Weekly updates

Welcome to Acclaim Magazine’s Heat of the Week. Here are our picks for the best new local and international releases — Don’t forget to follow our Spotify playlist too, it’s updated every Friday.

01. 6lack - Know My Rights ft. Lil Baby

Atlanta’s 6lack returns today with a new project titled 6pc Hot, led by the single and certified head-nodder ‘Know My Rights’. It’s a smooth track that sees 6lack sit on a laid-back flow in his signature melodically nonchalant style. ‘Know My Rights’ sees 6lack link up with fellow ATL-ien and current MVP feature artist Lil Baby, who adds some flawless triplet-flow spice to the mix. Other project highlights include classic 6lack slow jams like ‘Outside’ and ‘Elephant In The Room’. Be sure to keep it locked to Acclaim over the next week for our interview with the man himself! — Cass N.

02. Arca - KLK ft. Rosalía

‘KLK’ is the futuristic collaboration we needed. Arca’s sharp production and Rosalía’s unmistakable vocals have manifested as an industrial belter infused with the rhythmic pulse of Latin music. The track is electro-experimental but is full of bass-heavy knocks that take us underground. This one isn’t a head bop, it’s a body shock. Rosalía’s Spanish hums gently compliment the sharp beat so regardless of your spoken language, it still hits in the right spot. — Ansam F.

03. Wombat - Adrenaline ft. Devlin

Tasmanian spitter Wombat and Dagenham legend Devlin bring a barrage of bars in ‘Adrenaline’, the latest in AUS/UK crossovers. Both artists are their usual selves here; fiery, frantic, and thriving in a frenzy of wordplay. Wombat even boasts a can of Double Black can at one point in the video, symbolising the sounds of this song; as cold as (Smirnoff) ice. Let’s hope that we hear a full-length from Wombat soon because these teaser singles always leave us wanting more.  — Henry O.

04. City Girls - Jobs

In a year most of us can agree has been truly shit so far, something that we are grateful for is the reunion of Florida duo City Girls. Yung Miami and JT surprised fans with their sophomore album City On Lock this week and it’s packed full of fun new tracks, with features from Yo Gotti, Doja Cat, Lil Durk and more. Lead single ‘Jobs’ is loaded with one-liners about getting money and feeling yourself, who could be mad? — Cass N.

05. UNO Stereo - Innerludes

The Euphoric sounds of both classic and futuristic RnB are prominent in UNO Stereo’s new EP Innerludes. Chopped, reverberated vocal samples and swift, smooth synths give every track a sleek sense of style, with bellowing basslines and pulsating drumlines creating the feeling of riding a motorcycle in the Tron grid. It also showcases some of the best upcoming talents in Australia with features from Jordan Dennis, 18YOMAN, Ojikae, and Majerle, making Innerludes forward-thinking in sound, with an undeniably old soul. — Henry O.
