JAY-Z - 4:44
JAY-Z is back with a brand new album: 4:44. The TIDAL exclusive is one of the rap superstar's most confessional releases to date. It opens with the introspective 'Kill Jay Z' before taking things to church on 'Smile' and 'Family Fued'. Its lyrics will no doubt be picked apart in gossip magazines for months to come - they directly address his infidelity - but the music will live on past the sensationalist headlines. 4:44 is a return to form and, although it's too soon to confirm, on first listen it ranks among JAY-Z's best.
Calvin Harris - Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1
Calvin takes us back to the 90s with this all star mixtape. As 'Slide', 'Heatstroke', 'Rollin' and 'Feels' teased - it's the perfect album to play with the top down. And there's plenty new songs to enjoy. 'Holiday' enlists Snoop Dogg for the perfect chillout, 'Skrt On Me' features Nicki at her best and 'Faking It' proves that Kehlani and Lil Yachty have long careers ahead of them.
TLC - TLC
TLC are back with their first studio album in 15 years. From the instant ease of 'Way Back' to the uplifting nature of 'Perfect Girls' - it's like they never left. Instead of chasing modern day trends, the queens of cool remind us how great the music was they made when Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was still alive. A beautiful album from a brilliant band.
LANY - LANY
LANY have a way with spacious, alternative pop and it's a pleasure to hear it unfold over a full album.
Donae'o - sixteen Mixtape
Mixtapes don't get much better than Donae'o's latest work.

The Norwegian popstar is a master of forward-thinking pop and her second EP, 'Party's Over', shows it off in spades. From the magical chorus of 'Breathe' to the intelligent lyrics of Sushi, you'll be mesmirised by this EP for months to come.
