Getting the right mix on your playlist is crucial for the midweek blues. The faces on public transport are a little paler, the commutes feel a little longer, and midmorning smiles dissipate like a cool autumn breeze.


We put together all the freshest tracks to get you through till Friday.


Track 1. | Yes Indeed – Lil Baby Feat. Drake

The bass slaps in the latest feature track from Drake as Lil’ Baby flexes on us with his Cartier glasses and yellow Ferrari. Weekly hype song – check.

Track 2. | 4 Gold Chains – Lil Peep Feat. Clams Casino

Lil Peep’s posthumous track has mellow vocals and slow, lurching beats. Clam Casino’s production got us feeling an alien abduction. Essential for those late night sessions.


Track 3. | Me & My – André 3000

André 3000 diverts from his usual style with this piece in this devotion to his late mother. The Mother’s Day drop features a piano-style ballad and provides a welcome change of pace.


Track 4. | Stargazing – Travis Scott

Travis debuted this song at Miami’s Rolling Loud, 2018. Scott brought the energy with this one, amping the crowd with a taste of his highly-anticipated upcoming album, Astroworld.


Track 5. | Stranger Things – Joyner Lucas

Joyner’s lyrics make this piece nothing but badass. Chris Brown’s falsetto is the sweetest contrast from Joyner’s voice, combining to make the perfect vocal concoction.


Track 6. | Lovely – Billie Eilish (featuring Khalid)

16-year-old Billie collabs with current R&B sensation Khalid; her raw approach gels within Khalid’s flowy melody, making this duet an instant playlist addition.


Track 7. | Roll (Burbank Funk) – The Internet

This track is the latest release we’ve heard from The Internet since 2015’s Ego Death. This single proves they haven’t lost their mojo, bringing us the same funk-R&B they left us with. The music video is worth a watch too, featuring the likes of Tyler, the Creator and Mac DeMarco.


Make sure to also get around Plaboi Carti’s debut, Die Lit.
