Blxst x Remble – “child of GOD”

Blxst enlists Remble for his latest cut “child of GOD,” with the artist describing Remle’s feature as one that “highlights the dichotomy of good and evil.” He continues, “We’re both speaking from a perspective of imperfection, we’re born sinners and we’re touching on that in a tasteful way. This song is embracing that fact, being imperfect makes you a child of God, makes us all human, makes us all relatable.”

Jamila Woods x duendita – “Tiny Garden”

Jamila Woods announces her first album in four years, Water Made Us, with the single “Tiny Garden” featuring duendita. “Tiny Garden is a song about the way my heart works, the slow and steady way I love,” she says in a statement. In my directorial debut I wanted to create a visual representation of how I often feel in relationships, like I’m having huge feelings that I end up expressing in small specific ways. The video takes place across two landscapes, the reality of a shared apartment at the tail end of winter and an imagined “heartspace” where everything is lush and green. I worked with my friend and frequent collaborator Po Chop on the choreography, so that the movement becomes the key to merging these two worlds — everywhere I dance, something is watered, something grows.”

The track is described as the journey the artist started after moving to Los Angeles from Brooklyn, with Erick adding, “It speaks on what it was like to make that move and why I did it — but not forgetting that where I’m from is integral to my growth.”

Shamir drops off his second Homo Anxietatem single “Our Song,” with the album dropping August 18. “It took about three months to write this song, which is the longest it’s ever taken me to write a song.
