New Releases

Samm Henshaw has been releasing music for more than six years, but he's just now releasing his debut album. What took so long?

Hennshaw gained a following after releasing The Sound Experiment EP and its sequel The Sound Experiment II in 2016. High profile tours with Chance the Rapper and Tori Kelly followed. He then released multiple singles, including the viral hit "Broke," but putting together a full length album wasn't easy.

In this episode of It's Real, the Southeast Londoner tells Jordan Edwards how Untidy Soul happened and the secrets to creating an authentic vintage soul sound.

Tick Tock

Coming off the viral success of his track "In the Dark," James Worthy has returned with "Tick Tock," a slinky bedroom anthem that today is premiering exclusively on Popdust.

The sultry song features a multifaceted guest verse from Goodie Mob's Big Gipp, as Worthy serenades a love interest who has become an obsession. "Pinot grigio 'cause it's your favorite wine, I remember cause you stay on my mind," he croons. When Gipp enters, he drowns his lover in lavish luxury; "rubies, emeralds, and pink stones," he raps. "2021 five hundred with the Benz on it
Taupe ass blue coope, five colors." The duo's chemistry on the track is immaculate as they trade verses as smoothly as a fine wine.
