Listen to the five biggest new songs to drop this week below.
Kendrick dropped a secret album of eight tracks he recorded in 2013 and 2014 that didn't make the final cut for his 'To Pimp A Butterfly.' One of the tracks was (believe it or not) produced by Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys 5year old son, Egypt.
A collaboration that encompasses the two rappers' hometowns (2 Chainz is from College Park Georgia and Lil Wayne From Hollygrove, New Orleans), the pair teamed up for 'Collegrove' and released it on Friday (4th March). The collaborative project is made up of 13 tracks, including the single 'Rolls Royce Weather Every Day.'
Tinie Tempah has dropped new track 'Girls Like' with Swedish singer Zara Larsson who featured on MNEK's track 'Forget You'. The song is reportedly the first from Tinie's new album, due to be released later this year.
The grime duo have debuted their new track 'Allow me' in this brand new video. The track is from Tinchy’s upcoming fourth album '360º/The Cloud 9' which is due to be released this April.
