Another week in the books. It may still feel as though every day is the same as the one before but we're nearing a finish line in this pandemic. With vaccine distribution happening at a quicker rate, much of the world's population will be vaccinated against COVID-19 in a matter of months and, before the end of this year, we may be back to "normal". 

Despite how awful things have been for most people, music has been consistent in keeping us grounded throughout our current struggles. Thankfully, at the end of every week, we can rely on a number of incredible artists to share their gifts with us through single, project, and video releases. Last week, we welcomed new projects from Benny The Butcher and Harry Fraud, DDG and OG Parker, KOTA The Friend and Statik Selektak, Guapdad 4000 and !llmind, and more. It was seemingly a huge week for rapper-producer pairings, but we also happily enjoyed new music from Justin Bieber, Saba, IDK, Lil Gotit, and others. 

All of the aforementioned artists have earned spots on the latest update of the Staff Picks playlist, which is curated weekly by our editorial and sales staff.

Check out what each HNHH staff member picked for the playlist this week and let us know whose selections are your favorite. Subscribe to our page on SoundCloud here for more playlists, as well as TIDAL here.
