In anticipation of the release of Mỳa’s eighth studio album, the songstress has just dropped another sultry and sensual single, but we wouldn’t expect anything less from the stunning superstar! ‘Knock You Out’, produced by MyGuyMars, sees Mỳa’s soft vocals laid over a slow beat, setting an intimate mood in combination with a steady guitar. Mỳa has built us up for the album entitled ‘T.K.O’ since last year. Set for release 20th April 2018 you can expect traditional R&B slow jams including her singles, ‘Ready for Whatever’, ‘Ready, Part II’, ‘You Got Me’ and ‘Damage’.

It would appear living legend, Toni Braxton is yet to un-break her heart based on her new album ‘Sex & Cigarettes’. However, if this is the music she produces with a broken heart we are not sure we want it fixed. Although it’s a short album with only eight tracks, she has some real hits. Her single ‘Long As I Live’ is currently generating a buzz but the single also entitled ‘Sex & Cigarette’ is a real treat for R&B ballad lovers. Braxton pouring out her heart on the record, accompanied by a smooth piano, gives us what I can only describe as soulful deliciousness.

Lauryn Hill is set to embark on a massive tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her debut and only solo studio album ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’.

According to The Fader, she’ll perform the classic LP in full and the 29 date North American tour will commence July 5th 2018 in Virginia Beach.

There’s nothing to suggest she’ll be bringing the tour this side of the pond but hopefully if she does it will truly reflect the albums original versions and not the reggae-rockified versions she delivered last time round.

Watch this space!

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…

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!

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 https://soundcloud.com/kaneofficial
