Northern Vibes

Drake, The Weeknd, dvsn, Jessie Reyez: Some of the freshest, most progressive artists in modern R&B have come from Canada. It’s not a unified sound—Drake’s rap&b is as different from Reyez’s casual grandeur as it is from The Weeknd’s dimly lit fantasies. But that mood—that sense of space and sleekness—makes the music feel like it has more in common than just a country code. Go deep into the Canadian R&B renaissance as it continues to evolve. And since our editors are constantly updating these selections, if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
