Journalist Bae | RED LIGHT PLAYLIST (Part 2)

Today is New Music Monday, the day is almost over, so here we have the second edition of the Red Light Playlist inspired by Moore Music Radio’s “Midnight Meltdown”. Now, while this R&B playlist is carefully curated, it’s presented in no particular ranking or order, just catch the vibes and let me know which song stood out to you. Hopefully you can find a few that are brand new to you! Check out part 1 here. Also, can we give an honorable mention to Transparency by 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, and Usher…

10. Warm December – Sabrina Claudio

Kicking off the vibes, we have a very sultry holiday ballad from the Miami-native. I could personally listen to this song all year the way her voice just runs like water. I’ll let you be the judge, but don’t sleep on the Florida baddie.

9. Truth or Dare – Tyla

Speaking of water… Next we have South African breakout star, Tyla with this lively ultimatum – “Truth or dare, is it true you care?.” Well, do you? It’s just enough of a crossover to be a beautiful R&B song.

8. Get Close – Ari Lennox

This is still fairly new and hasn’t quite jumped out as a favorite, it’s giving filler music. Elevator music for the bedroom. Really chosen for the sake of variety and the feeling of the sound. Lyrics aren’t deemed relevant in this case.

7. Nothing Even Matters – SIR

Not brand new, but a great addition nevertheless. Who could imagine such a voice from such a man!? The entire song, from production to visuals, fantastic!

6. Simple – Coco Jones, Babyface

As the song suggests, a very simple song from the duo. Though it’s minimal, it can be labeled effective.

5. Calm & Patient – Jhene Aiko

A social media fave right now, are the smooth sounds of Cali-born, Jhene Aiko. You can’t help but feel both patient and calm. A real feel good vibe just showers overs.

4. Finding Peace – Summer Walker

If you’re having a real self-care/aware moment, this sound would be essential. Maybe I’m bias because I’m a Summer fan… You decide…

3. The Divine Feminine – Savannah Cristina

This song has a fairly different feel than the rest on this playlist, however it does what needs to be done. I am bias this time to the soft life, but again, let me know what you think…

2. Sensational – Chris Brown, Davido, Lojay

A MASTERPIECE! SENSATIONAL, if you will! I am not disappointed in this song in any shape or form. This can be played at anytime. 10/10!!

1. Bosses In Love – Kehlani, Ty Dolla Sign

It’s got volume! It’s got body! There is no way to possibly make this song better. “You know what’s going on…” they belt out. If no other song, you have to add this one.

What is your Name? Where are you from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?

Leo w3ST, I’m from the west side of Chicago and what got me interested is just simply the love of music and the joy of performing.

Who and/or what inspires you to create?

These days I’m inspired by my kids and life situations when it comes to creating.

How would you describe your sound?

I would describe my sound as authentic, unique and original.


What is your creative process like?

It varies but for the most part some Mary J. is definitely in rotation. I might play some classic songs or songs from my favorite artist to get me going.

What is one message you would give to your supporters?

I appreciate y’all for supporting everything I do and sticking with me through this journey.


What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?

I’m real good at taking apart electronics and figuring them out, fixing them and putting them back together.

What would you be doing right now if you weren’t doing music?

It’s crazy cause I been doing it so long I never thought about it (laughs), but I would say maybe still in entertainment but not trying to be the focus like an A&R or something.

Who are some artists/people you admire and why?

J Cole is one. He showed me it doesn’t matter what you wear, people are still going to rock with you as long as you are a solid person. My big brother is another. He taught me a lot and is still giving me game today.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

Be yourself and give 100 percent to something if you really love it.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

I would make it more accessible for artist to find booking agents and have an unknown artist stage at festivals for the local artist in that city.

What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?

What’s next is me continuing to grow as an artist and a person. I would like to see myself in a bigger light with more opportunities like modeling , acting, voice overs, etc.
