New Music Roundup: Boosie, Napoleon Da Legend, JAUZ, Mabel

Songs for hustlers, fist-pumping, and '90s R&B lovers.

Atlantic Records/ Boosie // Atlantic Records Press

Boosie, "Sell My Name" Feat. Webbie & Bun B

If "Wipe Me Down" was all you needed to get ready to hit the club, your ears will perk up at the mention of a new Boosie x Webbie single. But the addition of Bun B lets you know that you're in for less of a get-hyped record and more of a slow burn. This is a deep-fried, old-soul hustlers' anthem, where Boosie raps, "I'm outchea hustling tryna sell my name / I want the money, I don't want the fame." And, of course, they pay respect to Pimp C, the biggest boss of them all.—Driadonna Roland

Napoleon Da Legend, "Sacrifice"

This emcee isn't suffering a complex; more so, he's rhyming as if he should've gotten your respect some time ago. Napoleon strikes early on with comparisons to the late Muhammad Ali and it's nothing less than admirable. Wisely choosing to kick his rhymes over the soulful work of the late J Dilla, NDL is an emcee to be reckoned with.— Rob Hansen

DJ Snake, "Propaganda (JAUZ Remix)"

DJ Snake’s eerie bass-driven song "Propaganda" has gotten a little taste of the ferocious Jauz after he remixed the tune. As the beat builds, you won't be able to stop bobbing your head and wishing you were watching it live because fist-pumping in a room isn't cutting it anymore. Jauz has impressed the #SharkSquad with this hype-ass remix that proves he stands by his motto "music has no boundaries." Enter the Shark Tank above.— Selena Valencia

Mabel, "Thinking of You"

I first heard about Mabel last year when she released "Know Me Better" and I discovered then that she was the daughter of Neneh Cherry, so it never really surprises me when the kid of a musician inherits their parent's very-talented genes but this new song, "Thinking of You," is really, really good. It's polished R&B that would make SWV proud, and if its '90s-inspired hip-hop drums aren't enough to let you know exactly which era she's aiming to recall, look no further than the video in which she rocks big hoop earrings, gold namechains, denim-on-denim, and an all-white baggy suit fit for a boybander.—Danielle Cheesman
