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 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 new album from Schoolboy Q, a record from Kevin Morby that should be among the year’s best, and an FKA Twigs track that makes use of both her incredible voice and her unparalleled taste. Yeah, it was a great week for new music. Check out the highlights below.
Schoolboy Q — Crash Talk
Schoolboy Q could have released his new album last year, but the death of friend Mac Miller resulted in him waiting until he was mentally prepared to promote his new effort. Now the time has come, and Q is hoping the wait was worth it. Travis Scott, Lil Baby, 6lack, YG, Kid Cudi, and 21 Savage all turn up on the effort.
