It's Friday, so you know what that means -- new music!

From BTS' new album to a Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber Collab, and a new DJ Cuppy track, we've got your playlist covered for the weekend.

Take a look at some of the hottest releases this week:

BTS -- BE

K-Pop stars BTS have released their highly anticipated album BE. The album contains eight tracks and includes the band single hit Dynamite, as well as Fly to My Room and Blue & Grey.

In an interview with Rolling Stone India, band member Jin said the album is "like a page in our diary of the times we are currently living in."

Miley Cyrus ft Dua Lipa -- Prisoner

Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa is the duo we never knew we needed. The pair released an upbeat, catchy tune called Prisoner.

While the song will have you singing along almost immediately, it's the sexually charged video that may have you doing a couple of double-takes.

In the video, Miley and Dua party on a bus, Miley eats a spider, they mutilate a teddy bear and pour a red liquid all over themselves that looks a lot like blood -- you know, just a regular Friday night.

DJ Cuppy ft Stonebwoy -- Karma

Nigerian star DJ Cuppy has released the music video for her track Karma which features Stonebwoy.

The video is the perfect accompaniment to the dancehall track with Cuppy and Stonebwoy getting down to the beat at a party.

Karma forms part of DJ Cuppy's debut album, Original Copy, released in August this year.

Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber -- Monster

After sharing a teaser with fans, Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber's video for Monster has arrived.

The spooky video sees the Canadian stars sing their hearts out in a dark, outdoor setting with flashes of light to add to that eerie feeling.

The simplistic video was well-received by fans who could not contain their excitement in the YouTube comments section.

Black Coffee ft Pharrell Williams and Jozzy -- 10 Missed Calls

Here's one for you to get down to.

Black Coffee has finally released his collab with Pharrell Williams and Jozzy.

In an interview with Channel24, Black Coffee said he had wanted to work with Pharrell for a while. "When he (Pharrell) heard this particular song, he was like, 'Okay, this is the one I want to get on'," the DJ said.
