Carly Rae Jepsen, Tyler the Creator, Halsey & More: Must-Hear Music Podcast

Carly Rae Jepsen

It's an insanely stacked new music Friday on this week's Must-Hear Music podcast. Not only is it #DedicationDay – the day we celebrate the release of Carly Rae Jepsen's new album Dedication, including the Natalie Cole-meets-Cyndi Lauper vibes of Electric Guest collab "Feels Right" – but Tyler, the Creator is back with Igor, one of the most impressive releases of 2019 that sees him continuing to evolve by leaps and bounds (we focus on the N.E.R.D.-y "I Think").

Also: Halsey dips into her alt-rock roots on the raw, relevant "Nightmare," which seems especially fitting for this week (the line "'Come on little lady give us a smile' / I got nothing to smile for" rings too true at the moment), and DJ Khaled steps back to allow the Nipsey Hussle to shine on "Higher," which features the late rapper and John Legend.

Plus, we chat the synth-heavy "Move!" from NIKI and the uplifting sludge rock of Torche's "Slide."
