EDITORS’ NOTES

Drifting fluidly between rapping and singing, Londoner Not3s’ relaxed vocals slide across his songs like syrup. On an album drawing from hip-hop, Afrobeats, grime, and R&B, he even stays smooth and focused over the cobbled electro beats of the Tinie Tempah/Shakka collaboration “No Drama.” His breakthrough track, “Addison Lee (Peng Ting Called Maddison),” has already demonstrated that he can frame the most everyday subject—a taxi company—in irresistible warmth and vitality, and everything here, from the tender love song “My Lover” to the more braggadocious “Notice,” comes with an imperishable hook.
