Childish Gambino, Terror Jr., and so much more

Every weekend, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of the best new music that's just hit the web, because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week’s round features 10 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Childish Gambino, Terror Jr., and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"Summertime Magic / Feels Like Summer" - Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino's latest is a breezy departure from his politically charged anthem, "This Is America." The bona fide summer jam is made for you to consume with a piña colada in hand and carefree attitude in mind.

"High Horse" - Kacey Musgraves

Musgraves gives us a taste of country disco realness with her '70s-inspired video for her funky track "High Horse." We dare you not to do The Hustle to this. 

"Hostage" - Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish depicts the pitfalls of a co-dependent relationship in her emotional new video for "Hostage."

Be Yourself - Taylor Bennett

Taylor Bennett's new EP is all the motivation you need to step into a more confident you.

"Like I Used To" - Tinashe

Tinashe's effortless swagger is evident in her latest single. If you've got a fuckboi in your life, tell him boy bye with this instant bop.

"La Di Da" - The Internet

No one does funk better than The Internet. Their latest, off of their forthcoming album Hive Mind, is 100 percent groove-worthy.

"Conversation" - Shenna

Shenna turned the anxiety of having hard conversations with your loved ones into a dream pop anthem. 


"Heaven Wasn't Made For Me" - Terror Jr.

Nothing will keep you on the edge of your seat like Terror Jr.'s latest. 

"Go 2.0 (feat. Jorja Smith, H.E.R., and Rapsody)" - Alex Da Kid

This sensual, slow-burning powerhouse of a tune courtesy of Jorja Smith, H.E.R., Rapsody, and Alex Da Kid will give you all the feels. You'll definitely want to add this to your next sex jams playlist.

"Sun In Our Eyes (feat. Diplo)" - MØ

MØ and Diplo team up once again for a snappy new bop. It's the first off of MØ's forthcoming record, Forever Neverland, and if the song is indicative of what we can expect from the rest of the album, we can't wait for it.

Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, and so much more

Every weekend, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of the best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's round features 21 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, Tacocat, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"Please Me" - Cardi B and Bruno Mars
"Please Me" will pair perfectly with all of the Valentine's Day candy you just bought on clearance. Trust me, there couldn't be a more perfect time to listen to this ultra-'90s R&B track.

Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne
I'm honestly jealous of whomever Avril is singing about on "Goddess."

Tacocat - Grains of Salt [OFFICIAL VIDEO] www.youtube.com

"Grains of Salt" - Tacocat
When I realized Tacocat was back, I literally turned around at my desk and yelled. It's a miracle.

"Can I Talk" - Caleb Steph
Caleb Steph's debut single proves that he's ready for the spotlight.

Betty - Betty Who
"You better recognize/ That you're wasting all my time" from "The One" is my new favorite response to every "photographer" on Tinder.

"Butterfly" - Kehlani
The only thing more beautiful than this cover art is Kehlani's voice.

SASAMI - Free (feat. Devendra Banhart) (Official Video) www.youtube.com

"Free" - SASAMI feat. Devendra Banhart
I would have never predicted a SASAMI and Devendra Banhart collaboration, but I am 100 percent not complaining.

Rex Orange County - New House www.youtube.com

"New House" - Rex Orange County
Alex O'Connor never fails to impress me with his soulful bedroom pop, and "New House" is no exception.

"Cuz I Love You" - Lizzo
Distorted guitar paired with Lizzo's belting vocals? Chills, literally. She did that!

"Heads Gonna Roll" - Jenny Lewis
Like if Stevie Nicks' voice met Father John Misty's lyrics.

"Get Well" - Donna Missal
Donna Missal tells me everything I needed to hear about breakups on "Get Well."

"Patient" - Monica Martin
Sultry and sweet.

"Whorey Heart" - TeaMarr
TeaMarrr's bouncy new song is an excellent roast of the kind of fuckboi we all know and hate.

"Ice Me Out (Remix)" - Kash Doll
Kash Doll shows that she knows her way around a beat on "Ice Me Out."

"Lips of Lips" - Tiffany Young
Definitely catch me driving around with my windows down this summer blaring "Lips on Lips."
