>ALICIA KEYS FEATURING KENDRICK LAMAR

“It’s On Again”

After a blistering spit from Lamar, A-Keys slicks it up with a lush, string-laden Pharrell production from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. Not super, but it still swings. []

ED SHEERAN

“Sing”

A more unlikely Pharrell collab-oration, this recalls the producer’s work on Justin Timberlake‘s “Like I Love You,” with a funky and falsettoed Sheeran cutting loose. He even breaks out his Brit-boy rap flow! []

THE BLACK KEYS

“Fever”

The duo come shimmying back with this retro-’60s boogie—from Turn Blue, due May 13—that is made for your go-go boots. []

BRAD PAISLEY

“River Bank”

Previewing his next album with this spring-summer splash, the country star gets you basking in feel-good vibrations. []

JANELLE MONAE

“Heroes”

It’s hard to mess with the perfection of David Bowie’s original, but Monáe injects this with her quirky soul. []
