From Drake hopping on a track by Nigerian artist Wizkid to Austin Mahone's dirty, funky reinvention, it's an unexpected bunch of songs on this week's Must-Hear Music podcast.

Teen pop idol Mahone is growing up quick, and unlike many who attempt to mature on wax, he actually succeeds with the surprisingly sprightly "Dirty Work." Conversely, Lana Del Rey continues to mine the sounds that made her popular with "Honeymoon," a sweeping, cinematic tune that works even if its six-minute length drags.

We also talk about Minneapolis trio On an On's the xx-esque "Behind the Gun," Ghostface Killah's "Death's Invitation" with Adrian Younge, and yet another winning song from rising rapper Kari Faux, "Nada."

Plus: We listen to one of the remixes Drake premiered on his debut Beats1 radio show, "Ojuelegba" from Wizkid featuring Skepta and Drake.
