Lots of new releases, including a quite a few that aren’t holiday songs! While the latest from SZA and Polo G plus collabs from Juice WRLD with Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande with Kid Cudi are likely to shoot up the charts, here are this week’s #HitsOfTomorrow.

“Party 22” – Lilyisthatyou

Toronto-based Lily Davies aka Lilyisthatyou has the perfect December track to keep on repeat to get us straight to 2022. After the viral success of “FRMN,” it’s great to see the artist have another go and this time, it’s suitable for everyone on TikTok! With two banger tracks now, Lilyisthatyou has one of the brightest futures ahead and “Party22” is a worthwhile celebration.

“You’re So Fucking Pretty” – The Regrettes

The Regrettes are back with quite possibly their strongest pop effort yet with “You’re So Fucking Pretty.” Between the honesty of the lyrics and the haunting melodies – the band here create a cinematic moment in less than four minutes that is likely to resonate with anyone who has had a crush on a friend. 

“Déjà Vu” – Oliver Heldens, Anabel Englund

Every time I read that a single is titled “Déjà Vu,” I always wonder, is it a cover? Well, fret not, this is an original collab between house hitmaker Oliver Heldens and one of my favorite house vocalists of late, Anabel Englund (ever since her work with Disciples). The single has huge potential top make a dent at Top 40 and I really think Englund is destined for a big crossover hit.

“Where You Been Hiding” – Sinead Harnett

R&B singer-songwriter Sinead Harnett is readying the deluxe edition of her sophomore album Ready Always Too Late and we have to wonder why she was hiding a song like “Where You Been Hiding.” The new single, produced by M-Phazes, is just the kind of record Harnett sounds best on – soulful, sultry and sincere.

“Shisha” – Afro B, Niniola, Busiswa

Produced by Team Salut, the king of Afrowave himself – Afro B is back, this time featuring Niniola and Busiswa for “Shisha.” The single is yet another breezy track from the artist who has been giving us the best Jazzie B/Soul II Soul vibe for today. Such a breath of fresh air and it’s no reason every single has become a hit! 

On the cusp…here are three more new releases we hope to see go far!

“Fade Into A Dream” – LEON

“Toxic Love” – Stefflon Don, Midas The Jagaban

“In My Feelings” – Miraa May
