As 2014 shapes up to be one of the most impressive years of R&B that we’ve seen in a while, it’s only natural that we cite some of the genres top performers who have come off of their hiatus as partial reasoning for the statement.
See what we mean after the jump!
With summer right around the corner, the arrival of the BET Awards is right on its heels. Sparking interest with the nominations in each category, more buzz has been brought up front for the premiere event as the list of performers has now surfaced. Unveiling the star studded performers who will grace the stage earlier today, the June 29th showcase is sure to top the viewings chart this year.
Amongst the talents to do their thing will be exceptional talents Usher and former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson. While both artists are preparing to release their respective full length projects in the latter portions of this year, their arrival and performance at this year’s award show is very much anticipated. Usher’s single “Good Kisser” and J. Hud’s “Walk It Out” have been receiving great feedback from fans.
Also on the bill will be mastermind Pharrell – who has had an exceptional year already, thanks to his global smash “Happy” and acclaimed sophomore album G I R L. Along with R&B heartthrob Trey Songz, who has another big hit this year with “NaNa,” and will release his anticipated sixth studio album Trigga on July 1.
On the rap side of things, fans can expect to see Young Money stars, Lil Wayne & Drake.
Sure to be an experience for all to enjoy, here’s to hoping each star adds a little something special to their performance on one of the best nights of the summer!
