2. Future – I NEVER LIKED YOU
Future returns with his ninth studio solo album, “I Never Liked You.” The album arrives nearly two years after Future’s last solo release, 2020’s “High Off Life,” and serves as the Atlanta rapper’s first full-length project since he joined forces with Lil Uzi Vert in November 2020 for their collaborative project, “Pluto x Baby Pluto.” The 16-song project comes with a stacked lineup of guests, with two features from Drake as well as appearances from YSL’s Young Thug and Gunna on the same track, Kodak Black, Tems, and EST Gee.

3. Kehlani – Blue Water Road
The two-time Grammy Award-nominated singer and songwriter, Kehlani, releases “Blue Water Road,” the new LP dropped at the stroke of midnight collects 13 tracks, including the previously-released “altar,” “little story,” and “Up At Night,” featuring Justin Bieber. The singer’s latest effort is said to be an exploration of an “emotional, sexual and spiritual journey,” and features assists from Justin Bieber, Blxst, Jessie Reyez, Syd, and others.
Blue Water Road is the follow-up to 2020’s star-studded “It Was Good Until It Wasn’t,” which bowed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and led the Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart.

4. Giveon – Lie Again
Giveon tackles ugly truth on his new single, “Lie Again.” The track arrives with a bit of controversy as the R&B beef between Giveon and ex-girlfriend Justine Skye heats up. The pair were once—seemingly—a match made in music heaven, but it all came tumbling down in real-time as Skye suggested that Giveon was unfaithful. Things have remained relatively quiet between the two until recently, after Skye released her single “What a Lie” last Friday (April 22) and Giveon announced his new track, “Lie Again.” She later called him out.

5. Mahalia – In The Club
Mahalia pairs her new song with a music video she co-directed with Oliver Kane. Check out the new single, “In The Club” and music video below.
