New Music Friday (Dec. 27) feels like Christmas Day all over again, with your favorite artists delivering more earworms as streaming stocking stuffers.
These belated gifts include Travis Scott‘s Jackboys project, a seven-track “pack” with his Cactus Jack label signees Don Toliver and Sheck Wes. Jackboys cleverly taps Scott’s beloved collaborators Young Thug (“Out West”) and Migos‘ Quavo and Offset (“Had Enough”), and it features a dynamite multilingual remix of his Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit “Highest in the Room” feat. Rosalía and Lil Baby.
Even though Ariana Grande‘s Sweetener world tour wrapped up last week in Los Angeles’ The Forum, she had something special for fans to unwrap: the live tour album titled K Bye For Now (SWT Live) — a snippy shorthand that only Grande could pull off. Her first live album jam-packed her new and old hits dressed with her signature riffs, runs and other vocal flourishes.
Kanye West brought his Sunday Service straight to streaming services after the Choir released their 19-track LP on Christmas Day timely titled Jesus Is Born. And after its 30-second snippets were clipped together for viral fan dance videos on Twitter, “All Me” by Kehlani feat. Keyshia Cole finally dropped, and fans already had the lyrics nailed.
