Singles file: Wale f. Kid Cudi, Bleached, Phil Ade


Wale and Kid Cudi bury the hatchet on Wale’s new single. (Josh Sisk/FTWP)
A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...

Wale featuring Kid Cudi: “Focused”

It’s like the Paris Peace Accords, except with rappers: Longtime friends-turned-sworn-enemies-turned-friends-again Wale and Cudder reunite for this new “Ambition” cut.

Bleached: “Searching Through the Past”

If Best Coast was a girl-girl punk band who listened to old Stevie Nicks records, it might sound something like this fiercely good, Los Angeles-based sister act.

Phil Ade: “College Girl”

The DMV star turns Dom Kennedy’s “Dream to Me” into something suitable for New Edition or ’N Sync on this super-chill new cut. Never has “I want to hold your books” sounded so dirty.

Black Tusk: “Carved in Stone”

The latest in a long line of increasingly awesome, increasingly thunderous metal bands from Savannah, Ga., Black Tusk wages war on tunefulness with this wrecking ball of a track.

DJ 21azy: “Put It in Your Manners” (Childish Gambino X Chiddy Bang)

Who knew Gambino’s songs were so eminently mashable? This follow-up of sorts to “Close Enough,” his sublime and weird collision with Adele and Wale, marries “Put It in My Video” to Chiddy Bang’s “Mind Your Manners.”
