Trap and RnB Converge in YaBoyAMP’s Latest Single “HENNESSY”

Up and coming Alt RnB Hip Hop artist YaBoyAMP dropped their latest single “HENNESSY” on February 19th. Once the instrumental hooks grip you, you’ll be at the mercy of the immersive melodies in this unique convergence of Trap and RnB.

YaBoyAMP’s constantly evolving vocals switch from smooth and steady Trap bars to harmonically pitch-perfect RnB Pop vocals allowing HENNESSY to unfold as a dynamic and well-rounded hit.

The lyrics may be on the more salacious side, but that’s not to say that HENNESSY is without its romanticism. Before you reach the outro, you’ll get to appreciate the full extent of YaBoyAMP’s lyrical waxing skills. But it’s much more than just their ability to keep to perfect meter and rhyme on offer. Within the final verses, you’ll get a potent serving of undiluted soul which will stay with you for long after the track has faded to a close.

Chris Register – Out of Breath: Eccentrically Expressive Sticky Sweet Trap

Anyone who appreciates their Hip Hop on the more alternative side will definitely want to pay attention to up and coming Rap artist Chris Register’s latest single “Out of Breath”.

Experimentalism and expression are the essence of Out of Breath.

There may be aural quantum leaps in terms of style, momentum and tone which will throw you away from the arrestive melodies, but it’s all too easy to find your footing in Chris Register’s nuancedly smooth flow once more.

This sticky-sweet Trap hit may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But if undiluted, playful ingenuity is your bag, you won’t need to think twice when it comes to adding Out of Breath to your playlists.

Rielle – Can’t Do This: Empoweringly All-Consuming RnB Pop

Right from the first few notes in RnB artist Rielle’s latest single “Can’t Do This”, you brace yourself to thrown into a hard-hitting melancholic single.

But what the prelude doesn’t prepare you for is the all-consuming nature of the chorus which allows Can’t Do This to stand as the ultimate testament to Rielle’s ability to orchestrate resonantly raw RnB Pop hits.

Even though the track title sounds fairly defeatist, Can’t Do This is irrefutably one of the most empowering RnB Pop singles we’ve heard in quite some time. The resonance isn’t hard to find in the lyrics, especially if you’ve ever had your self-esteem shattered by someone too blind to see your worth in the first place. There may not be many vocal melodies which can compel you to join in on the chorus before you’ve even learnt the lyrics to a track, Rielle has audibly made up for the shortfall with Can’t Do This.

For his latest track “Song Cry (Murder on My Mind)”, up and coming Alt Hip Hop artist RXCH teamed up with BIG HILLI, FAM and BIG HOOD THA KING YH to create a track which is as commanding as it is emotive.

Through a mix of contemporary RnB, New Wave Trap, and Hip Hop, RXCH was able to offer fiery energy alongside soul-deep sentiment. It’s definitely not every day we can say that.

While the vocal reverb felt slightly excessive in parts, Song Cry was still a solid track. It just felt slightly criminal to gloss over the emotion which was projected into the mix.

It’s easy to anticipate big things to come from RXCH, their sound isn’t just ahead of the curve, it’s created a brand-new trajectory in the evolution of RnB Hip Hop. I’d put them on your radar sooner rather than later.

RnB, Pop and Hip Hop soulfully intertwine in Prejon’s standout single “Take Off”

If breaking Alt RnB artist Prejon has evaded your radar up until now, it’s definitely time to find out what the hype surrounding his genre-mashing sound is all about. Their standout single “Take Off” serves as the perfect introduction to their smooth, constraint-crumbling urban style

Within the sweet and steady mix, you’ll find nuanced elements of Hip Hop, Pop, Reggae and Neo-Soul. Despite Prejon’s tendency to create fresh new urban soundscapes, he has kept the groove in Take Off accessibly arrestive. Take Off may venture far from what you would expect from an archetypal RnB track, but one thing which Prejon did keep traditional was the romantically-rendered soul which is poured into the vibing mix.

If your soul is still functioning, you’ll instantly warm to Prejon thanks to the artist’s charismatically humble vocal delivery which seamlessly switches from pitch-perfect harmonics to accordant Rap verses. And you can expect just as many evolutions in the sun-soaked beats.

Rome – 4get: Sentimentally Soulful RnB Hip Hop

If you hold any preconceptions about the Chicago Rap scene, prepare to throw them out of the window after you hit play on music from breaking RnB Hip Hop artist Rome.

Since they made their debut in 2017, Rome has been responsible for the creation of plenty of urban aural alchemy. Yet, the perfect introduction to their sentimentally soulful songwriting style is “4get”.

There may be plenty of melancholy in 4get. But Rome was able to infuse fractures of optimism within the instrumental melodies which offset the plaintive emotion which comes as a courtesy from the softly versed vocals and the humble introspection found in the lyrics. If you want to check if your soul still works, press play.

You can check out Rome’s standout single 4get for yourselves via Spotify where you’ll also be able to find their more recent releases.

Boasty – LUV (ohh nana): A Magnetic Offering of Smooth Melodic RnB Hip Hop

Up and coming artist Boasty found the perfect balance between sugar-coated charisma and abrasive swagger in their standout single “LUV (ohh nana)” which is a magnetic offering of smooth melodic RnB-laced Hip Hop.

With lyrics which are just as slick and contemporary as the party Hip Hop instrumentals, LUV is a vibing mix which any fans of modern fresh Rap will want on their playlists.

Rappers who keep it real with their lyrics are sadly a rarity in 2020. Yet this London-based artist allows his tracks to flow with a candid resonant feel so you connect with the Rap bars as much as you do with the melodically crafted beats.

Jae Casino – Across Town featuring Just Nikki and Sunni

Orchestral Hip Hop preludes don’t come much more arrestive than what you’ll find in Jae Casino’s latest single “Across Town” featuring Just Nikki and Sunni.

But it isn’t too long before the equally-as-captivating wavy polyphonic Hip Hop beats kick in with the ethereal orchestral layers weaving behind them. Vocally, Across Town bounces between deadpan convictive Rap in the verses and RnB harmonics in the chorus injecting plenty of dynamic versatility into the mix along with the added bonus of collaborative chemistry.

With the midtempo flow, the high polish on the production, and the solid hooks in Across Town, it’s a track which demands repeat attention. Any fans of contemporary experimental Hip Hop will definitely want it on their playlists.
