In this week's new releases, or at least the ones that have popped up on Spotify:

  • Naughty Boy's roped in Kyla (very smart) and Popcaan for a big dancehall-influ­enced release. (Is this song a cover? We're sure we've heard it somewhere before.)
  • Sean Paul, meanwhile, has roped in Dua Lipa for his own release. You could do a pretty good conga to this one and it's great to have these two elusive vocalists back in New Music Friday.
  • 'No More Sad Songs' is Little Mix going tropical and that is abso­lutely fine.
  • Jess Kent's EP is really amazing, but 'Bass So Low' ref­er­ences Girls Aloud's 'Sound Of The Underground', as all songs should, so that has to be today's favourite. Basically the entire EP's great.
  • MOTO BOY IS BACK.
  • Do you ever wonder to yourself, in your darkest moments, whether DNCE should have just left it at 'Cake By The Ocean'?

We didn't include any 'Metallica', apols.
