vulnerable, with lyrics like, “‘Cause like a bullet from a gun it burns / When you realize she was never your girl / It was just your turn / You got to face your demons, don’t matter how much money you earn.”
