It's New Music Friday, and Billboard's First Stream Live podcast is breaking down a full slate of new releases from Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande, Sam Smith and more.

Co-hosts Chelsea Briggs and Fernando Ventura chat about the start of a new era of music for Lipa with the release of her funky new single "Don't Start Now," plus the Ariana Grande-helmed soundtrack to Charlie's Angels -- which includes "Bad to You," the superstar's collaboration with Normani and Nicki Minaj.

Elsewhere in Friday's episode (Nov. 1), Sam Smith tides fans over with their cover of Donna Summer's 1997 classic "I Feel Love," Miranda Lambert pushes the boundaries of country on eighth album Wildcard, and Normani drops even more "Motivation" with a 21 Savage-assisted remix.
