Khalid - 'Self'
After 'My Bad' Khalid teased his upcoming album Free Spirit with 'Self'. The track will strike a chord with almost everyone who has grappled with self-doubt, being overwhelmed by one's emotions and fear of failure. "I've been so used to winnin'/It was hard for me to lose," he sings. Khalid's vocals are crystal clear against a steady, simple beat in the background. Free Spirit releases on 5 April.
Rosalia and J Balvin - 'Con Altura'
After her successful album El Mal Querer, which included 'Malamante' and the 'Bagdad' that sampled Justin Timberlake's 'Cry Me a River', Rosalia has joined hands with J Balvin and music producer El Guincho. 'Con Altura' is a nod to old school reggaeton (think Daddy Yankee) with hints of traditional flamenco music. The language barrier should not stop you from enjoying the spunky, upbeat song, which gives something classic a contemporary spin.
Ciara - 'Thinkin' Bout You'
Following 'Greatest Love', in February, Ciara announced her new album Beauty Marks and also released a single 'Thinkin Bout You'. The sensual-yet-sassy Ciara confesses to thinking about the one that got away almost at all times of the day. Beauty Marks will be out on 10 May.
Tame Impala - 'Patience'
The hipster favourite Australian psychedelic rock outfit has made a comeback with a new single 'Patience.' Though Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker has been a busy man, collaborating with bigwigs like Kanye West and Lady Gaga, he has also hinted at a new album. In 'Patience' he could be singing about the time that has passed since the release of Currents and the scrutiny about his vision for the band's future.
Zara Larsson - 'Don't Worry Bout Me'
