Drake, John Legend & Muni Long, FKA Twigs & More: Which New Music Release Is Your Favorite? Vote!
It’s new music Friday, which means there’s a fresh batch of new musical releases.
One hip-hop’s most prominent names returns with an unexpected album. Two R&B superstars team up for a powerful duet. A avant-garde artist also returns with a catchy track. Which was your favorite release?
Nine months after Certified Lover Boy‘s momentous arrival, Drake delivered another album with Honestly, Nevermind on Friday (June 17). His seventh LP, the Toronto rapper went against his usually well-calculated ways to announce the surprise album just mere hours before it landed on streaming services. Drizzy elected to keep his new full-length project shorter than his typically overstuffed albums with a modest 14 songs. People expecting a rap album are wrong, as Drizzy leans heavily on the house music scene and bars.

John Legend and Muni Long also joined forces for the jazz-infused collaboration “Honey.” Produced by Ryan Tedder, Steven Franks, Lindgren and Tommy Brown, “Honey” finds the “All of Me” singer and Long taking one verse apiece to riff about how addictively sweet their respective lovers are over groovy, slow jam guitar strums. The new song — which will appear on his forthcoming album, Honey — follows Legend’s May-released single “Dope,” which features J.I.D.
Meanwhile, FKA Twigs has dropped her latest song “Killer” through Atlantic Records. According to a news release, the song was written by Twigs and Jimmy Napes, Amanda Ghost, Jonny Coffer, and “explores heartbreak and a deep love that’s lethal,” The singer tells her story with delicacy and ample hooks, continuing the winning streak that her Caprisongs mixtape started earlier this year.
