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.

Lil Xay has released the lead single from their game-changing forthcoming RnB album “Freshmen Veteran”

https://open.spotify.com/album/67SzmqInWjZxhmqvJMW3sR

Fly is the first release from breaking RnB artist Lil Xay’s forthcoming album Freshmen Veteran which is due to drop later this summer. The tone in the exotic beats couldn’t be warmer and the distinction in Lil Xay’s vocal delivery couldn’t be any more striking.

Before you have chance to get complacent with the smooth grooving downtempo vibes, V3DA’s stunningly seductive Pop vocals kick in to add yet another amorous dynamic to the jazz-laden soundscape.

Fly is as authentic as it is soulful. I may not be in possession of a crystal ball, but it is clear to see that Lil Xay has the kind of talent which can’t be ignored. He couldn’t be closer to the mark with the way he captured the feeling of thinking you’re going insane when you fall for someone.

Alt RnB artist John Garrison has made their debut with the eccentrically funk-infused single Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That

https://open.spotify.com/track/2KgJE2bVKYkcKljS8a86B8

There may be a serious amount of soul in breaking artist John Garrison’s debut single Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That, but that didn’t stop him from showing his magnetically playful side in the funky grooving hit.

With lyrics like “I’m just loving that someone wants to see me smile” your soul would need to have checked out not to be endeared by the debut. If the lyrics don’t do it for you, their buttery smooth vocals and the infectiously melodic beats may just do the trick.

Any fans of the American Funk Rock band Wild Cherry will be equally as enamoured by John Garrison’s captivatingly flawless radio-ready single which is accessible from the first hit. Naturally, we can’t wait to hear what comes next.

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.

K. Rose – Nothing: Strikingly Soulful Ambient Neo-Soul RnB

Breaking RnB singer-songwriter K. Rose has released their most strikingly soulful single yet with “Nothing”. It may be laced with romantic lament, but it’s anything but your average lovelorn single.

The stylistically ambient beats which were crafted by Zane98 set the perfect tone for K. Rose’s soft, smooth and harmonically flawless vocals which run through the candidly relatable lyrics.

While not all breakups are the same, a running theme between them is the sense of worthlessness which can lead you to believe that there’s nothing left. K. Rose resonantly captures that emotion, if you’re capable of empathy, expect this track to hit hard. It may be tonally warm and inviting, but the level of emotion which was projected through the lyrics is haunting.

Pop, RnB and Hip Hop all euphorically converge in the high-vibe grooving hit Friday Night which is the latest release from breaking US Hip Hop artist YT HellaKingin.

To add even more dynamism and fire to the mix, YT HellaKingin hooked up with two urban legends in their own right, Heartbreaka and Dale Keano. Soul spills in equal measure from the romantically sweet lyrics, the warm beats and vocals as they switch between arrestive Rap versing and smooth crooning. And thanks to the flawless production, tracks don’t come much more radio-ready than Friday Night.

In short, if you’re looking for an entrancingly tropic aural pick me up, look no further.

In the wake of George Floyd’s Death, RnB Soul artist Brent Williams asks the devastating question of “What If It Was Me” in their latest single

https://music.apple.com/ca/album/what-if-it-was-me/1522186448?i=1522186449

RnB Soul artist Brent Williams’ latest single “What If It Was Me” asks a sobering question which has been on the minds of black people for generations. Not just after George Floyd’s murder.

While I’ve heard innumerable justified aggressive attacks on systematic racial oppression lately, Brent Williams took a more soulful approach to point out the devastating reality for every black person living in fear.

Hopefully, their release can help the narrowminded realise the utter absurdity in racial prejudice. On the flip side, I can only imagine how many people fighting the same battle as Brent Williams will find invaluable resonance in this single. It may be a downtempo ambient RnB hit, but that doesn’t prevent What If It Was Me from hitting excruciatingly hard.

You can check out What If It Was Me which dropped on July 10th by heading over to Apple Music.

We’re all feeling a little caged and frustrated at the state of the world right now, SLSTRSS latest single offers you an inspirationally powerful different outlook. Refusing to deal with the world as it is doesn’t have to mean resigning in apathy, as SLSTRSS poignantly alludes, we can simply start to be better.

Despite the smooth soulful production, Better is definitely one of the most hard-hitting tracks I’ve heard this year. If you’re looking for an empowering aural pick me up, look no further.
