Just a couple of weeks ago, Spotify launched R&B UK, its first official playlist dedicated to all things UK R&B. It’s testament to the FUEGO the UK R&B scene is continually dropping. Exciting to see the long-deserved recognition this is already bringing to emerging UK R&B acts.
Best New RnB Playlist July 2018
Per usual agenda, UK R&B’s greatness gets its shine on our latest On The Wave playlist update. Big up, Rukhsana Merrise, Mahalia, Lylo Gold, Cosha, RAYE, Rachel Foxx, Nao, IAMDDB, James Vickery and many more. Rachel and IAMDDB both released projects over the past month which y’all need to give a spin.
Our playlist opener is a somewhat surprising collab between Dej Loaf and Leon Bridges, Liberated, a smooth leg-shaker that deliciously brings Leon’s old Soul style with Dej’s trap tendencies for the perfect summer jam. We are absolutely living for the incredible richness of new age Soul right now – from electronic-infused, funk-tinged, vocal-led, hip-hop and trappy vibes, with many artists bringing several of these and everything in-between together. It’s truly a blessing to have so much good music to chose from.
With all that said, do absolutely enjoy this one!
