YBN Cordae & Anderson .Paak – RNP
The new video for RNP, the collaborative track by YBN Cordae & Anderson. Paak seems like the trailer for a new Netflix series set in the 1970s. Can you imagine a Netflix series with Anderson. Paak wearing an afro wig and a basketball outfit?
Bryony Jarman-Pinto – Sweet Sweet
Everyone needs the Bryony Jarman-Pinto’s gentleness. She is a giant talent but no one has noticed yet, despite her kindly vocal and the ability to match that with the most disparate influences. Hope that everyone realize that they need her gentleness.

Sudan Archives – Glorious
Sudan Archives is back with another single from her album Athena. Glorious arrives with a video that features her pet snake, a special representation of Athena: “He’s so sweet and cute, and he doesn’t want to hurt anybody, but everyone is afraid of him. I deal with that — men have told me, ‘You look intimidating’. Or someone will be like, ‘Smile!’ But I’m totally non-intimidating when you get to know me, I’m actually shy.”
Missy Elliott – DripDemeanor feat. Sum1
Directed by Elliott and Derek Blanks, the DripDemeanor clip is in perfect Missy style: the rapper sings with a crew of dancers wearing futuristic goth punk outfits.
