The Music Week Playlist: October 2, 2017

Krept & Konan
Wo Wo Wo
(Virgin EMI)

Krept & Konan are releasing two mixtapes, 7 Days and 7 Nights, on October 21. Hard, slow and dangerous, this is from the former.

Bhad Bhabie
Hi Bich/Whachu Know

The teenage hip-hop sensation and social media star drops a mildly frightening two-in-one video for her new single. Remember the name.

Contact Ebi Sampson

Nilüfer Yanya
Baby Luv
(Blue Flowers Music)

Fresh from a support slot with The xx, this 22-year-old releases Baby Luv on Blue Flowers. Introspective and skewed firmly off-centre, it’s a treat.

Contact Dan Carson

Milk Teeth
Nearby Catfight
(Roadrunner Records)

Milk Teeth are here to satiate anyone in need of a bassline caked in sludge. Get more boisterous noise from the Go Away EP, out November 17.

Contact Phoebe Sinclair

Snapped Ankles
Hanging With The Moon
(The Leaf Label)

Tom Grennan
Royal Highness

In which the Bedford singer edges ever-closer to uncovering his inner radio darling. This is surely his best chorus yet.

Contact Emily Cooper

Cardi B
Bodak Yellow

All hail Cardi B, the first solo female hip-hop artist to top the US chart since Lauryn Hill in 1998! The totemic Bodak Yellow toppled Taylor Swift, too. Watch out world.
