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.
