The holidays are officially upon us and, in just a few short days, we'll be welcoming in a new year. With the Winter Solstice happening today, we're in for the shortest day of the year, with the sun setting earlier than any other day in the calendar year. With that said, many people are writing down their goals for the next year, manifesting and hoping to develop some superpowers for the next twelve months. 

There has been an abundance of great music released this year, which we summed up by rounding up the hottest album and single releases of the year, and, much like every other week, we were inundated with new music in the few days. In addition to some holiday favorites, like Kanye West's "Christmas In Harlem" and Jim Jones' "Ballin' On Xmas", we've put together the latest edition of the Staff Picks playlist, only available on TIDAL and SoundCloud.

We're starting off with a wave of holiday bangers, including the aforementioned tracks and some new-new from Yo Gotti. We're then led into Eminem's latest single "Gnat", some big tunes from Conway The Machine, EARTHGANG's collaboration with Wale, and much more.

Take a look at the playlist below, on SoundCloud and TIDAL, and let us know which editor had your favorite picks.
