RnB newcomer Tory Lanez has been creating a solid buzz about his music since his infamous tribute song to Teyana Taylor in early 2014 and his subsequent acclaimed mixtape releases over the past 2 years.

He has just dropped 2 new mixtapes which are available for free download, ‘The New Toronto‘ and ‘Chixtape 3‘. ‘The New Toronto‘ is more of a rap project and not really where this artist’s strength lies, whilst ‘Chixtape 3‘ contains some really decent RnB tracks, many that sample from or rework 90’s RnB classics from the likes of Usher and Jagged Edge with flawless production from Play Picasso.

Check ‘You Got it Worse‘, which borrows from the Usher classic ‘You Got It Bad’ featured on Chixtape 3 below and download the new mixtapes here

They debuted on OVO’s Beats 1 show in October and have had everyone mystified about who DVSN are ever since!

We’ve been treated to four tracks now, all available on iTunes but that’s as much as we know – no artist details have been revealed. We do know that producer Nineteen85 (producer of Drake’sHotline Bling‘, ‘Too Much‘ and more) is involved in the project and that they are definitely ones to watch for 2016!

In case there was any doubt – Janet Jackson sends us a reminder today that she is back in a BIG way!! After announcing the title of her new album, ‘Unbreakable‘ (set for release 2nd October) a couple of months ago, she has embarked on her world tour and brought us tracks ‘No Sleeeep‘ and ‘Unbreakable‘.

The third single from the forthcoming new album, ‘Burn It Up‘ hears Janet on more of a dance vibe, teaming up with Missy Elliott and with a Naughty Boy remix of the track already in the pipeline. Whilst the more soulful fans will no doubt prefer ‘No Sleeeep‘ to this, the track is undeniably infectious and proof of Miss Jackson’s versatility, plus it feels so good to hear Missy killing it on a new track!!

Check ‘Burn It Up‘ below and buy it on Itunes here.

Hey Soulsters,

I’m a massive fan of Sinead Harnett who’s voice can be heard on future classics from Snakehips, Disclosure and her own killer cut “She Aint Me”

S.H came by Mi Soul to grace us with an interview giving us a heads up on what’s to come on the forthcoming album (as yet untitled) as well as performing two Xclusive acoustic tracks, current single “Do It Anyway” and the fantastic “Dollar Bill”

Can’t wait to catch Sinead perform at XOYO October 14th 2015
In the meantime…Check the interview HERE 

And enjoy this superb version “Do It Anyway” Original version out now!!

The powerhouse that is Phonte and Nicolay aka The Foreign Exchange are back with a new album entitled, ‘Tales From The Land Of Milk And Honey‘ set for release on August 21st. This new project sees soul singer Carmen Rogers joining the group as well as long term collaborator Zo! and vocalist Tamisha Waden.

Arguably their most eclectic album to date, ‘Tales‘ explores throwback sounds, stepper vibes and even dips into some house on, ‘Asking For a Friend‘. This is not the typical sound we are used to from FE, but it is a nod to the ever evolving genre of RnB and proves that they can maintain relevancy over their 10 year career.

Moments of brilliance come from, ‘Body‘ and ‘As Fast As You Can‘ with vocals from Carmen and Phonte complimenting each other beautifully and ‘Face In the Reflection‘ shines lyrically, reminding us that these guys really can do it all!

Click here for an EXCLUSIVE first listen in full to the album and watch the video below for the first single, ‘Asking For a Friend.
