As Ella Mai celebrates her 2018 debut single, “Boo’d Up,” being certified seven-times platinum, she dropped her new single, “DFMU,” on Friday. This is the Grammy winner’s first single since “Not Another Love Song” in 2020. In the video, the English singer takes a ride with her man, and they make love in the back seat. The car literally submerges in a body of water, and Ella swims to safety.

Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J are collaborating again as they dropped their new single, “Backseat,” featuring Project Pat. The track is from the upcoming joint album from Khalifa and the Three 6 Mafia member which is scheduled to be released in February. The duo dropped “Pop That Trunk” in December, and previously recorded together on “Gah Damn High” off Juicy’s The Hustle Continues album in 2020. 

NBA Youngboy is not allowing his house arrest in Utah to stop his creativity as he awaits trial for weapons charges. He dropped his 17th mixtape, Colors, on January 20, and now he’s collaborated with Da Baby for the video for their new track, “Hit.”

Finally, Quavo has followed up his 2021 “Strub Tha Ground” collabo with Yung Miami with his new song, “Shooters Inside My Crib.” The track is expected to be on the Migos member’s long-awaited follow-up to Quavo Huncho, his 2018 debut solo album. Quavo says his second solo project will drop later this year.
