First Stream: New Music From Lil Baby & Lil Durk, Billie Eilish, Bad Bunny and More

Entering the new full-length team-up The Voice of the Heroes, Lil Baby and Lil Durk’s respective skills for collaboration are certainly not in question: some of Baby’s biggest projects have come as half of a duo — like Drip Harder, his 2018 classic with Gunna — while Durk’s been on a commercial roll over the past year thanks to tracks like “Laugh Now, Cry Later” with Drake and “Back In Blood” with Pooh Shiesty. Still, the nimble, emotional sing-rap project The Voice of the Heroes works even better than fans might expect because of the roles both hip-hop stars adopt — Lil Baby the world-weary superhero, Lil Durk the hungry up-and-comer, and guests like Travis Scott, Meek Mill and Young Thug stopping by to assist the dynamic duo on their mission.

Billie Eilish, “Lost Cause” 

“I know you think you’re such an outlaw,” Billie Eilish sings with an implied eye-roll on new single “Lost Cause,” “but you got no job.” If her breakthrough smash “Bad Guy” served as an exaltation of her own knack for subversion, “Lost Cause” works to tear down a romantic partner’s badass self-perception with steady, mid-tempo ego-stripping, in the latest blast of confident songwriting from Eilish’s upcoming Happier Than Ever album.

Bad Bunny, “Yonaguni” 

The music video for “Yonaguni” features Bad Bunny in full “stars: they’re just like us!” mode — playing video games, walking dogs, struggling in an art class, sitting on the toilet. As the new single, which serves as a type of devotional stream-of-consciousness toward a woman he admires, progresses, Bad Bunny’s crooning picks up steam, and by the end of the video he’s hopped off a sad couch at a house party and leading a dance circle (although it may just be in his imagination, sadly).
