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 on all things R&B.
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 the 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. Some of the top R&B artists are releasing new music, doing interviews, and announcing plans for upcoming albums. Despite the unique times we are living in, 2020 has been amazing for our beloved genre.

Rome Flynn has been wowing fans weekly with Viola Davis on ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder. With the show’s series finale soon approaching, Rome is refocusing his attention on his music. His new single is an acronym for “Keep Me In Mind.” On the smooth single, the singer lets his love interest know that he will still be there when the other guys leave. When that time comes, he just wants her to keep him in mind.
Samoht makes it known he is a “Sex God”
Vocal juggernaut Samoht is back with his catchy new single “Sex God.” Released without warning, the banger is the first taste of new music since his 2019 EXIT album. Sonically, the gritty, club banger is a welcome change of pace for the singer.

This one is definitely a great start to his next era.
