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.

SCAR LIP is from a place where they don’t do no rattin’. But anyone who has a ear for Hip-Hop can’t help but to speak about the femcee from the Bronx. Her emergence to the frontline of Hip-Hop is great to see. Scar has the ability to wield two swords: gritty delivery and ability to captivate the crowd.

This past summer belonged to Scar. At the BET Awards she took the stage alongside Busta Rhymes for a performance that got everyone caught up. The 22 year old artist has cosigns from some of the industry’s best including Jadakiss & Cardi B. Along with lyrical prowess, her energy is built from both personal tragedy and resiliency.

Sierra Lewis is a example of how someone can overcome obstacles in life. The scar on her lip is a reminder of how traumatic life can become. While others would be bothered by this, Scar is unbothered. She would use her platform to be an advocate for those who could relate. Songs like “Foster Care” & “Therapy” are therapeutic to her fans.

Her viral sensation hit “Glizzy Gobbler” that would take Scar to the next level overnight. The influences on Scar Lip’s style include both ONYX and DMX. In her smash hit “This Is New York” she would strongly embody those artists to demand fake ones to vacate the city!


Scar Lip

Scar Lip is making a statement with her new release titled “No Statements”. The track is a vibe with a visual that is equally dope. The video released on September 15th and currently has over 1 million views and counting! Check out the official music video for “No Statements” down below.
