It’s been 5 years since he released his last album, ‘Back to Love‘ and let’s be honest the RnB scene has been missing the smokey soulful sounds of the incredible Anthony Hamilton.
Luckily the wait is over and he is back in a big way with the uplifting and anthemic ‘Amen‘ produced by James Poyser and Salaam Remi. Hamilton has been back in the studio working on a new album which will hopefully drop later in the year.

US singer/songwriter has been making waves in the alt-RnB since the release of his debut EP, ‘Zebra‘ in 2014. Last year his single, ‘Weight in Gold‘ caught global attention when Zane Lowe announced it as his debut ‘World Exclusive‘ track on Beats 1.
Currently working on his debut album and crafting a sound that’s somewhere between Maxwell, Sampha and Frank Ocean, Gallant will be performing live at the London Edition Hotel on March 03rd, get your tickets here!
Alt-RnB, Indie RnB, call it what you like this new electro infused style of RnB which has been growing over the past few years is hot! Opal Blue, a new UK based duo are pretty left of this sub-genre but there’s a soulful edge to their sound which is enigmatic, distinctive and at times haunting.
There is little info around Opal Blue at this early stage, but we do know they are getting ready to drop their debut EP soon. If you’re a fan of sounds like Majid Jordan and The XX you will love these guys!

RnB fans will remember the days of killer tracks from Tank in the early 2000′s like ‘Better Man‘ and ‘Maybe I Deserve‘, more recently we’ve seen him make up one third of group TGT alongside Tyrese and Ginuwine. He expressed frustrations via social media last year about the lack of support for RnB from fans and the industry and announced he would no longer be making music of the genre. Luckily he has had a change of heart and is storming back with conviction on his 8th studio album, ‘Sex Love & Pain III‘.
Sex, Love & Pain III is a solid RnB album, with collaborations from Shawn Stockman (Boyz II Men), Chris Brown and Wale, there’s a nice blend of up tempo tracks as well as smooth slow jamz with Tank’s vocals sounding better than ever. There are a couple of weak moments on the album with, ‘She Wit The s***’ and ‘F***** With Me‘ but they are few and Tank proves his relevancy on distinctive, modern cuts like, ‘I Love Ya‘ and ‘#BDay‘ as well as delivering those ballads we know and love him for, ‘Already In Love‘ and ‘Him Her Them‘.
With this album Tank proves that RnB it still strong and that he is here to stay.
