The album is a compilation of parts and parts of new material, including “Film Out,” for which BTS released characteristically well-shot visuals last week. He does the same with his appearance on “Pop It” by Bankroll Freddy, whose video features cars, money, women and all the classic hip-hop paraphernalia to visualize the track’s equally lush lyrics. From weekly album releases to indie singles that are released daily, the amount of music is so overwhelming that it’s easy to miss something. Lovato’s new album, “Dancing with the Devil,” is very personal. “The Art of Starting Over” was released last week, and she has friends who help her tell her story. Walker recently told Uproxx about her new album, “For the most part, [my music] is like Old Country Buffet-style shit that I put on the deck. “Driver’s License” is the single off the record and one of the biggest songs of the year while she’s still young, which makes it hard for Olivia Rodrigo to get on stage. That’s what she did a few days ago with “Deja Vu,” a track that has elements of both Radiohead and Lana Del Rey and distances itself from the “sad girl ballad” energy, as Rodrigo put it, of her previous single. One is Ariana Grande, who co-wrote “Met Him Last Night,” and in the song embodies inner demons with the most famous of all: the devil. Roddy Rich has been pretty quiet since the release of his 2019 album, Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, which is probably not too surprising given the album title. This week, Olivia Rodrigo appeared for the second time, and Megan T. Stallion appeared again. About a week ago marked the anniversary of Waxahatchee’s well-received album Saint Cloud. Saint Cloud +3 adds, you guessed it, three songs: covers of Lucinda Williams’ “Fruits Of My Labor,” Dolly Parton’s “Light Of A Clear Blue Morning” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets Of Philadelphia.” The last song from Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine is “Count On Me,” a song full of relationship promise. Even following Uproxx’s daily recommendations can be tedious, so every Monday we bring you this roundup of the week’s best music. If they do go, it will be a boom, because they have confirmed the release of one album, and there is talk of another coming out later this year.
