Songs We <3 This Week

With all the incredible music releases this week, you won’t want any tracks to slip under the radar. Luckily Voir is here to save the day and provide the ten songs you need in your mix, featuring Rina, Lana, Tyler, and Rosalía you’re certain to love these tunes.

Tyler, The Creator – ‘Dogtooth’

On the 17th March, Tyler delighted fans by announcing on Twitter that he’d be releasing the deluxe version of his seventh studio album called CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST: The Estate Sale at the end of this month as well as dropping the single ‘Dogtooth’. Explaining in a tweet his reasoning for releasing the deluxe album two years after the original he said, “Call Me If You Get Lost was the first album I made with a lot of songs that didn’t make the final cut. Some of those songs I really love, and knew they would never see the light of day, so I’ve decided to put a few of them out”. He’d been teasing the track list on Instagram for a while before its announcement showcasing his very sharp dapper fits caught on Wes Anderson-esque film in the process. Tyler dances on top of a water tower, does doughnuts in his luxury car, and walks the hounds in the self-directed brightly saturated video for the track bubbling with the rapper’s unique sense of humour. With its sunny hip hop neo-soul sound the track is essential for spring. 

Shygirl x Bjork – ‘Woe’

Shygirl and Björk have several things in common – they’re both ground-breaking artists, they love to DJ, and they make unearthly music that unleashes our inner celestial spirits. We still can’t get over the otherworldly collab ‘Woe’, which was released on the 21st March as a single for Shygirl’s upcoming deluxe album Nymph_o. Dreamy and spacey, Björk swirls Shygirl’s verses and Sega Bodega’s production from the original track together with her ghostly vocals in a witch’s cauldron to create a dark and unsettling art pop masterpiece. 

Victoria Monét – ‘Smoke’ ft. Lucky Daye

Drift away to the super funky extremely groovy R&B single ‘Smoke’ from Victoria Monét featuring the rapper Lucky Daye. The single was released on the 14th March and will be part of Victoria’s EP Jaguar II the sequel to her EP from 2020 that will drop sometime later this year. In the steamy video, Victoria and Lucky time travel us back to the seventies with vintage magazines, smoky RVs, motorcycles, boxy televisions, and rich orange hues before they’re swept up in a hurricane. Monét serves the coolest monochrome brown retro looks including a chocolate satin co-ord, a hazelnut-coloured velvet dress, a tanned leather jacket, and rhinestone lingerie for her pole dancing finale.

Danny Brown x JPEGMafia – ‘Kingdom Hearts Key’

Danny and Peggy have spliced together 90s J pop, 70s funk, and WWE soundtracks to create the most heavenly and inspired track of the year so far. The track has a buoyant transcendental soundscape reminiscent of soothing anime and video games and fittingly takes its title from the video game series Kingdom Hearts. Though the song is gentle and lulling it’s given an edge by JPEGMAFIA, Danny Brown, and guest redveil’s superb verses. The song is just one of the fourteen tracks from the rappers’ collaborative album which dropped on the 24th March and has received universal acclaim from critics.

Lana Del Rey – ‘Taco Truck x VB’

It’s finally here and we’re head over heels for it. Lana dropped her much anticipated ninth studio album on the 24th March. It’s being dubbed as her magnum opus by critics and fans alike who are obsessed with the genre-bending amalgamation of the styles from her old records with a new trap infused sound. Whilst it was nearly impossible to choose just one track for our list out of the 16 stellar tracks we managed (you should go listen to the whole thing though).

The closer to Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd is wonderfully all over the place ‘Taco Truck x VB’. The song starts with the nicotine-addicted Gen Z idol Lana crooning “Met my boyfriend down at the taco truck/Pass me my vape, I’m feelin’ sick, I need to take a puff”. The slow ballad takes off and the sweet singer warns “When I’m violent, it’s Carlito’s Way” as the groovy deep synths take over. The second half of the song then launches into a grimy unheard version of the 2018 single ‘Venice Beach’. Lana will be headlining The Other Stage at Glastonbury this summer so if you’re lucky enough to have tickets you may have a chance of seeing this song live!

Rosalía and Rauw – ‘BESO’

Thanks to the ultimate star couple we gained three hot new tracks in our playlist this week. Rosalía and Rauw’s collaborative EP RR, released on the 24th March, gives us if Bonnie and Clyde were travel-obsessed vampire Reggaetón superstars and we’re very here for it. On the opening track ‘BESO’, R&R sing passionately to each other toasting their love over a tropical beat that brings to mind warm summer’s evenings. Congrats to the happy couple on their recent engagement!

yunè pinku – ‘Sports’

Malaysian producer and singer-songwriter yunè pinku has been on our radar since 2021 when her collaboration with Logic1000 blew us away. She continued to put out some of the best breakbeats tracks dropping her critically acclaimed debut EP Bluff last year. Earlier this year she announced she’ll be dropping her sophomore release Babylon on the 28th April – a futuristic and kaleidoscopic six track-EP. Following the fantastic singles ‘Night Light’ and ‘Fai Fighter’, the meditative dancefloor essential ‘Sports’ was released on the 22nd March. With an irresistibly cool deadpan delivery yunè sings “Lips, teeth, skip and touch/Don’t, I guess you’ve had enough” over a sinisterly infectious beat. “Sports is based loosely on an angry version of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Video Game’,” revealed the artist in a press release. “Mainly just the idea of someone putting a TV screen before the people they care about and their own life. I envisioned a sort of Wall-E-esque future people to the chair with a TV guide vibe”.

Flo x Missy Elliott – ‘Fly Girl’

A match made in heaven. Legendary hip hop star Miss Elliot teamed up with our favourite girl group for their insanely fun single ‘Fly Girl’ which was released on the 23rd March. Featuring a reworked version of Missy’s hit track ‘Work’ well as a showstopping new verse from the rapper Flo have nailed the 2000s R&B vibe with help of Missy making the track an instant classic. The trio and Missy take over a bar in the video for the track radiating the best energy as they demonstrate why they are fly girls. For some dreamy fashion inspiration check out the video stat! 

Ellie Goulding – ‘By the End of the Night’

Ellie Goulding is renowned for her euphoria-filled dance hits. Her latest single ‘By the End of the Night’ is no different with the short but sweet synthpop banger perfect for a late-night dance party. The single is the second to be released from Ellie’s upcoming fifth studio album Higher than Heaven. If the singles are anything to go by we will be playing it on repeat when it comes out next month.

Rina Sawayama – ‘Eye for an Eye’

Rina gets vengeful on her track ‘Eye for an Eye’ written for the John Wick Chapter 4 soundtrack. The Japanese-British singer belts “I’ll see you in Hell on the other side” on this energetic guitar-driven single. Rina made her acting debut in the fourth instalment of this iconic franchise that was released earlier this month. Blast this song on your headphones and you’ll feel like the main character in your own action movie in no time, trust us.

Niia – ‘Idk what to tell my friends’

Let your sorrows melt away with Niia’s smooth new single ‘Idk what to tell my friends’. released on the 31st March. The Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist teamed up with producer Jonathan Wilson who has previously worked with industry giants Angel Olsen and John Misty. This jazzy R&B track with soft vocals and humming guitars creates the daydreamy and tranquil Americana that we’re crazy for.
