The MixtapE! Presents Ed Sheeran, Maluma and More New Music Musts

New music Fridays are a thrilling, yet daunting prospect for any music lover. 

It’s essentially a weekly holiday where fan-favorite artists and fresh faces alike drop their latest offerings for all the world to hear, flooding streaming services and digital retailers with an onslaught of aural goodies. But who has the time to sit there and listen to everything before updating their playlists? There’s just too much good stuff! (And, if we’re being honest, usually a few stinkers, too.)

As it turns out, we do. Welcome to The MixtapE!

Give us love and new Ed Sheeran

More than a year after his best friend Jamal Edwards suddenly passed away at 31, the “Perfect” singer released a song about navigating loss called “Eyes Closed.”

“I pictured this year a little bit different when it hit February,” he sings. “I step in the bar, it hit me so hard / Oh how can it be this heavy? / Every song reminds me you’re gone / And I feel the lump form in my throat / ‘Coz I’m here alone.”
