LOGUIDICE embraces her bold autonomy in her debut RnB pop EP, ONE.

LOGUIDICE

While most pop artists perform behind façade and ego, the up and coming RnB pop artist LOGUIDICE gives you a multifaceted view of her soulful, spiritual and fierce persona in her debut EP, ONE.

Tracks 1, Mood, is a vibe-heavy sultry RnB hit that shows the Bethlehem, PA-residing artist’s salacious side; nestled beside her demure attitude is her mindful, self-aware lyricism and a gorgeous ‘don’t fuck with me’ sense of soul.

Elevator brings the funk to the EP before track three allows you to respect LOGUIDICE as a pop vocalist as well as a rap artist. The delicious cadence mixed with the hypnotic 90s RnB beats provides alchemic catharsis. To truly demonstrate her versatility, track 4, Overthinkin’ is a sombre downtempo ballad, and the concluding single, Magnetic exhibits the best of the songwriter’s skill when it comes to creating a mood with her atmospherically layered tracks.

No amount of hype put behind LOGUIDICE will ever be hyperbole. We can’t wait to hear how she will follow on from her phenomenally promising debut.

LOGUIDICE’s debut EP, ONE, will be available to stream from October 29th; it is available to stream and download via this link.

Izzy St. Shaw takes the lead with the melody-driven RnB trap track, Money Long.

Texas-born, Atlanta-based RnB trailblazer Izzy St. Shaw has dropped his trippiest track to date with the release of his modern twist on Southern roots, Money Long. Whatever mindset you are in when you hit play, Money Long will make it sweeter as it explores the paradoxical place of money in our lives.

The wavy lo-fi RnB trap pop track comes as a result of Shaw’s eclectic affinity for Coldplay, Tame Impala and Kendrick Lamar, and, of course, his authentic talent that we can’t wait to hear more of. He’s got the soul, he’s got the style, and the lyrical intellect. What more could you possibly ask for?

The official video for Money Long dropped on October 14th; you can check it out for yourselves via YouTube.

King Brian calls for an end to injustice with his latest cinematic RnB single, Reparations

King Brian, AKA Brian Christopher Brown, is an American singer-songwriter, dancer, filmmaker and producer; he poured all of his cinematic poise into his latest single, Reparations. Starting with the hard-hitting lyrics ‘we’ve been cursed for so long, but we are still strong’, emotional investment in the single is non-optional.

His latest single does plenty more than just run you through 400 years of sufferance and oppression; it acts as a celebration of every triumph over adversity. King Brian takes plenty of influence from artists such as Michael Jackson, Tupac and Prince; there may not be much sonic resemblance in the soundscape. Yet, Reparations undoubtedly carries the same sense of soul that will test your own soul’s capacity to feel.

The Radio Edit of Reparations is now available to stream and purchase via Bandcamp.

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.

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.

jackson r.a. – Little Love: Intricately Layered Experimental RnB

https://music.apple.com/us/album/little-love/1515797869?i=1515797870

Columbus up and coming RnB artist jackson r.a. has recently dropped their standout single “Little Love”. Any fans of modernistic RnB Pop are going to want to hear it.

Little Love is a soulful feat of electronically mastered experimentalism which isn’t afraid to take RnB down bold new aural avenues. The raw undiluted emotion is fed into an intricately layered soundscape. But thanks to the instrumental hooks and the artist’s magnetic vibe, it’s all too easy to get hooked into the tonally diverse hit which demands repeat attention.

jackson r.a. may be fresh from their inception, but their sound is equally as fresh. Get them on your radar.

You can check out Little Love for yourselves by heading over to iTunes or SoundCloud.
