Saweetie's new 6-track project The Single Life directly addresses her relationship and breakup with rapper Quavo. At Teen Vogue Summit 2022, Saweetie noted in her keynote that tracks like standout “No Reception” would address “everything that's been in the media about her this year.”

"I’m excited to share what I went through,” Saweetie said of the project at the Summit. “I think as I was making it, I was more proud to be single. Because I realized that I was growing, I realized that I was elevating. I realized that I was becoming a better woman.” I know that's right. Check out The Single Life above.

Brockhampton's finale is here, and they're saying goodbye — for real this time. The group first announced their disbandment at the start of this year, and performed their last festival show together in late April at Coachella 2022. A few days before that performance, frontman Kevin Abstract teased the group's final album would be coming later this year. The time has finally come, and Brockhampton has gifted fans with not one, but two farewell projects: The Family and TM. The group has ensured that fans feel the love, performing one final show in Los Angeles this past weekend. “We found each other and planted our own trees... Thank you," Abstract wrote in his farewell note to supporters. Listen to the group's last project above.

Regardless of whether you're one of those people who start listening to holiday music right after Halloween or strictly on December 1, you'll enjoy this seasonal gift from Phoebe Bridgers (who, next month, will be voicing Sally in London's Nightmare Before Christmas Live in Concert). “So Much Wine” is Phoebe's latest holiday cover, a fresh take on The Handsome Family's 2000 record. According to Stereogum, proceeds from Phoebe's cover will go to the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Get into the holiday spirit and check out Phoebe's version of the track above.

Sabrina Carpenter knows the magic of her cult-classic hit “Nonsense" — especially those viral outros. The star performed a stripped-down version of the record at Teen Vogue Summit 2022, to a devoted and energetic crowd. This week, she delivered a kind of remix. The sped-up version of “Nonsense” is everything you could want and more. As one YouTube user commented under the visualizer: “Doesn’t matter how many versions she’ll release of this song, it just always sounds bomb.” So true, bestie. Listen to “Nonsense (Sped-Up Version)” above.

21-year-old singer-songwriter Kaash Paige is back, and she's here to stay. Her first release since 2020's Teenage Fever, Kaash's new album S2ML (Soundtrack 2 My Life) includes recent hit singles like the Lil Tjay-assisted “24 Hrs,” “Girlfriend,” “Doubted Me,” and “Miss My Dawgs” featuring 6Lack. 

“It’s almost like I fell off the face of the earth to create a unique sound where people know it's me,” Kaash said in a statement about her creative process behind S2ML. “Going through every emotion possible in the process, you fall off mentally not knowing what's next. This album needs to be relatable to people who sometimes feel lost but never give up. There's nothing wrong with being a real human being because life's not perfect. Once you enter a new realm of growth, you finally see that this is normal... Greatness cannot be rushed, enjoy!" Listen to “AWESOME” from S2ML above.
