On the heels of Billboard's partnership with the streaming giant, we'll be tapping Spotify's editors to sift through the soon-to-be-hits and highlight the best of the bunch. Check out the picks and listen to the entire "New Music Friday" playlist below. A Tribe Called Quest - "We The People..." By releasing their new project and making a special appearance on a debut Dave Chappelle-hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, legendary rap group A Tribe Called Quest is graciously providing a silver lining to what has been an especially trying week in America.

But it achieves this without losing the distinctive qualities that make the group who they are and what they represent, while humbly demonstrating why they will always be celebrated as one of the most influential, innovative rap groups deeply rooted in the genre's history forever.

Long live, ATCQ. Emeli Sandé - "Lonely" Emeli...
