So many artists, so many songs, so little time. Each week we review a handful of new albums (of all genres), round up even more new music that we'd call "indie," and talk about what metal is coming out. We post music news, track premieres, and more all day. We update a playlist weekly of some of our current favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.
DJ KHALED - "STAYING ALIVE" (ft. DRAKE & LIL BABY)
DJ Khaled is releasing a new album called God Did on August 26 via We The Best/Epic, and new single "Staying Alive" is an R&B duet between Drake and Lil Baby that interpolates The Bee Gees' hit of the same name.
REASON & THE GAME - "IMPALAS & HYDRAULICS"
Reason and The Game have teamed up for a love letter to West Coast hip hop.
JULS & SEVANA - "ONE MORE TIME"
UK-based Ghanaian Afrobeats producer Juls and Jamaican reggae/R&B singer Sevana put their heads together for this cross-continental, cross-genre collab. "I wrote this song about an ex that I couldn’t let go and wanted to f*ck one last time because I was lonely," Sevana says. "It is not a great feeling or a good place to be, but at least I channeled these feelings into a song."
MADONNA & SAUCY SANTANA - "MATERIAL GWORRLLLLLLLL!"
Florida rapper Saucy Santana has been everywhere lately. He made his late night TV debut on Fallon last night, playing his Latto-featuring hit "Booty," and he also recently performed his Madonna-inspired "Material Girl" with Madonna herself at NYC's Terminal 5. Now the two teamed up for an official new remix of the song.
BIG BOSS VETTE - "SNATCHED" (REMIX ft. FLO MILLI & SAUCY SANTANA)

JADA KINGDOM - "GPP"

SILVERSUN PICKUPS - "ALONE ON A HILL"
Silversun Pickups have shared the second single off their upcoming album Physical Thrills, and this one's an ethereal, climactic song fueled by a powerful vocal performance by bassist Nikki Moninger who says she was channelling her inner Kate Bush for this one.

YBN Nahmir reps his Alabama hometown with this moody new song.
PANIC! AT THE DISCO - "LOCAL GOD"

SHERYL CROW - "CIRCLES" (POST MALONE COVER)
"I'm such a fan of Post Malone’s songwriting," Sheryl Crow says of her new cover of his Hollywood's Bleeding track. "It's always fun to take a great song and put your own stamp on it!"
THE DARE - "GIRLS"
NYC's Harrison Patrick Smith cites the early-'00s as inspiration for his current project The Dare. "There was so much fluidity–the Maison Kitsune remix EPs, the DFA remixes of Le Tigre or The Rakes, Diplo remixing Bloc Party etc. There’s a feeling of optimism and openness in underground music from that time that I feel faded into genre camps again in the mid 2010s. I wanna bring that feeling back." You definitely get thoose early oughts vibes on The Dare's very cheeky "Girls."
HELLRAZOR - "HEAVEN'S GATE"
