It was good news for Mariah Carey fans worldwide when she announced early this year a new deal with Epic Records and a reteaming with the legendary L.A Reid on the production of her forthcoming album.

Today she dropped the only new recording from her new upcoming Greatest Hits album (set for release 18th May) entitled, ‘Infinity‘. We all love Mariah for her incredible vocal runs, her authentic soulful ballad sound and her classic break up lyrics, all of which can be found on this new track!

With L.A Reid on production, this track really does sound like the signature Mariah sound from the 90’s is back. The question is – are the lyrics a dig at ex-husband Nick Cannon? Take a listen below and decide for yourself…

Mariah Carey – Infinity


Erro gives us the perfect start to 2014 by releasing his new single ‘Anymore’, a soulful infectious track about the breakdown of a relationship, it has an old school vibe with Erro’s contemporary twist. The single is the first release from his upcoming album ‘B-Sides, Features & Heartaches’, a collection of previously unreleased singles and songs by other artists which Erro features on, set for release on February 4th. He then promises to release his 9th studio album featuring all new material later in the year.

Enjoy the new track and for those of you in and around London, you can catch Erro performing live at Clapham Grand on Friday 7th February. He is one of the best performers I’ve seen, outstanding vocals, amazing band, he’s humble, really interactive with the crowd and he’s got jokes too – a 2014 must for Soul and RnB fans!

Occasionally great albums go unnoticed and are missed for some reason, I have just discovered one of the best albums I’ve heard all year which was released last month but seems to have been widely overlooked- ‘Saint Heron.‘ It’s a compilation album released by Solange Knowle’s label; Saint Records and features 11 independent artists including Solange herself, Sampha, Cassie and Jhene Aiko.

This is no ordinary compilation, it is organic RnB; soulful and eclectic, every track is unique in style yet they all compliment each other beautifully. It is a great showcase of emerging talent in the genre and has led me to discover artists I hadn’t previously heard like BC Kingdom and Kelela, it also shows Cassie taking her music in a much more soulful, mature direction so looking forward to new material from her.

There is an energy about the album that’s exhilarating, these artists are all making their music their way and it acts as a teaser leaving you wanting more from all of them. If you want to here something fresh and soulful get a copy of Saint Heron now – it will not disappoint!

BC Kingdom- Lock Up

Wassup Soulquarians,
so the Mancunian Soulster is back with a killer cut from his forthcoming EP.
Check the video here and leave a constructive comment about what you think about the tune.
Peace, beats n love

So you may not of heard of Kane YET but trust me, you need to get to know, cos this 17 year old is coming with a R&B banger!

The video for ‘Dreams’ (from his debut EP of the same name) was a great success & he’s looking to build on that with his newest release ‘Hard Headed‘. The song has a truly sick beat, cool vocals & a street sound that’s extremely catchy yet still has a fresh, underground feel to it. The track also features Shanna SongBird who adds another dimension without detracting from Kane’s stunning voice.

The video is set on the gritty streets of London & is shot in black & white to give it that honest, real-life feel. I’m loving the song & video so go check it out below. If you wanna hear more from this Chingford lad, then download his EP from Soundcloud

Hey Soulquarians,
it’s been a minute.
Thought i’d pop back with something special to tell ya bout.
Tanya Lacey who happens to be one of my favorite singers outta the UK has dropped her brand new video to her single
“Now That You’re Gone”

The beautiful Bristolian songstress popped into the Mi-Soul HQ for a chat on my radio show last week revealing she had gotten the video ready to roll.
I’m loving this tune which has all the necessary ingredients to be a surefire pop soul hit, so i thought it only right to share it with you.
Enjoy T.L doing her thang!
Peace & Love

Charlie Brown has made a big impact on the R&B scene since his debut single ‘Dependency’ back in December & he recently showed us just how far he’s come when his latest single ‘On My Way’ stormed into 7th place on the UK’s Official Chart.

The track has an uplifting, positive message that is highly relatable & that, combined with a catchy pop inspired sound, has surely been a major factor in its chart success.

Charlie is gearing up to drop his debut album this summer & the R&B world is eager to see what he will deliver. Will it be more of the same urban sounding pop tracks or will he showcase a smoother side with some soulful R&B? Personally I’d like to hear a mixture of styles on the album & I think he could easily pull off a true R&B track that could rival the best in the game.

Check out the acoustic version of ‘On My Way’ below & trust me when I say that you can’t help but be impressed by his vocal ability. This guy can really sing!

If you’ve forgotten what funky soul sounds like then the brilliant debut album from Lady is here to remind you what it’s all about.

UK soul-singer Terri Walker & American Nicole Wray make up the group & their first project combines retro soul with bang-up-to-date R&B vibes for a fresh & individual sound.

Their stunning voices compliment each other perfectly & their talent is truly undeniable. It’s great to hear something a little bit different to the usual chart R&B/Soul sound & it’s still catchy enough to get your head nodding & your feet tapping!

The self-titled album from Lady is out now on iTunes. DOWNLOAD HERE
