The Playlist: Drake / Lightning Dust / Yuck


Drake ft James Fauntleroy

Girls Love Beyoncé

Furthering his reputation as the hip-hop star most in tune with his feminine side, Drake returns with this tribute to Mrs Carter.

Lightning Dust


The side-project of two members of Black Mountain, Lightning Dust (above) are an ambitious mix of early-70s folk and synth-based electronica.



Frontman and lead songwriter Daniel Blumberg may have the left the band, but Yuck have confirmed a new album is on its way. Until then, we're back enjoying this track from their debut LP.

Veronica Falls

Waiting For Something to Happen

Last week Veronica Falls released a video featuring close-up nature images cut with stills of the band itself to promote this new single.

Rich Kidd

I'd Be Lying

The Toronto-rapper self-released this track, but he'll doubtless be fighting off record deals once his In My Opinion mixtape drops.

Freddie Gibbs


The Playlist favourite returns with a fresh blast of mid-90s influenced hip hop. Angry, effortless and increasingly versatile, Gibbs is able to recreate his signature sound no matter who's producing.
