This week, Tyler, The Creator released a great new single, and Pharrell Williams produced an impressive track from rapper Vic Mensa.
Here are the 5 best songs from the past week that you can stream right now:
Tyler, The Creator — “Boredom”
An upbeat single from Tyler, The Creator’s upcoming album, “Scum F— Flower Boy,” “Boredom” features singers Corinne Bailey Rae and Anna of the North, and it sounds incredible in a good pair of headphones.
Arcade Fire — “Electric Blue”
“Electric Blue” is the first semi-tolerable single from Arcade Fire’s upcoming LP, “Everything Now.” Sung entirely in a piercing falsetto by singer Régine Chassagne, the song is a stirring electronic ballad.
Rob Markman — “I Don’t Wanna Wait”
The debut rap single from veteran hip-hop journalist Rob Markman is a bleak, profound, and inspiring manifesto about his come-up on the streets of Brooklyn.
