This week, Kendrick Lamar linked up with his previous collaborator Rapsody on a new track, the Wu-Tang Clan dropped a new single, and Cut Copy released its fifth studio album.

Here are the 5 best songs from the past week that you can stream right now:

Wu-Tang Clan -- 'Lesson Learn'd'

On 'Lesson Learn'd,' Wu-Tang Clan rapper Inspektah Deck disses Clan-antagonist and imprisoned 'pharma bro' Martin Shkreli for his drastic price inflation of a prescription drug, while Wu affiliate Redman puts in a stellar guest verse.

Cut Copy -- 'Counting Down'

The strengths of Australian electro-rock band Cut Copy's fifth album, 'Haiku From Zero,' are epitomized on 'Counting Down,' a buoyant track that contrasts bright guitars and synths with deceptively dark imagery.

Charlotte Gainsbourg -- 'Deadly Valentine'

Charlotte Gainsbourg -- the actress, singer, and daughter of legendary French artist Serge Gainsbourg -- explained her breathy and compelling electronic song 'Deadly Valentine' by saying it 'mixes wedding vows with an offbeat tone.'

Arcade Fire -- 'Mind Games' (John Lennon Cover)

Arcade Fire's Spotify Studios cover of John Lennon's 1973 song 'Mind Games' doesn't stray far from its excellent source material, but it does add a fresh set of orchestral strings and an extra minute of playing time.

Rapsody -- 'Power' (feat. Kendrick Lamar)

After collaborating with Kendrick Lamar on one of the best songs from his 2015 masterpiece 'To Pimp a Butterfly,' Rapsody nabs an intricate, boastful verse from the TDE rapper on 'Power,' a standout track from her new album, 'Laila's Wisdom.'
