18 New Songs, Albums and Remixes To Love In April 2018
3 April 2018, 17:14
Listen to the biggest songs you'll be hearing non-stop over April from the likes of The Weeknd, Cardi B, Tinashe, Rich The Kid and more.
As the winter months finally begin to feel like a distant memory (weather pending), April is ready and raring to serve up some wicked new songs for your transitional playlists.
The Weeknd treated us to the surprise six-track 'My Dear Melancholy' at the beginning of the month; a whimsical, introspective EP which draws many similarities to his early work.
April also sees the release of Cardi B's hotly anticipated debut album 'Invasion of Privacy'. Unlike The Weeknd's latest offering, we've been waiting for this one for quite a while now, so let's see what she's got planned.
Check out the biggest songs to drop this month below.
Drake - 'Nice For What'
The Weeknd - 'My Dear Melancholy' (EP)
Abel sent fans spinning after dropping his latest set of material. The hazy vibe reminds us of 'Kiss Land', the debut album that captured the ears and hearts of listeners worldwide back in 2013. Starboy has done it again!
Cardi B - 'Invasion of Privacy' (Album)
Almost a year since the release of her breakout smash hit 'Bodak Yellow', Cardi B has dropped her long-awaited debut album. Something tells us the Grammy-nominated rapper is in for another massive year.
Ne-Yo Feat. Bebe Rexha & Stefflon Don - 'Push Back'
Future summer floor filler alert! Ne-Yo is back with an island-tinged banger featuring the vocals of frequent chart-topper Bebe Rexha and British rap starlet Stefflon Don.
Tinashe Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana - 'Me So Bad'
Due to drop the follow-up to 2014's 'Aquarius' in a matter of weeks, Tinashe is back with another single from 'Joyride'. Hosting appearances from feature kings Ty and French, 'Me So Bad' is a bright, bubbly bop.
Kendrick Lamar & Dr. Dre - 'The Damn. Chronic'
The mentor and the protege link up! Well, not quite, but this epic album mash-up by DJ Critical Hype is a close match, blending Kung Fu Kenny's vocals with some of Dre’s most iconic instrumentals.
BlocBoy JB Feat. 21 Savage - 'Rover 2.0'
After his stratospheric launch into the mainstream with the Drake-assisted 'Look Alive', Memphis rapper BlocBoy JB hits back with a refresh of his hit 'Rover'. A guest verse from 21 Savage gives the track an '18 upgrade.
Joyner Lucas - 'Frozen'
Joyner's haunting new piece sends a powerful warning to drivers, detailing the dangers of reckless driving. The track is accompanied by a gripping - at times graphic - visual that sends a hard-hitting message.
Rich The Kid - 'The World Is Yours' (Album)
Already playing host to the platinum-selling Kendrick Lamar collaboration 'New Freezer', Rich The Kid's debut album is a star-studded affair. Guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Future, Khalid, Rick Ross, Chris Brown and many more put this record on heavy rotation.
Ty Dolla $ign Feat. Gucci Mane & Quavo - 'Pineapple'
Dolla comes through with another woozy summery future hitter. Featuring Gucci and Huncho, 'Pineapple' hears the trio trade bars over a easy beat between repetitions of an infectious hook.
Lady Leshurr - 'Black Panther'
The Lady is taking us all the way to Wakanda with her latest fiery freestyle. The Birmingham MC spits over a beat sampled from Missy Elliott's classic 'She’s A B*tch', which earned her praise from the icon herself!
Jessie Reyez Feat. Daniel Caesar - 'Figures, a Reprise'
As if the original wasn't dreamy enough, Jessie Reyez has enlisted the chops of fellow rising star - and fellow Toronto native - Daniel Caesar for a reprise of her smash hit 'Figures'.
Preme Feat. Lil Wayne - 'Hot Boy'
Young Money chief Wayne is throwing it back to his Cash Money era as he links up with Canadian rapper Preme. 'Hot Boy' sees the duo take a trip down memory lane over a smooth, flowing instrumental.
Davido Feat. Stefflon Don - 'Fia' (Remix)
There's no stopping Steff right now! The Brits Critics Choice finalist delivers a characteristically sweet yet attitude-drenched feature on Davido's sunny track 'Fia', melting their African and Caribbean sounds together perfectly.
Cash Money - 'Before Anythang' (Album)
Ahead of the release of the much anticipated Cash Money documentary, Birdman shared its star-studded soundtrack. Boasting features from Migos, Snoop Dogg, Young Thug and Gucci Mane to name a few, this is big.
Future - 'Going Absolutely Brazy'
Future has been teasing new music for months, and the 'Mask Off' hitmaker has finally unleashed a new bop. Along with a new accompanying music video comprised of tour footage, is the synth heavy track a hint of what's to come?
Tyler, The Creator - 'OKRA'
It's been almost a year since the rapper dropped his summer smash album 'Flower Boy', and Tyler The Creator is showing no signs of stopping. His latest bop, 'OKRA' is a bass-heavy surprise single that hits all the right notes.
Mike WiLL Made-It Feat. Pharrell Williams, Rae Sremmurd, Quavo & Big Sean - 'Aries (YuGo) Part 2' (Remix)
Mike WiLL Made-It and Rae Sremmurd are proving themselves to be somewhat of a dream team. The trio link up alongside Williams, Quavo and Big Sean on an instant refresh to the super producer's horoscope-inspired song.
