Pusha T

On this week's Must-Hear Music podcast, special guest Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz stops by the Billboard office to talk about her return to Speedy with their excellent and endlessly listenable third album Twerp Verse after her solo detour as Sad13. Aside from talking about the differences between the two projects and the importance of consent, which factors heavily into the album track "Villain," Dupuis brings in three song recommendations for us: Alison Wonderland's "Cry" ft. Buddy, The Go! Team's "The Answer's No – Now What's the Question?" and Sieve's "Of course." Skip to the 32:52 to hear that.

Additionally, the Billboard podcast crew (this week: Joe Lynch, Lyndsey Havens and Tatiana Cirisano) talks about Drake's Daytona album, honing in on the highly personal "Santeria." We also talk about Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato's military-march feminist duet "Fall In Line," delve into one of the more adventurous tracks on J Balvin's Vibras, "Cuando Tu Quieras," weigh in on Courtney Barnett's chugging "Charity," chat Maggie Rogers' "Fallingwater" talk and NIKI's lovely, genre-flaunting "Newsflash!"
