OMG Playlist June 2022

Every month, our music editor ED curates a special selection of newly released music for the OMG Playlist on Spotify (follow us @omgblog).

If you were celebrating Pride last weekend, then surely you heard Queen Bey’s new single “Break my Soul”. Beyoncé knew exactly what she was doing when she dropped this song during Pride Month! Everything about it—the uplifting lyrics, the house beat, and the Big Freedia feature, all scream G-A-Y. We love the spirit of the song paired with the “Show Me Love” sample. Can’t wait to see what Beyoncé is cooking up for her album Renaissance which is coming out next month!

One of our favorite new releases this month is “SHAKE DAT” from River Moon. The song was “lyrically inspired by the male and female call and response songs like ‘Promiscuous’ by Timbaland and Nelly Furtado and ‘B R Right’ by Trina and Luda while referencing M.I.A. and Diplo’s work on her Kala album.” River covers both “male and female” parts of this song and kills it! We recommend you play at this at the peak of your next party.

We’re so excited for the comeback of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs! Their new single “Spitting off the Edge of the World” features Perfume Genius (who also dropped his incredible album Ugly Season this month) and is like a hazy sonic dreamscape. It’s a song for when you’re moving slow in the morning with the sun on your face, or walking home late at night a little tipsy and appreciative. Make sure you check out the music video, directed by Cody Critchloe!

It doesn’t stop there! We have over two hours of releases, including tunes from TR/ST, Isabella Lovestory, Objekt, LSDXOXO, Swan Meat, and many more!

!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: Lil Nas X & NBA YoungBoy lash out in ‘Late To Da Party (F*CK BET) ‘ !!

Lil Nas X dropped a video for “Late to Da Party” and the album art for this diss track depicts him urinating on a BETAward that’s already soaking in bodily fluid in a toilet!! Wowza. He was snubbed by the 2022 BET Awards and the singer/rapper WAS NOT HAPPY! Nas has said:

“Thank you bet awards. an outstanding zero nominations again,” he wrote in a thread of now-deleted tweets, according to Billboard, after the nominations were announced. “black excellence!” he sarcastically added.

Check out his send-up of the situation calling them out for their lack of support in his new video after the jump!
