It was a very good week for new music. Without much advance, Drake took over the week with the release of Scary Hours 2, his brand new three-pack containing his single "What's Next", "Wants and Needs" with Lil Baby, and "Lemon Pepper Freestyle" with Rick Ross. The EP is expected to make a huge splash on the Billboard Hot 100 next week, with "What's Next" looking poised to dethrone Olivia Rodrigo's debut single "driver's license" after an impressive eight weeks at the top of the charts.

Of course, Drake wasn't the only artist that released some new music. There were a number of other stars that shared his release date, including Lil Baby with his new single "Real as it Gets" with EST Gee, Lil Durk's Only The Family compilation album, Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats' remix tape, and more. The Boogie soundtrack was also officially released, including some new songs from Pop Smoke.

Needless to say, there was a lot of new music for the staff to dive into this week. As the year finally heats up, we put together the latest update of the staff-curated playlist, which features twenty-two of our favorite releases from the last few weeks.

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.
