Editors' Notes London singer-songwriter Mnelia heads up UK R&B this week with “Shoot”, a soulful anthem that aims to turn the page on tired old love stories. “I’ve contextualised that when men cheat on women, we're viewed as victims,” she tells Apple Music. “I wanted to flip that narrative.” A feisty revenge track wrapped in soaring, fluttery melodies, “Shoot” is the highlight of the singer’s second EP, After 6. A multidimensional offering, the project builds on the slow-burning transitions connecting its four tracks. “I took inspiration on that from the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean,” she says. “I wanted to show that same attention to detail, and provide something that also would be remembered as fluid, cohesive and high-quality. I want to challenge myself to put R&B in a place it needs to be for us all.” Remember: This playlist is updated regularly, so when you hear something you’re into, add it to your library.
