Maybe it's premature to say, but Lana Del Rey's sprawling "A&W," released on Valentine's Day, already feels like a definitive pop single.

Another strong single release from Jessie Ware.

Next album That! Feels Good! (will exclamation points be the new caps?) drops April 2023.

cuff it

Post-Grammys, Bey has dropped a smooth remix of "Cuff It" plus vocals and the instrumental track of the original (which highlights tight-as-a-drum production skills).
