OT│The Official R&B Sleepers Thread
 

 
I got a couple hip-hop threads like this but no R&B so it's time to fill that void. Unlike those though I won't have this year based. Couple ground rules before we get into it though:
  • Explain WHY The Project Is Nice - I don't mean you have to give an in depth explanation just give some examples. Youtube videos will always suffice.
  • Post A Link - Unless it's a retail release pass us the link please.
I'll start with a recent one but already one of my favorites (shout out to MakeItHappen456 for puttin me on)...

He reminds me a lot of Robin Thicke. He's got a lot of soul in his lyrics and a great voice, one of the best I've heard in a while. He crafts songs beautifully, his production overall doesn't fail him at all. From top to bottom this whole project is mad nice. I don't have a favorite track yet (tie between his Pretty Wings Acoustic & Doncamatic) but I think the best is Spent:

Give this tape a spin. If you like the aforementioned artist you'll like Daley too.

Post what you got. I don't have that many unfortunately so I'll keep the few I do have in my pocket to keep the thread going...

She reminds me of Jhene, The Dream and The Weekend a bit, but a more pop feel. I love how mellow the music is. I came across her on accident, decided to download her mixtape on datpiff just because it was featured/sponsored and I was surprised. Both of her mixtapes have 5 star ratings. Everyone's loving her sound. It's similar to those people I named but it's still unique.

Frank Ocean has had a lot of the R&B headlines recently, but After a stellar first album in 2011, Miguel is not to be forgotten so quickly.

Here's a few of his cuts from his 3 Part Art Dealer Chic Free EP Series released earlier this year:

I defintely co-sign this thread....a lot of R&B music goes unrecgonised these days.

I like the music posted up so...

Now i've come across this new up-coming R&B artist from London, UK. His name his Shwain.
First time i heard him was on a S.A.S track in which he did the hook for called...'Want It All'.

His EP is due to drop very soon...so if you like these video joint. Look out for him.

I've been looking for this singer that i seen a Youtube video of but his name was forgotten. He's black, has a wild afro and his style is sort of bummish looking. Props to anyone who knows who i'm talking about....

Got another Weeknd-esque artist this time around. His name is Julian, another member of the OVOXO camp & a Toronto import. Between he, The Weeknd & JMSN he's the "worst" but that doesn't make his music bad by any means. He has the least vocal range of the 3 and lyrically he's around The Weeknd's level (both below JMSN).

This tape was solid. Aside from "Dry Blunt" I liked it, though it didn't really leave a lasting impression on me like House of Balloons (Weeknd) or Priscilla (JMSN) did but it's worth a spin nonetheless...

I warned you about his voice, didn't say he could sing. His songs are carried by the instrumentals much like some of the Weeknd's songs. I didn't think it was that bad but different strokes...
