Summer Blazes: Nas & 50 Cent’s Fiery Collaboration Ignites the Charts

Nas & 50 Cent

As the summer blazes on, the hip-hop and R&B scene sizzles with scorching new releases that are setting the charts ablaze. The genre reached a new milestone with Lil Uzi Vert’s first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, and it seems that success has ignited a wave of new singles and projects from other artists, eager to keep the momentum going. Among this week’s New Music Friday releases (July 21), Nas stands out, dropping “Magic 2,” a follow-up to last year’s acclaimed “King’s Disease III.” The album boasts compelling appearances from none other than 50 Cent and 21 Savage. However, it’s Nas’ electrifying collaboration with his fellow New Yorker, “Office Hours,” that takes the spotlight on our Fire Emoji playlist update, followed closely by another dynamic duo – J. Cole and Bas.

The chemistry between J. Cole and Bas is undeniable, and their latest offering, “Passport Bros,” is yet another successful joint effort from the Dreamville leader this season. Meanwhile, ASAP Rocky showcases his mastery on “RIOT (Rowdy Pipe’n)” with Pharrell, a track that recently featured in a captivating Beats ad spot and has been earning well-deserved praise. However, it’s Travis Scott’s “K-POP,” featuring the enigmatic Bad Bunny and the soulful voice of The Weeknd, that’s already emerging as a strong contender for the song of the summer.

Delving further into the playlist, we find “Long Nights” by Canada’s very own Smiley, a captivating tune that perfectly captures the essence of those summer evenings. Jay Rock teams up with Anderson. Paak and Latto for the smooth yet energizing “Too Fast (Pull Over),” a collaboration that showcases the talents of each artist.

The playlist’s lineup also features Ice Spice, with her catchy new track “Deli,” landing alongside three other fresh titles on her updated “Like..?” EP. This release comes shortly before Gucci Mane’s fiery track, “Married with Millions,” bringing a wave of heat to the summer airwaves. From Babyface Ray’s latest album, we’ve selected “Fly Gods” featuring the inimitable Westside Gunn, a combination that exemplifies lyrical prowess.

Closing out the musical journey, we have Sleepy Hallow, Ghost Kidz, and Vince Staples, each offering their unique flavor to the playlist. Finally, we have “PB&J,” a collaboration between Lil Gnar, Chief Keef, and Young Nudy, blending their styles into a delectable treat.

The Fire Emoji update exclusively on Spotify promises an exciting journey through the hottest tracks in hip-hop and R&B. So, which of these latest arrivals sets your soul ablaze?
