There will always be space on the airwaves for powerful R&B Pop ballads – especially when they contain the same levels of vocal talent in JUIC3’s latest single “Take My Love” which was released in Feb 2019.
Take My Love may be a fairly archetypal R&B Pop ballad track, yet, that has only amplified the accessibility of the single. Take My Love is just one of the up and coming artist’s tracks which allows fans of JUIC3 to find resonance and empowerment from her overwhelmingly strong vocal deliveries.
Many artists are inclined to over-romanticise the topics which they allude to in their tracks, but JUIC3 lays it out bare and makes no bones about stating that toxic bad relationship bubbles always need to be popped. I mean, we definitely had enough ‘I want you back’ tracks from the genre, didn’t we?

“Back Up Off Me” is the latest single from up and coming Hip Hop R&B artist Cedric Robinson Knight who laid down a laidback rhythm paired with infrequent yet effective lyrical versing.
With the single which was released in March 2019 Cedric Robinson Knight proved they can weave together indulgent instrumental melodies which sit in perfect synergy with the lyrical layering. There’s plenty of spatial effect put to good use; ensuring that throughout Back Up Off Me you never let your attention slip from the magnetism of the beat. Yet, the lyrical depth of the single was left fairly shallow. If Cedric Robinson Knight dared to pair his poignant production style with compelling lyrics, there’d be no stopping him.

We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of Yeray Rivera’s latest single “Dreamtime Memories”; the up and coming artist may not have the most distinctive style of R&B Pop we’ve ever heard, but there are plenty of reasons to fall enamoured by the soft and sweepingly rhythmic soundscapes.
The slow and sonorous progressions of the single allow you to appreciate the melancholy in the lack of momentum. The tentative pacing was an excellent stylistic choice to allow the contemporarily resonant vocals to truly hit where they were intended while the crisp and clear production on the single flooded the track with commercial potential.
You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out the single for yourself, but you’ll be in for a treat when it drops.
2019 is set to be the year Fer Rivero evolves from an up and coming artist into an established R&B Pop icon. He’s already well on his way after amassing thousands of international fans and millions of streams for his ability to create captivatingly fluid soundscapes which give you very little choice in whether the sentiment resonates.
If you haven’t put Fer Rivero on your radar and your playlists yet their latest single “Tinder Loves” is the perfect introduction to their sound. The slow and sonorous R&B Pop soundscape addresses a very contemporary issue. Tinder is tedious, frustrating, and an empty time vacuum; a platform for the hollow. We all know it, but no one has expressed it quite as poignantly as the Spanish-born artist did with Tinder Loves.

While many urban artists create romantically inclined tracks, very few of those tracks resonate with the same level of sincerity as found within up and coming artist Bennet Stephens recent single “Heartbeat”. Instead of running with self-aggrandization and ego, the lyrics to Heartbeat are some of the most honest we’ve heard in a long time.
Along with ensuring his lyricism could never be described as typical, the beat behind the sun-soaked single also brings something completely new to the R&B Pop genre. With chord progressions which would be just as at home in a track from the 1975 there’s a captivating level of authenticity behind the track which also carries elements of Afro Beats and Reggae. With the mention of those two genres, you know you’re in for a good-vibe hit from Heartbeat.

While not every R&B Pop artist takes their beats seriously, or in fact considers orchestrating a soundscape which will allow them to distinguish themselves apart from the rest; Kai Justine perceptibly isn’t your average artist.
It should come as no surprise that the West London-based singer songwriter also produces her own beats considering that they synergise with her vocal energy and style so closely. The bass-heavy rhythms perfectly match Kai Justine’s domineeringly magnetic vocal delivery which gives you very little choice in tearing your attention away from her latest single “BOOKS”. If any R&B Pop single has the ability to fill a dancefloor it’s BOOKS. Yet, it’s easy to feel that with a little more lyrical depth the single could have been improved slightly.

“With You” is one of the latest tracks to be released by the Keymakers who may have seen their inception in 2017, but 2019 is set to be the making of the R&B Pop artists.
With their smooth rhythms which lie in the intricate layers of their sound, it’s not hard to see why they haven’t struggled to amass such a large following who are looking to tune into the lush lines of their music.
The downtempo single could almost be a described as a ballad, yet, it’s hard to think of another ballad which has such a perceptible sense of rhythm. The atmospherics which they were able to conjure in the soundscape was also nothing short of alchemy. Yet, perhaps the most arrestive element to With You is the vocals, while they may be fairly soft, the passion which also bleeds through the lyrics doesn’t fail to resonate.

There aren’t many artists who can boast similar song writing skills to Nile Rodgers. Yet after hearing R&B Pop artist ASTN’s latest single “Cruel” its safe to say the reminiscence is behind the power of the hooks and the tinge of upbeat euphoria is right there.
As soon as the track kicks into verse the infectious melody progresses in a way which is hard to predict as lashings of Funk get weaved into the sunny soundscape. ASTN’s vocal ability is just as striking as his ability to cook up the perfect Pop hit, with plenty of switch-ups in vocals styles you’re treated to the full range of his vocal diversity and each line is as arrestive as the last. On top of the song writing and vocals, the multi-instrumentalist and self-producing artist also finds a distinctive way to add his unique up-vibe edge into the mix. In short, Cruel is very likely to become your next Pop earworm.

“Lets Do it Again” is the standout single from up and coming R&B Pop artist DNigel’s LP “Focus”. Despite being released over three years ago, there are very few artists who can match the instant draw of the producer and beatmaker’s contemporarily fresh mix.
There’s plenty of R&B roots embedded into the mix of the track, yet the multi-layered Trap beat gives Let’s Do it Again a pioneering twist, allowing DNigel to stamp down his signature style. As you’d expect from an R&B track, there’s plenty of romanticism riddled into the lyrics, and DNigel definitely didn’t hold back in terms of salacity. Yet, with vocals as clean and powerful as he poured into the mic with Let’s Do it Again, the soulfully resounding artist could pretty much get away with anything.
