why not start with last year's surprise breakout star? conveniently, she's just put out a video for her great new single. i sincerely look forward to hearing this on the radio after "playing games" has run its course.

do you see good fortunes for the idiom this year? anticipating any particular artists' albums? let's hear it!

Hi Dyl! Her breakout was no surprise to me :)

I like this track a lot (it’s eligible for voting in ILM’s 2019 tracks poll, ahem!) — but man, does LODT’s producer drop bug me... it’s especially grating over the course of the whole album. Sorry to start the year off on a negative! :D)

This track dropped back in December, but the video just premiered a few days ago... I like the atmosphere in this song:

now that i think about it, i wouldn't mind at all if usher worked his way up to releasing a new album

luke james has released a handful of tracks over the past few months and will be going on tour soon. this most recent track is probably my favorite of the bunch: a bit freeform, a characteristically great vocal + striking arrangement that drifts off into a gentle haze of atmospherics

Her older singles are also really good -- check out "Orange Sweater," it rules:

Good to see Luke James love! His 2014 album is one of my quiet faves.

This is end of '19, but I fucking love how sharp Usher and Ella Mai sound here

a lot of his songs on STAR were very good. “filthy sheets” was a personal fave

between city winery shifting its booking and this new venue big night live opening—i went to its press event, which was bundled in with an erykah badu show—boston is finally getting more r&b shows. elle varner is here next week, raphael saadiq with jamila woods next month, bilal a week after that. took everyone long enough!

Kaash Paige may be about to blow up... among other indicators, her track "Love Songs" is #3 on TikTok (which I understand is meaningful) #2019Impact

I love her vibe so much, I guess it's somewhat similar to Summer Walker's early material.. these gorgeous, spaced-out jams
