Music Week Playlist: 23 April, 2018

Nicki Minaj
Barbie Tingz (Young Money/Cash Money/Republic)

“It’s time to make hits,” raps Nicki Minaj on one of two just-dropped new tracks that bang in familiar fashion. The world’s a poorer place without Nicki and her inimitable flow in it. Welcome back!

Miles Kane
Loaded (Virgin EMI)

The first morsel from the Liverpudlian’s third solo album, Coup De Grace, was written with Jamie T and Lana Del Rey. It’s still got that mod-ish tinge, though.

Coach Hop
I Like Taylor Swift (Scratchy Records Singles Club)

Charlie Laurence’s Record Store Day release is a music biz takedown dressed up as a tribute to Taylor Swift, set to buzzing power pop. You may even laugh.

Sudan Archives
Nont For Sale (Stones Throw)

The maverick Los Angeles violinist whets appetites before dropping her Sink EP (out May 25) with a shifting new single that locks into a deep groove.

Curse Of The Contemporary (Dead Oceans)

Ramz
Family Tree (Polydor)

With almost 650,00 sales of debut single Barking in the bag, Ramz hooks up with Fraser T Smith for Family Tree, a sweet homage to his roots.

Yellow Days
The Way Things Change (Columbia)

George Van Den Broek drops his first new music of 2018, and it’s a sleepy, piece of pop that sounds like it was recorded under water. Very nice.
