Top 10 R&B vibe of the year.
Fact: This super-lush melodic house track will get stuck in your head.
To my R&B lovers, remember Vivian Green? Her song “Emotional Rollercoaster” from the early 2000s is a modern classic. This is her best single since then, featuring a sample of another classic. It’s too bad adult R&B doesn’t get the exposure and radio play it used to—this is a bona fide hit.
You might not know Jones outside of the U.K., but this feel-good upbeat song could and should help her ascend into worldwide stardom.
This is the kind of song I’ve been looking to hear from Daya since her Grammy-winning breakout performance on “Don’t Let Me Down.” She’s said that she wanted to continue to go in that indie/electronic pop direction (sorta like this gem), and after a couple singles that didn’t quite standout, she’s now delivered with her own epic single that fits her elite vocals.
The more I hear this, the more I enjoy it. We all know about Diplo’s mastery of EDM. But this is more of a “Trap&B” (aka “Chill Trap”) project featuring one of the best songwriters in the game today, Starrah. Super-catchy.
