We round up all of the biggest new songs that you should be listening to this week.

Another week, another Chris Brown drama. The RnB singer was arrested and then released on bail this week and alongside posting a ton of Instagram videos explaining himself, he put his message into the music. Have a listen to 'What Would You Do?'
Black Eyed Peas have released a star-studded remake of their classic 2003 single ‘Where Is The Love’. The updated version of their 'Elephunk' hit is called ‘#WHEREISTHELOVE’ (feat. The World) and includes a host of famous faces such as Puff Daddy, Cassie, Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx, Nicole Scherzinger and The Game.
Krept and Konan have released the music video for their new song ‘Dunya’, taken from the official Brotherhood movie soundtrack. The UK Hip Hop duo address the issue of racism in the powerful Noel Clarke-directed visuals, discussing the murders of unarmed black men in the US and creatively flipping the concept.
This week Stormzy previewed his next single titled 'Cold' by sharing a video of himself performing the track for the first time in Sweden. Listen to the Swifta Beaterproduced track above.
Usher's teamed up with Atlanta's very own, Future, for his latest slow jam 'Rivals'. The song was originally released as a Tidal exclusive but is now available to stream on Usher's YouTube page.
