cute song but her voice is so nondescript

This track does something cool toward the end:

the whole Erika de Casier album is really lovely, my favourite is "Space"
― ufo, Saturday, 27 July 2019 06:37 (one month ago) link
'What U Wanna Do?' -> 'Rainy' -> 'Space' is a great run.
Anyway, this album is ideal ILM fodder (and I mean that in a good way).

maybe make a thread for it? i really love it. it's drawing so heavily on 90s r&b but the production feels much more modern with how much space there is and every individual sound is so good

I considered making a thread for it too!

also, zo! put out a new album last week and it's lovely. (it's called fourfront, which is easier to search than his name.) i want to try and catch him at city winery on monday - he's doing a "piano & a microphone" tour with carmen rodgers, whose vocal makes this track extra bubbly

phonte (naturally), stokley, and madison mcferrin are among the other guests
Is this the thread where I can gush about the new Normani single with the rest of the Internet or should I take it to the pop thread

Do it here! I haven't listened to it yet.....

I feel like normani almost deserves a thread of her own at this point
― monotony, Friday, 16 August 2019 21:07 (four weeks ago) link
anyway it’s delightful. I’ve sort of thought she would be a star ever since her ad libs of “that’s my girl”, and it’s been pleasing to see her build this oeuvre of confident collaborations over the past year or so before now having this break out moment
― monotony, Friday, 16 August 2019 21:09 (four weeks ago) link
i came around on "dancing with a stranger" but honestly didn't really feel any other songs normani was involved in. this song is pretty good and i'll be glad if it finally enables her to properly step out as an artist -- the fact that she had to maneuver her way in thru very strategically selected collaborations honestly struck me as highly unfortunate. as 'confident' as was on those hits they were also ample evidence that her label was, like, the opposite of confident in her potential as a pop solo personality. major props to her if she really gets to go the distance and thank fuck she's proving herself now.
i have to say the excellent video kinda makes the song. i don't think i would find the track nearly as striking without it.

in theory I'm skeptical of the massive pr push behind normani but "waves" is one of my favorite R&B songs of the year and this is also pretty good

I like how unselfconsciously oldschool this is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4u8HFDULaq0

my fav track from elle varner's new album, which is indeed good tho not as great as the debut (but tbh what is?)
it took a while for me to give the album a shot b/c one of the pre-release singles w/ wale was so dull but fortunately that ended up being among the worst couple of tracks
― dyl, Saturday, 17 August 2019 19:56 (four weeks ago) link
gave lucky daye's album a spin... strikingly arranged but much of it just drifted from my memory as unassumingly as it came. (perhaps one should 'roll some mo' to appreciate the full impact?)
aside from the radio hit, this track stood out to me

I really like this (caveat: cover art is Not-quite-SFW):
Justine Skye - Bare With Me (EP)
― #YABASIC (morrisp), Friday, 6 September 2019 22:49 (one week ago) link
It remands me of those Amerie EPs that I loved last year.
