Nicole Leaskk has released her strikingly powerful RnB Pop single “Take You Back”

Breaking artist Nicole Leaskk has finally dropped her highly-anticipated RnB Pop single “Take You Back”. The morosely powerful downtempo single illustrates the intensity of the emotions which can arise from amorous indecision while the succinctly poised instrumentals provide captivatingly modernistic melodies.

Nicole Leaskk’s vocals ensure that you feel every ounce of emotion which was projected into the orchestration of the single. And perceptibly, she held nothing back when penning the candid lyrics.

Take You Back is far from your average lovelorn single. It’s striking, it’s stylish and it’s bound to offer plenty of resonance to anyone who knows the feeling of logic and emotions going head to head.

Take You Back is now available to stream on all major platforms via this link.

Henry – You Don’t Need to Know: Smoothly Sentimental RnB Soul

You Don’t Need to Know” is the smooth new soulful jam from up and coming Dublin RnB artist Henry. Elements of the past and the future accessibly combine in the soothingly sentimental soundscape.

The tempo may be low, but the level of evocative appeal is off the charts in the stylistic and slick mix which perfectly accommodates Henry’s soft and sensuously harmonious RnB Pop vocals.

Ireland may not be known for its massive RnB scene, but that may be set to change now that Henry is dropping his accordantly soul-soothing hits on the airwaves. He’s irrefutably one to watch. Up and coming RnB artists who can truly revive the genre and make it ooze contemporary appeal are worth their weight in aural gold.

Up and coming RnB artist Jaye Wood has dropped their amorously sincere single “Trophy Boy”

Jaye Wood

Finding an RnB Pop hit which holds the same level of sincerity as Jaye Wood offered in his latest single Trophy Boy would be like attempting to find a needle in a haystack.

Instead of the usual superficiality offered by love songs, Jaye Wood dug deep lyrically to find sentiments which scream integrity. There’s a smorgasbord of emotion which moves beyond the usual two-dimensional love songs. It recognises that love doesn’t require two perfect infallible people, instead, it requires undying passion. If this sweet summer jam appeased my cold soul, I have plenty of faith that the radio-ready single will warm countless hearts.

Jaye Wood’s latest single Trophy Boy is available to stream on all major streaming services via this link.
