The 10-track album features the singles ‘Bad Bad News’, ‘Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand’ and ‘Beyond’. It’s a contemporary soul/R&B album, however, he has Jazz/Funk driven tracks such as ‘Bad Bad News’. Leon Bridges rose to notoriety in 2015 when he released his first album, ‘Coming Home’, the album channelled early ’60s R&B which caught the attention of many. Bridges sweet soul music is bringing a new flavour to R&B and this new album is cementing his path within the industry.

Known for his R&B flavour, Ne-Yo has just dipped his toe into the pop/ dancehall sound. His new single ‘Push Back’, explores a different side to Ne-Yo which I didn’t see coming, especially compared to his last record ‘Good Man’. ‘Push Back’ isn’t R&B but there is still something about it that has me hooked, featuring pop star, Bebe Rexha and UK rapper, Stefflon Don the single could very well be the perfect summer jam.

The single will feature on Ne-Yo’s upcoming album, ‘Good Man’ set for release June 8. The album will feature 2Chainz, PartyNextDoor, Ty Dolla $ign and others.
