Put Your Self-Worth in Check with Jaonere’s Standout RnB Soul Single “Hopeless”

For a track with such a pessimistic title, Jaonere’s single Hopeless serves up some seriously accordant soul.

The melodically mellow RnB Soul single invites you to slip into the artist’s introspection surrounding their self-worth. And it may inspire you to pontificate on your own. But don’t worry, there’s very little chance of slipping into an existential hole as you listen to the deeply romantic single unfold.

The magnetic grip of the vocal melodies in Hopeless isn’t something that we come across all too often. Neither is the sincerity in the vocal delivery. The London-based singer-songwriter may deliver soulful retro vibes through his music, but you’ll only need to hit play on Hopeless to affirm just how much commercial potential lingers in his sound.

You can check out Jaonere’s single Hopeless along with the rest of his 2020 album All We Have Is Now via Spotify.

By the time you reach the outro, you’ll also have indulged in Jazz-style Blues guitar riffs. Considering that the track kicks off with a fairly simplistic electronic RnB Pop prelude, Your Love takes you on one hell of an aural journey which you’ll undoubtedly want to take time and time again.

Sarah Reynolds – I Need Love: Expressively Powerful RnB Pop

Sarah Reynolds

You’ll find plenty of minced words and sentiment on the airwaves, but with up and coming artist Sarah Reynold’s latest single “I Need Love” you get a fresh cut of emotion.

Sarah Reynolds’ expressively powerful take on an RnB gives you the same iron-wrought emotion of a traditional ballad. Yet I Need Love is a track which takes its own distinctive form through the modern stylistic instrumental arrangement and Sarah Reynold’s tensile evocative vocals.

The open and unabashed lyrics are transfixing from start to finish. No one really likes admitting that they need love; there’s a socially constructed sense of weakness which surrounds it. I Need Love forcibly blew those perceptions out of the water and served a sharp stark reminder that everyone needs love. With that in mind, I Need Love is undoubtedly one of the most powerful singles on the topic of love I’ve heard in a while. And what better date for it to be released on than Valentine’s Day?

I Need Love will be available to stream on all major platforms including Spotify from February 14th.
