The holiday rush is finally in the rearview window. In a couple of days, President-elect Joe Biden will simply become President Joe Biden and, hopefully, that allows us to officially put Trump behind us, too. With the pandemic still raging on, an attempted siege of the U.S. Capitol making headline news, and more madness in the first eighteen days of the new year, it feels like 2021 doesn't have much positivity in store for us. Hopefully, that changes, but at least one thing has been consistent this year so far: music.

We're all waiting for Drake to officially announce the release date for his next studio album Certified Lover Boy, which he previously said would arrive this month. That doesn't mean that artists aren't releasing some of their best work, though. In the last few weeks, while output has seemingly been a little dryer, some of our favorites came through with great music to keep us from going completely nuts. We've got new albums from Playboi Carti, the last-ever music video from Juice WRLD (featuring Young Thug), a potential star-making single from Flo Milli, and a bunch of lesser-known joints to get us moving our toes in the living room. 

This week, the HNHH Staff compiled another edition of the Staff Picks playlist, known as TIDAL Wave on TIDAL, which you can enjoy below. As always, check out our individual contributions, outlined below, and let us know who had the best picks.
