As we patiently wait for all of tonight’s new music to be uploaded to our preferred streaming services, we’re looking back on some of our favorite new sounds from the last few weeks.

Every week, our staff gathers (virtually, of course) to put together a carefully-curated playlist with some of the best new songs to have released within the last month. With everything that has happened this year so far, music is one of the only high points that we can continually rely on. Even though the world is pretty trash right now, at least we can still look forward to all the new music releases at the end of each week.

This time around, we’ve updated the TIDAL Wave playlist with new music from the Griselda camp (Armani Caesar’s “Simply Done” and Conway’s “Lemon”), as well as all of the hottest new records from 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne, IDK and JID, Rick Ross, Aminé, and more.

Of course, we had to start you off with “WAP” from Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, arguably one of the biggest songs and videos of the entire year.

Take a look at the new playlist update, as well as our individual picks below. Don’t forget to sign up for a free 30-day trial to TIDAL here.
