Happy New Music Friday – October 19, 2018!

Let’s take a break from **********, shall we?

On Fridays, music lovers are inundated with new songs and videos. Instead of posting about each item individually (the laziness is real), we figured a roundup would be best. Here’s this week’s New Music Friday highlights:

Future featuring Nicki Minaj – “Transformer” (Song)

Future and Juice WRLD’s new album, WRLD ON DRUGS, includes a track with Nicki Minaj titled “Transformer.” On it, Nicki goes in on these hoes (her words, not mine). “Four-four four albums in, pull a milli’ for a show / While these ******* is servin’ Milli Vanilli on the low,” she spits. “Spent my money on some dope, where my money envelope?” I don’t agree with all of Nicki’s recent antics, but there’s no denying she knows how to rap.

Cher Lloyd – “None Of My Business” (Video)

Cher Lloyd returns! The pop icon released a new song today titled “None Of My Business,” a breezy but fiery bop about low-key mocking your ex-boyfriend’s fizzling relationship with someone else. “Started at the top, and now you at the bottom,” Cher croons, “but baby… this is none of my business.” Revenge is sweet when you don’t even have to lift a finger, am I right? Listen to the Hitimpulse-produced track below:

Dua Lipa & BLACKPINK – “Kiss And Make Up” (Song)

Dua Lipa is the new collab queen, and she dropped another banger – this time with K-pop phenomenon, BLACKPINK. Their new track, “Kiss And Make Up,” is an electro-tinged banger that’ll inspire you to stop Netflixing and chill and be social for once. “We haven’t talked all morning. Bang my head, bang my head against the wall,” Dua sings in the intro. “Feeling we about to break up / Just wanna kiss and make up.”

Panic! At The Disco – “Hey Ya!” (Outkast Cover)

I didn’t see this coming, but I’m so glad it’s here. Listen to Panic!’s sparkly cover of Outkast’s hit song “Hey Ya!” recorded at the Spotify studios.

MØ – Forever Neverland (Album)

Believe it or not, MØ is one of the most-streamed female artists on Spotify. She’s pretty underrated, but hopefully the Danish singer’s new album, Forever Neverland, wakes the GP up. The 14-track album features frequent collaborator Diplo, as well as Charli XCX, Empress Of and What So Not & Two Feet. Start with “Blur.”

Happy New Music Friday!
