Welcome to ‘Top 10 Tracks’, the essential weekly round-up of the best new music.

Welcome to ‘Top 10 Tracks’, the essential weekly round-up of the best new music.

At the end of each week, we count down the ten essential new tracks you need in your rotation. Ranging from rappers in the Emerald Isle to boundary-pushing, experimental producers and everything in between, it’s all hits, no filler.

This week sees Brockhampton’s Merlyn share a solo track, Cork based rapper and spoken word artist Salamay drop an intimate new offering and Beyoncé returns with a brand new single.

Beyoncé Be Alive

It’s always a good day when Beyoncé shares new music and ‘Be Alive’ comes as part of the soundtrack for the forthcoming motion picture ‘King Richard’.


Merlyn Wood S.Y.K Feat. CONNIE

It’s been years since Merlyn has dropped a solo single and until now, it’s been hard to imagine what he’d sound like outside of the Brockhampton universe. He’s not wasting anytime in creating a world of his own on ‘S.Y.K’ which sounds like he’s rapping over a spacecraft exhaust pipe in the best way possible.


Rainy Miller Death at a TV Dinner

Melding together the digital and organic, Preston born artist Rainy Miller captures the insignificance of daily life in ‘Death at a TV Dinner’.


Fana Hues Pieces

We were instantly enamoured by Fana Hues’ feature on Tyler, The Creator’s ‘SWEET / THOUGHT YOU WANTED TO DANCE’, and her latest solo offering ‘Pieces’ maintains her hot streak of serving intimate cuts with plenty of replay value.



An ode to the lost souls, BERWYN’s ‘MIA’ comes to life over tight drummer boy snare rolls and comes off the back of his mixtape, TAPE2/FOMALHAUT.



Dublin based singer F3miii is losing sleep over mixed signals in ‘NICE TO KNOW’. Play this one loud.


KhakiKid Cozy

KhakiKid is yet to miss this year. Gearing up for the release of a new EP in 2022, he’s shared ‘Cozy’ which sees him co-sign pop culture heroes from Zack and Cody to Joji. Make sure to peep the surreal video too.


Smino I Deserve (w/NOS.)

Smino really is one of a kind. On ‘I Deserve It‘ he makes the rockiest of emotions sound so damn smooth.


Salamay Take It Easy

One of a number of standouts from the Cork-based artist’s debut EP.


Silk Sonic After Last Night(With Thundercat & Bootsy Collins)

Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak, Thundercat and Bootsy Collins? Need I say much more. This cut is smooth as butter.
