Our weekly roundup of the hottest new songs is always one for the books, and our favorite artists truly outdid themselves this week. Everyone from Olivia Rodrigo and Hozier to Shakira and Cardi B has given us amazing new tracks, ranging from future chart-toppers to hidden gems.

This week marked the release of Olivia Rodrigo’s Guts (Spilled), the long-awaited deluxe edition of her latest studio album. This album gave us five amazing new songs, but “Obsessed” is shaping up to be another instant hit in Rodrigo’s impressive discography.

Metro Boomin and Future also made it to our list with “Like That” ft. Kendrick Lamar from their collaborative album We Don’t Trust You. Speaking of amazing collaborations, Shakira’s “Puntería” ft. Cardi B was released as the last single from her new album Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran.
