As with every other New Music Friday, here are the newest musical releases to drop this week.

SaweetieThe Single Life — The rapper opens about “the single life” she’s been living since her breakup with rapper Quavo. Featuring six songs, including lead single “Don’t Say Nothin’,” Saweetie says the album is her “testimony as a single woman and what I’ve been through, the good and the bad.”

Pharrell & Travis Scott, “Down in Atlanta” — After teasing fans on social media, Pharrell and Travis Scott have reunited for this collaboration. A lyric video dropped, but an official music video could be on the horizon.

Fetty Wap, “Sweet Yamz” — The rapper adds his twist to a song he likes, Masego and Devin Morrison‘s “Yamz.” “I really connected with the original song ‘Yamz’ from the first time I heard it earlier this year,” he says. “It makes me think of one of my favorite cities, Miami. I immediately knew I wanted to flip it and had to do a Zoomix!”

Lil Uzi Vert, “Just Wanna Rock” — The single, which went viral thanks to a TikTok dance challenge, now has a music video. In it, Uzi and his crew flaunt their dance moves at the party, then in the streets outside the venue. Police attempt to rain on their parade but are unable to; Uzi then makes off with their police truck. The video features TikTok and dance influencers, including the creator of the aforementioned dance challenge.

Among the other releases this week are Gucci Mane‘s “Letter to Takeoff,” Chris Brown‘s holidays singles “It’s Giving Christmas” and “No Time Like Christmas,” a video for Young Dolph‘s “Get Away” and a visualizer for “YAH Know” — Chance the Rapper‘s single featuring King Promise.
