Over recent years, R&B artists have steered away from only releasing music on certain days of the week. Since there’s always something new coming out, we know it’s sometimes difficult to stay updated all things R&B — even on your days off over the weekend.
Although we’re always here to give you day-by-day updates, we figured giving you a recap of some of the best R&B tracks and moments from weekend’s past (and sometimes a little before) at the top of each week is a great way for you to hear all the good stuff in one place. And with some of the top R&B artists releasing new songs, announcing plans for upcoming albums and tours, 2020 is really off to an amazing start for our beloved genre.
So, if you happened to miss out on what’s been going down on the R&B front, here’s a short list of what you may have missed.
DVSN’s “A Muse” was the track that we needed for 2020.
Canadian duo DVSN is keeping R&B going with their sexy single “A Muse.” The perfect tune for setting the mood for cuffing season, the song is one that — if you haven’t heard it yet — will captivate you with the first listen. Here’s hoping that this is the year that we get a follow-up to 2017’s Morning After.
R&B songbird Kirby just dropped a new project and Sis. is it.
If good R&B is what you’ve been looking for, then you can guarantee you’ll get some of that when you listen to Kirby’s new project. If you haven’t heard of the Tennessee-bred songstress prior to reading this, you’ll definitely want to revisit her previously released material after hearing the seven sultry tracks that encompass Sis. Known for penning Rihanna’s hit single “FourFiveSeconds” and Beyoncé’s “Die With You,” first time listeners can expect the same pen game energy on Kirby’s project for herself.
