This year has been a really good year for R&B. We’ve had the pleasure of seeing artists take steps forward in helping bring the genre back to its roots. H.E.R., Daniel Caesar, Ella Mai, 6LACK, and Khalid allowed listeners to connect with their music by bringing transparency to their music. They focused in on the ups and downs of love and relationships along with the lessons they’ve learned dealing with it. As a result, there were more people listening to R&B and even more hit this year than in earlier years. So here are some of the R&B songs this year I loved and couldn’t get enough of this year. What songs were you feeling this year? Who would you want to hear more of next year?
It seems like cuffing season is in full effect as we are getting closer and closer to Fall. With the state of R&B in reflux, some may need help picking out some new R&B tracks for playlists or just to listen to. With this article, I hope to fill you in on the state of R&B and also help you pick out some good tracks for your own playlist.
