HYPEBEAST's Sophie Caraan writes..... As we power through another working week, HYPEBEAST has rounded up a carefully curated list of Music Projects You Missed This Week. This selection includes a full-length release from Mica Levi, an EP from Jordan Mackampa, new singles and visuals from Duke Deuce, Jon Batiste, Markee Steele and serpentwithfeet and collabs from Knxweldge and Khruangbin, YBN Nahmir and 21 Savage, Benny Sings and Tom Misch and Arca and Oliver Coates.

GRAMMY and Emmy nominee Jon Batiste dropped off his latest single "I Need You," a cut from his forthcoming "Black pop" record WE ARE. Produced and written in collaboration with Autumn Rowe and Kizzo, the song combines the sound of early 20th century Black social music with modern pop and the storytelling aspect of hip-hop. "This song is a vibe cleanse. After 2020, this is like a warm hug," Batiste said in a statement. "Let's bring the vibes back!"
