With Summer rolling on and Fall swiftly approaching, cuffing season is about to take hold and it’s only fitting to have some R&B hits to comfort you and your boo during those cold cuddle-filled nights. These are 6 songs that will have you in your feels one way or another.
Self! – Isaia Huron
Known primarily for his talented drumming in a local band, Isaia Huron finally found the courage to express his love for singing. He released his first project Three in 2020 and has since continued to deliver more vocal performances. “Self!” sees Isaia reminiscing about a former lover and wanting to reconnect, the perfect match for cuffing season.
Pop Out – Blxst & Bino Rideaux
Blxst has had quite the 2021 with an appearance at Rolling Loud Festival, his very own headlined tour “NO LOVE LOST”, a collab album SIXTAPE2 with Bino Rideaux, and a XXL Freshman list nomination. His recognition continues to grow (as it should), with “Pop Out” being one of the catchiest songs of the year.
INDECISIVE – Snoh Aalegra
One of the most electrifying intros to an R&B album ever heard. The ethereal beat switches captivate the soul from the moment you press play. Snoh Aalegra, who just celebrated her birthday, continues to elevate her artistry and TEMPORARY HIGHS IN THE VIOLET SKIES is an amazing testament to her vocal talent.
Memories – dvsn & Ty Dolla $ign
Who knew that in a year where Anderson .paak and Bruno Mars joined forces as Silk Sonic it would actually be the duo of dvsn and Ty Dolla $ign delivering some of the best R&B group music. “Memories” samples Silk’s “Freak Me” and it absolutely brings up some nostalgic memories as dvsn and Ty do the song justice. The rest of the album solidifies the pairings’ talents together and is a must listen.
Paradise (Feat. Yung Bleu) – H.E.R.
Not much to say other than that this song is perfection. I could take another 10 songs from these two together on a joint album because they absolutely do not miss whenever they work together.
GYALIS – Capella Grey
One of the most underrated songs of the summer. A sleeper hit in some scenes, but an absolute banger in others. This one came out of left field, but Capella flips one of the most iconic ass shaking negro spirituals, “Back That Ass Up,” and turns it into an R&B player’s anthem. This song needs way more recognition.
