This week, artists banded together to livestream, release surprise singles, and push their respective projects forward to help their fans deal with the isolation and self-quarantine of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With people across the globe staying at home to stay safe and healthy, music has played an integral part in uplifting and providing some joy even with the steady stream of concert and festival cancellations. PARTYNEXTDOOR returned from a three year hiatus to release his PARTYMOBILE project and even sat down to talk about it. Features from Drake and Rihanna helped amplify the album, but his honesty, vulnerability and production really drove it home. Elsewhere, Rosalía dabbled with autotune and heartbreak and prolific producer Knxwledge debuted 22 new nostalgic grooves and reconnected with his NxWorries partner Anderson .Paak. Kehlani filmed her latest music video on her MacBook's grainy webcam while quarantined. Check out HYPEBEAST's 10 essential releases of the week in the latest Best New Tracks installment below.

"She ended up loving the record. It’s very self-aware, it’s a conversation.”
