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, doing interviews and tv performances, 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.

Iyla releases video for “Cash Rules” featuring Method Man.
Continuing her unique brand of visually enticing visuals, Iyla has released the video for her new single “Cash Rules.” The song is is built around the Wu-Tang classic “C.R.E.A.M,” but Iyla flips it with “You say cash rules everything around you, what about love?” The song features Wu-Tang member Method Man and the results are brilliant. Both the song and video have tons of replay value.
