City Girls get real RAW in their new third studio album, which was released Friday (Oct. 20).

The 18-track projectincludes previously released singles “I Need a Thug,” “Piñata,” “No Bars,” “Face Down” and “Good Love,” featuring Usher. The other featured guests include Lil Durk (“Static”), Muni Long (“Emotions”), Juicy J (“Fancy Ass Bitch”) and Kim Petras (“Flashy”). They teamed up with Petras to tease the sugary sweet pop hook of “Flashy” (“Stylin’, shinin’ / I’m so flawless like my diamonds / I’m flashy / Big bags, price tags / You know all I wear is name brands / I’m flashy,” Petras coos) the day before the album dropped.

Obituaries: Métis Country Star Ray St. Germain, Rush Producer Peter Collins and More

This week, we also have Canadian tributes to witty Songsmiths Kinky Friedman and Martin Mull, and we also acknowledge the passing of Crazy Town singer Shifty Shellshock and dance music producer Dario G.

Ray St. Germain, a singer-songwriter, TV host and Métis country music legend from Manitoba, died on June 25, at age 83. He had been living with Parkinson's disease.

Canadian Press reports that "St. Germain started his music career at age 14 in the country band the Rhythm Ranch Boys, first playing the accordion and singing, and later adopting the guitar with a little inspiration from Elvis. His first television appearance was on the cross-Canada singing competition 'Talent Caravan' in 1958, where he won the local series."
