My Musiq and Me – R&B

Hola beautiful people!

Another edition of some of my favourite music.

My last playlist was an ode to my go-to music genre — Neo-Soul. But before I got to know and fall in love with Neo-Soul, I was all about R&B. I am very much a 90s kid and who says 90s says R&B. This era was such a vibe! There were songs for every mood — songs for when you were happy or when you were sad, when you were madly in love or heartbroken, when you wanted something to just chill to or something to shake your tush to and have a good time, something everyone could groove to at family and social functions or something for intimate moments for you and le lover — there was something for all times. The music had so much soul and touched you in a very unique and personal way; it felt like magic. And don’t get me started on the quality of vocals. Simply phenomenal! And in this sea of outstanding R&B voices, Brandy and Toni Braxton remain my favourite voices. To this day I listen to every single track on the Never Say Never and Full Moon albums by Brandy and the Secrets and The Heat albums by Toni Braxton, religiously.

Though my love for R&B has never waned, I admit I am still very much biased towards the 90s and early 2000s R&B, but I try to listen to the somewhat new artists as well. Today I am sharing a few new-era (From the 2010s) R&B artists who have won me over with their music and persona and everything that surrounds their artistry. I really hope more artists like them will emerge with such amazing music.

Now let’s listen to some R&B…

So, this is a non exhaustive list of the new-ish R&B artists I listen to. Even though I may listen to a few others, these ones are pretty regular on my music playlist. Hope you enjoy these artists and if possible get to know their discography a bit more. I would love to read your comments on what you think of them and also who are your own favourite R&B artists in these times, as well as your favourite song(s) in their catalogue .
