Sedgeley lays down danceable grooves in their latest soul-soaked Pop hit “Dance with Your Lover”

Dancefloors across the globe may remain desolate, but that hasn’t stopped artists such as Sedgeley from producing seductively sweet tracks. Their latest release “Dance with Your Lover” is the amorous escapism that the airwaves have been crying out for.

There’s a beguilingly nostalgic air behind the track which contains plenty of appeal for fans of artists such as Seal, and aural nostalgia is more important now more than ever. It draws us back to a time where our lives weren’t quite so consumed with chaos and uncertainty. The sentimental air to Dance with Your Lover is consuming from the first verse. When the vocal sincerity hits, expect your soul to melt into the organic rhythmic alchemy of this stunningly produced release.

There’s plenty more in the pipeline from the London-based artist in 2020 and beyond. Save a spot on your radar.

YXL AYO takes the title back from Eilish with his RnB hit “Bad Guy”

Billie Eilish certainly didn’t claim ‘Bad Guy’ as a title, but she made it hard for any other artists to make it their own. Up and coming RnB artist YXL AYO soulfully succeeded with their 2020 release.

Bad Guy is a return to form for YXL AYO. But this time, with producer Super Beats on side, he’s cooked up a melodic aural storm which the airwaves simply can’t ignore.

The transfixing grooving rhythms easily distinguish themselves as superior from the rest while YXL AYO will remind you why you fell in love with RnB in the first place with their vocals; the unfiltered and indulgent romanticism which you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

Kayshawn takes us to the Heartbreak Hotel in their hot new Pop single

After their 2018 debut, there’s been no stopping the trailblazing Pop artist Kayshawn. Their latest single “Heartbreak Hotel” alchemically finds the perfect balance of compassion and romanticism.

You just can’t help but be drawn into the almost Neo-noir imagery as you listen to the stylistically moody EDM beats carve lush, seductive and atmospheric melodies.

Abrupt endings in tracks are usually a sign on sloppy production, but the way Kayshawn chooses to close Heartbreak Hotel is ingeniously subversive. It is easy to feel that they’ll have plenty more surprises in store throughout their career. Watch this space.

Eamonn Conor – Dig Deeper: Feverously High-Octane RnB Pop

If you can’t take a trip to the ocean, up and coming Pop artist Eamonn Conor’s latest single “Dig Deeper” is the next best thing. The resolvingly oceanic Pop hit kicks off with a tenderly reassuring intro before the aural waves break and suddenly, you’re immersed in the high-octane feverously passionate production.

The Australian artist could easily fill a stadium with their all-consuming sound which is bound to be a hit with any fans of artists such as Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber. But unlike many Pop artists, Eamonn found enough space in the soundscape to stamp down his signature sound. If artists climbed the Pop charts on the merit of their vocals alone, you’d find Eamonn’s name right at the top. The unfaltering nature of their flawlessly extended harmonic howls is enough to make your soul quiver.

Tune into RnB Artist TOVA’s latest single “Frequency”

Frequency is the latest single to drop from RnB Pop artist TOVA. With their modern and stylistic approach to the genre, they pulled RnB in a brand-new direction.

The production may not have been the cleanest and there was slight discord left in the mix, but there’s no doubting after hearing Frequency that TOVA’s sound possesses plenty of commercial potential. With the hook right before the chorus, the form of the trancey beats will stick with you for long after the track has faded to a close. And notably, they held nothing back lyrically. It perfectly captures how it feels to fall in love in 2020.

Big Frank – Jealous: Floor-Filling RnB Pop

US RnB Pop artist Big Frank has dropped plenty of fresh hits, but their groovingly euphoric floor-filler “Jealous” is the perfect for their authentically soulful approach to Pop.

The sonic fuzzy synth lines fizz around the snappy danceable beats while Big Frank lays down their playfully harmonic vocals. Jealous may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s plenty of magnetism in Jealous thanks to the high-energy vocals which definitely won’t fail to pull you into the eccentric mix.

If you’re looking for more aural odes to hedonism for your playlists, you’ll strike gold with Jealous.

Evadaze Ft. Lachlan Andrews – ‘Are We Still Good?’: Perfect summer lockdown electropop

‘Are We Still Good?’ could be the story of 1,000,000 fledgeling lock-down romances, soon-to-be couples forced into isolation and unsure what, if anything, comes next. Catchy, bouncy, electronic pop perfectly backs singer Evadaze’s breathy delivery, guest vocalist Lachlan Andrews delivering a spicy counterpoint in this two-way conversation about love, life, and what might be.

It’s catchy and well-produced, the piano-led melody leaving plenty of space around Shortt’s vocals; the hook finds its way into your head, ear-worm like, and stays put around Lachlan and Shortt’s vocal interplay on the final chorus. A perfect summer antidote to lockdown blues.

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.
