Now that new music comes out every Friday – though not always on every streaming service – it can be hard to know where to find the next great song.
To help you out, Business Insider compiles this rundown of the best new music you can stream right now.
This week, J. Cole released a new album, and the soundtrack to the Oscar-favorite musical “La La Land” premiered alongside its theatrical release.
Check out this week’s best new songs:
J. Cole — “Neighbors”
Few tracks stand out on “4 Your Eyez Only,” the largely uninspired and soporific new album from rapper J. Cole. “Neighbors,” however, is an ironic and compelling song wherein Cole raps about how the neighbors near his new mansion think he must be selling drugs to afford it.
Electric Guest — “Dear to Me”
In the new music video for “Dear to Me” by Electric Guest – the indie-pop group led by Asa Taccone, younger brother of The Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone – band Haim and Andy Samberg make cameo appearances while dancing to the group’s fresh and soulful single.
Bonobo — “Break Apart” feat. Rhye
British producer Bonobo links up with Rhye singer Mike Milosh on the meditative “Break Apart.” The song’s music video features stunning drone footage of desert rock formations.
Ab-Soul — “The Law” feat. Mac Miller & Rapsody
Kendrick Lamar labelmate Ab-Soul joins forces with Mac Miller and Rapsody on “The Law,” an upbeat, metaphysical musing on how “love is the only law.”
Ryan Gosling — “City of Stars”
Ryan Gosling’s haunting piano ballad from the trailer for this year’s Oscars best picture frontrunner, “La La Land,” is now available to stream, along with the rest of the film’s score and soundtrack, featuring performances from Gosling, Emma Stone, and John Legend.
