J. Cole dropped his long-anticipated sixth studio album, while Nicki Minaj thrilled the Barbz with the streaming release of her Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape, featuring three brand new tracks.

Olivia Rodrigo shared the third single off her upcoming album, Sour, which drops next week, Katy Perry teamed up with Pikachu (!!!) for her "Electric" track from Pokemon 25: The Album, and Lukas Graham released their heartfelt new single, "Happy for You."

Maren Morris joined rising star Joy Oladokun on her emotional new song, "Bigger Man," T-Pain and Kehlani paired up for a party-ready track, "I Like Dat," and Dustin Lynch recruited Chris Lane for his tipsy summer jam, "Tequila on a Boat."
