rolling r&b 2019

i still remember hearing "you know i'm no good" for the first time on the radio in 2007, then "need u bad" in 2008, and in both cases momentarily thinking 'lauryn?' before feeling slightly peeved that some label a&r's were probably hoping for precisely that reaction from me. went on to love both songs.

dutch singer nicole bus seems to be getting a strong early push at radio with this single despite having zero profile in this country. she was a contestant on the voice holland? the strain/'rasp' is a bit heavy for me and it all just feels very inevitable/history-repeating. if it takes off i'm sure we'll start seeing the mags write about how it actually all started with one lone club dj playing it at random and seeing a fat person cartwheel to it, then passing the intel to their radio friend.

The whole Asiahn album is good. Her lyrics are very direct, she's not messing around...

feels a little like an RnBass throwaway that would have gotten attention mainly on ILX via Lex & tumblr in 2011

many months old now, but just starting to get radio spins via iheartradio's payola emerging artist program

i like the laid-back arrangement and idk i guess anything that pushes back on society's imperative for two people in a relationship to go right back to being strangers once that ends will inevitably perk my ears up a little

The reason I posted the Kehlani audio rather than the video is b/c it’s one of those videos with a long intro before it gets to the music.

New EP from Summer Walker (Clear, recorded live): https://music.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mTe5_2E-5nzcUqADftVOX7XhWewaKjn5s

Her album was one of my favorites last year!

Bonus -- cool performance on Kimmel last week:

Searching the Web for info on Walker — there’s really not a lot out there — I found this from a transcript of a recent Beats 1 interview (apparently her first ever):

I literally just want to make soap, that’s my goal. From herbs and roots. That’s what I always wanted to do but I feel like it takes time because I want to grow the stuff in the garden and that would require me to have a home so I need the finances to get a home to make my garden to make my soap. That’s all I want to do. I gotta get a new car. I want a Mazda because see, the goal here is the garden and the home and going to get a Benz right now would not be very intelligent.
