R&B Now

R&B Now

R&B is one of the most dynamic, adventurous sounds in modern music, a place where art, both personal and provocative, meets the mainstream. From the alt vanguard to modern vets, straightforward to leftfield, these tracks capture where R&B is now and point the way to where it’s going. At the top of this week’s playlist is Tink and Summer Walker’s moody duet “Songs About U,” off Tink’s latest album Winter’s Diary 5. The acoustic track finds the duo having a hard time letting go of a past toxic relationship. Instead of moving on, they want to rekindle it. “You know how I get with that liquor in my system/All I got is memories, I hate that you went missing/You know when I’m faded I start texting pages/I can’t stay away,” Tink lilts on the first verse. Listen to “Songs About U” on R&B Now and add the playlist to your library to stay up on the latest and greatest of the genre.
