Meanwhile a host of indie artists are also making waves with their new tunes including Tank and the Bangas Savannah Ré and Phabo. Here are our top R&B picks to check out this week.
Alex Isley and Jack Dine – Marigold
The ninetrack LP celebrates and symbolizes emotional complexity. Isley told Apple Music Marigolds celebrate memories. Or they symbolize celebration they symbolize memories. They symbolize joy and happiness but they also can symbolize darker times like pain and heartbreak and loss. And so that stuck out to me that particular explanation. Isleys soothing tone paired with Dines production allows these two to never miss.
Kehlani feat. Justin Bieber – up at night
The third single from Baelanis forthcoming studio album is a fun love song over a catchy beat paired with sultry vocals as she and Bieber sing about the joys of being healthily obsessed with your relationship.
Eric Roberson – Lessons
Following the release of Lessons Remix featuring Anthony Hamilton Kevin Ross and Raheem DeVaughn Roberson has released his featurelength project of the same name. God has a funny way of showing you lessons he shared when speaking on the new soulful project that details the ebb and flow of love vulnerability and the ultimate commitment.
