January has been a pretty active month when it came to music. This month we received new projects from Future, Ariana Grande, and Summer Walker and received a good amount of singles as well from other artists. We also got a lot of buzz from J. Cole and his camp Dreamville. So with no further delay, here’s my last HOT TRACKS list for the month of January.
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?
