Is there a more underrated rapper in the industry than Westside Boogie (formerly Boogie)? I’ve never heard less buzz around a rapper who delivered a highly critically-acclaimed debut album. His music’s being produced under Eminem to boot. This song featuring Joey Bada$$ is the musical version of that Spiderman pointing at Spiderman meme.

She’s a woman. She’s what one may consider attractive. That’s 92.7% of the battle of getting promoted by a major label and becoming popular in the US these days. In all fairness though, she appears to be decent and is not resorting to using her body like other female Hispanic Pop artists from New York (see Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez). Most importantly, this song is just catchy enough to earn her some attention as an artist on the rise.
A new pop/R&B artist to look out for. Nice light harmonic voice. A modern-day Brandy.
Radio-friendly Afrobeats + Reggaeton = Smash hit in the making.
I don’t care about the Grammys. But they are what they are. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of the underrated gems I’ve picked here was nominated for a Grammy. I held out on posting for a while, and this is one of the few great songs I’ve discovered and wanted to share from Spotify’s weekly New Music Friday playlist. Even without a video for it. Just a little proof that you can be sure to only find songs a cut above the rest here! Congratulations to this talented artist.
I still like the song they sampled here better, but Raye — and Rudimental — can do no wrong when it comes to house music.
These guys said it perfectly: Another French Club Banger. Impressed that Spotify added this to the American New Music Friday playlist. Been featuring select “Pop Urbaine” and French Trap hits here since ’17. And she is a superstar.
For me, she’s the best female rapper in the game. Is this her hottest single? Nah. But I love the way she raps. She captivates.
As I slodged through all the generic music released this on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, this actually saved me from falling asleep. It’s different. Jazzy-pop. Well done.
Very eclectic vibe.
Birdman’s been good for a quality single every year or two for the past 20 years. I like his style. He’s not gonna out-rap anybody. But he doesn’t need to. He has one of the best ears for music in the history of Hip Hop. This is a dope chill low-key vibe.
If you still listen to the radio, you’ll probably end up hearing it aloooooot. It’s a banger.
This beat hard.
Shocker: A new song that doesn’t sound generic and is actually pretty good. This is an artist to watch.
Here’s the video for a song I posted the day it came out.
Super-chic chill French Pop/Trap&B vibe that can be played anywhere.
One of the smoothest tracks I’ve heard all year. This could become their biggest single.
As of this date, this song has 755,699 plays on Spotify. I’m gonna predict it’s gonna hit 100 milli in the next three months.
