Music royalty, gone too soon.

It’s a sad New Music Friday for many of us in the music community, as we continue to mourn the death of Prince. Though he is no longer with us, his music and spirit continue to move and inspire so many people. Here are this week’s new releases:

  • R.I.P. PRINCE (1958-2016) (iTunes)
    • If nothing else is on your radar to purchase or listen to this week, give The Purple One’s catalog a spin. Albums like 1999 and the soundtrack from Purple Rain, as well as several hits collections, are his current top sellers digitally.
  • A$AP FERG — Always Strive And Prosper (iTunes)
    • The Harlem rapper is currently in the top 20 on Urban radio with “New Level”; it is also his highest-ranking single to date on the Billboard Hot 100. The performer’s 2013 album Trap Lord debuted in the top ten.
  • JORDAN FELIZ — The River (iTunes)
    • Feliz’s debut single was the title cut, a recent #2 hit on the Christian AC chart. He’s following it up with “Never Too Far Gone”. Look for it to grab a solid debut frame next week.
