These days, you listen to R&B without even knowing it. You can’t shuffle through a playlist without stumbling across one. The origins of the genre gains its roots from black culture and has easily become the musical genre that hosts some of the world’s greatest hits.
Hence, with a teeming population of tracks, it’s easy to miss some really amazing songs. In this article, we give you just a few of the many we’ve discovered while surfing through Spotify.
‘Already There’ by Nesta
Lovey-dovey, serenading, with a smooth beat and some reggae feels to the vocals. The Queen’s boy, Nesta, goes above board with this incredible piece of work that’s certain to get lovers in the mood for ungodly things.
‘Darker Place’ by Rachel Chinouriri
Get lost as you revel in the darkness that Rachel provides in this track. There’s just something evil, yet alluring about this track; from her lush voice to the theme of the song – it’ll easily draw in its listeners.
‘Narcissus is Dead’ by Suté Iwar
With consistent amazing music from Tay and Terna Iwar, his brothers, it is beautiful to see how musical the Iwar family is. Something that makes this song captivating is how Suté performs the elements of modern rap and singing by himself which works out so well with the bass and dreamy keyboard notes that’ll get you bopping.
‘Palo Santo’ by Saint Joshua
“I got the Palo Santo, The holy wood”. On first listen, you are sure to replay this song at least ten times. We don’t know how he does it, but Saint Joshua is able to make his beautiful voice stand out even amidst the powerful beat.
‘Brown’ by Kyle Dion
Even if you weren’t born in the 90’s or 80’s, once you listen to this track, you can envision the jazz era. His vocals literally ooze the melanin into your ears, with the bass guitar and lyrics making the lady he’s singing about sound like Aphrodite.
So the next time you need a new addition to your playlist, you can try these absolute bangers that not a lot of people know (but we do because we are music addicts, hehehe).
Summing up a day in Solomon's life would include: anime, manga, marvel breakdowns, writing and workout. If he's not doing any of these, he's either listening to indie pop or fan-boying Dominic Fike.
