Tyler, The Creator's new song "Lumberjack" has topped this week's new music poll.

Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (June 18) on Billboard, choosing the 30-year-old rapper's latest track as their favorite new music release of the past week.

"Lumberjack," which will be featured on Tyler's forthcoming album, Call Me If You Get Lost, brought in nearly 37% of the vote, beating out new music by H.E.R. (Back of My Mind), DaBaby ("Ball If I Want To"), Leon Bridges ("Why Don't You Touch Me"), and others.

"Lumberjack" seemingly masquerades as a straightforward rap song flexing fame and fortune. But a closer looks reveals that it's an irrepressible Tyler tune, with ad-libs from DJ Drama and outlandish wordplay.

Call Me If You Get Lost, Tyler's sixth album, is scheduled for release on June 25. The hip-hop star's last album, Igor, was released in 2019 and featured "Earfquake," which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Igor also won the Grammy for best rap album in 2020.

Placing second on the past week's tally with nearly 23% of the vote was H.E.R.'s engrossing new album, Back of My Mind. The R&B star's debut full-length spans 21 tracks and features appearances by Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Baby, Thundercat, Chris Brown, DJ Khaled, and others.

On the set, she explores new terrain as a vocalist, particularly on ballads like the yearning “My Own” and the wounded “Mean It.”
