With June coming to an end, we’ve got fresh new music from Def Jam signee Saint Bodhi, Queen of hip-hop and R&B Mary J. Blige, and more.

Saint Bodhi airs out her frustrations on her new single, “Hurt Like Me.” The South Central artist showcases her impressive vocals chops and her lethal songwriting skills as she sings about a partner doing her wrong. 

“I thought of breaking all your windows /, But that might be a bit too far / Plus lawyers in LA are too expensive /, And I know how much you love that…car/ I just want you to hurt like me,” Bodhi sings. 

Mary J. Blige debuted her new single, “Hourglass,” at the end of her new Amazon Prime documentary, Mary J Blige’s My Life, which is out now. The piano-laden track was produced by Teddy Riley, Andrew Murray and Benjamin Wright.  

“Broken hearts and broken glass everywhere/ But the city just don’t care,” BJ sings. 

Meanwhile, DJ D-Nice linked up with R&B singer Kiana Ledé for his new single, “Rather Be.” The duo performed their dance anthem earlier this week on Good Morning America as part of its Summer Concert series.

BJ The Chicago Kid returned his new single, “The Chi,” which appeared on the current season of the hit Showtime series, The Chi. The song finds BJ describing what it’s like growing up in his hometown in Chicago. 

And last but not least, Justine Skye has released her long-awaited album, Space & Time, a joint project with legendary music producer Timbaland. The Brooklyn-born singer also enlisted collaborations from Nigerian artist Rema and Timbo’s go-to-hitmaker Justin Timberlake.
