Flo Milli, Lil Uzi Vert and DC The Don drop projects at the end of the year.

As the new year looms around the corner, various artists still have something to get off their chest. Check this week’s latest in the realm of new singles and musical projects.


Flo Milli releases her latest EP, titled “Never Lose Me”

The “Conceited” rapper dropped her single of the same name in November, following it up with the release of the EP on Christmas Eve.


The EP features five versions, one of which features fellow rapper Lil Yachty and another features R&B singer Bryson Tiller. There are “Slowed” and “Sped Up” versions of the song.


Flo Milli became a Billboard Hot 100-charting artist for the first time with the release of the original single. The song debuted at No. 84 with 7 million streams within the United States. Its success can be partially attributed to TikTok as it has been included in more than 135,000 clips. On the TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart, the song ranks at #13 (as of December 27).


The song samples Babyface Ray and 42 Dugg’s “Ron Artist.”

Lil Uzi Vert drops “Red Moon” on Christmas 

The Philly-born rapper initially released their latest single, “Red Moon,” on YouTube, later uploading the song on streaming platforms.


This comes after the June 30 release of their  third studio album, “Pink Tape,” which has features from Travis Scott and Nicki Minaj. The album was released a year after their EP, titled “Red & White.”


“Red Moon” serves as a heartbreak anthem, tapping into the emo rap genre.

DC The Don Drops “Sacred Hearts 2,” the second installment of a mixtape series

The Milwaukee native and 2022 XXL Freshman released “Sacred Hearts 2,” his fourth mixtape in five years and second music project of the calendar year.


He released his third studio album in May 2023, titled “Funeral.” The album served as a continuation of 2022’s “My Own Worst Enemy” as it discusses Rag3 Kidd’s funeral after he died in the previous album.


Similar to “Funeral” and “My Own Worst Enemy,” “Sacred to the Heart 2” is the second installment of the SACRED HEART mixtape series.
