R&B Fridays: Episode 104


The last 48 hours are a bit of a rapid blur, so to me it’s still Friday. Very solid new material this week, with some of the bigger names in the R&B, pop and even hip-hop world making appearances.

Only the three relevant posts to recap on, with the announcement of the Future Hits Live tour, solid new music from Drake, and a brand new EP from the talented Rocki Evans which is probably going to be worth a listen.

Click, read, download, enjoy.

R&B Fridays: Episode 84


No recap this week thanks to a temperamental hard drive, but R&B Fridays actually makes it out on a Friday for the second consecutive week, which is a pretty big victory.

Lots of remixes and rappers popping up this week, with some huge names coming through with some very unexpected pop and R&B remixes. More than enough original material too though, making this a very diverse episode that’ll satisfy the vast majority of you grubby little folk.

Click on and let me be the Snoop to your Cameron, though R&B/pop probably isn’t the same as marijuana…probably.

Jackie Boyz-585 Days Later Mixtape


R&B Fridays followers will be very familiar with this talented duo, and they come through here with a rare full-length offering.

For those of you that aren’t, you’re probably familiar with their work without knowing it: they’ve penned and/or helmed tracks for some huge names, including Chris Brown, Madonna, the Bieber and many, many more. Their solo work is generally of a good standard too, with a few superb highlights, and hence this mixtape will surely be a must-have for the pop/R&B heads.

Red Cafe/Ya Boy/Gorilla Zoe/Jackie Boyz - Wish You Would


Pretty good collabo that DJ Ill Will has cooked up here, admittedly I don’t really care for Ya Boy or Gorilla Zoe, but seeing Red Cafe & The Jackie Boyz on the same track certainly took my interest.

Nice and mellow track with each rapper talking about where they come from. The Jackie Boyz provide a simplistic chorus, whilst nothing special, does its job in sticking in your head for you to sing along to.

R&B Fridays: Episode 56


After the success of last week’s R&B Friday, I’ve once again picked up Ajay’s mantle this week and have for you another quality episode.

Here we have for you some big names in Ciara, Usher, JLS, Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, Omarion and we also have for you some newcomers. Up and coming regulars of this weekly feature like Jackie Boyz & Rock City also make an appearance, as you’d expect by now.

So click on for a load of tracks that will keep you entertained until your next scheduled fix!

Edit: I’ve since received the official album version of the new Usher track (with a different, new Pitbull verse) so come inside and grab the even higher quality one.

R&B Fridays: Episode 55


With Ajay currently incarcerated in some grotty South African prison, your weekly R&B fix has been left with me to try and fill. Now I may not have anywhere near the amount of knowledge with this genre, I can however appreciate a good R&B song.

I’ve sorted through over 50 R&B songs over the last week and have narrowed it down to the best 24 and for that reason you shouldn’t at all be dissuaded from clicking on. We have some real gems for you, from the big names, to many a newcomer. Click that red text to find out whether I’m true to my word, or whether I’ve completely ballsed this feature up….(now that’s pressure!)

Similar to last week’s episode, this one contains a nice blend of big names, up-and-comers and some that we (I) haven’t heard from in a while.

We’ve dropped some R&B-related goodies throughout the week too, be sure to scroll down a couple of posts and check out the video for Usher’s lead single from Raymond vs. Raymond. When you’ve done that, scroll back up and enter the R&B room.

R&B Fridays: Episode 2

lloyd-big
R&B Friday is two weeks old, and like a fine wine, continues to get better. Enjoy new tracks from big names such as Trey Songz and Lloyd (who I think are the two best artists in R&B right now), and tracks from lesser-known names such as Riz, who is also very talented, and has the potential to be with those names.
