There’s a lot to look forward to in this week’s edition of HipHopDX’s New Music Friday Singles coverage so we’re jumping right into fire first thing.
J. Cole fans are in for yet another treat due to Jermaine’s guest appearance on Karen Civil’s mortal enemy Joyner Lucas’ new track, following his transparent “Heaven’s EP” release.
Future and Gunna also join forces to flex their muddy star power ahead of DS4, BIA and G Herbo connect for their tender collab and 2021 DX Rising Star Blxst links with “Bitchuary” rapper Shordie Shordie for a melodic, in-pocket new street vibe.
Check out the full list of DX-approved releases that dropped Friday (September 24), below.
Joyner Lucas f. J Cole – “Your Heart”
Joyner Lucas has just come off a big week of naming names within the music industry such as Karen Civil and Steve Stoute for their shady business practices.
Following his “Dreams Unfold” collab with Lil Tjay, the Evolution lyricist continues to remain unphased by 2021 negativity and grabs J. Cole to boast on “Your Heart” about how eqquiped he is to take on this year’s bullshit.
Latto – “Big Energy”
BIA f. G Herbo – “Besito”
BIA’s Latin flare is helping the Epic Records artist bring in a major bag in 2021.
On the heels of her twinning “Platinum pussy” chaining day with Nicki Minaj in celebration of their million-unit-selling “Whole Lotta Money (Remix)” single, BIA commissions G Herbo to give her his best sneaky kiss bars for her bi-lingual “Besito” banger.
Remble f. Lil Yachty – “Rocc Climbing”
California rapper — by way of San Pedro — Remble has the world at his fingertips.
After securing heavyweight features for his debut It’s Remble album from artists such as traffic music innovator Drakeo The Ruler, Untreated Trauma MC Mozzy and more, the “Touchable” rapper taps Quality Control starlight Lil Yachty for their brash “Rocc Climbing” hit.
Logic f. Lil Wayne, A$AP Ferg – “Perfect (Remix)”
If it is not apparent by now, Logic did not actually retire from rap.

PAYDAY f. Danny Brown – “Vampire”
Shordie Shordie f. Blxst – “Specific”
Shordie Shordie is proving to be a worthy collaborator in 2021.
