One of my favorite sections within the Pandora app is "For You" because of the New Music recommendations. Sharing new music that was picked for me. Also, sharing a bit about the artists like @MOHLovesAlaska does. I always like to know more about the artists - especially artists that I'm discovering for the first time.

Sharing this week's new music based on my listening 🎧

Screen Shot 2021-05-23 at 1.24.20 PM.png

Album: Be Right Back by Jorja Smith

More about Jorja Smith: Jorja Smith is an English singer and songwriter whose heartfelt and streetwise R&B has invoked comparisons to the likes of AlunaGeorge , Rihanna , and Amy Winehouse , the latter of whom the Walsall-based artist cites as her biggest influence. 

Screen Shot 2021-05-23 at 1.26.44 PM.png

Album: The Off-Season by J. Cole

More about J. Cole: Born in Frankfurt, Germany and raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Jermaine Cole got into hip-hop through his stepfather’s copy of 2Pacalypse Now, which led to a deep fascination with 2Pac and immersion in the work of Nas, the Notorious B.I.G. , Jay-Z and Canibus, among many other artists. Cole’s high school grades earned him an academic scholarship to attend St. John’s University in New York City, where the fledgling MC and beatmaker knew he could make progress as a musician. Five chart-topping albums as a solo artist, nine Top 40 pop singles as a headliner, and a dozen Grammy nominations make a strong case for J. Cole as the most commercially successful rap artist of the 2010s. 

Screen Shot 2021-05-23 at 1.32.11 PM.png

Song: Motorbike by Leon Bridges

More about Leon Bridges: Leon Bridges’ first strides as an R&B artist prompted comparisons to legends like Sam Cooke and Otis Redding , but the native Texan quickly came into his own with the remarkably refined Coming Home (2015) and Good Thing (2018), Top Ten albums that resulted in four Grammy nominations and a win in the category of Best Traditional R&B Performance (for β€œBet Ain’t Worth the Hand,” off the latter).

Song: New Normal by Khalid

More about Khalid: Just out of high school when he made his commercial debut with the ballad β€œLocation” (2016), non-traditional R&B singer and songwriter Khalid has attracted a large following with an undemonstrative but heartfelt vocal style and a down-to-earth perspective. Although he attained a major-label contract within months of uploading his first songs, β€œLocation” moved into the mainstream at a slow tempo similar to that of the song itself and became a Top 20 pop hit just after the release of American Teen (2017), one of the biggest album debuts of the late 2010s.

_500W_500H-1.jpg

Song: Skate by Silk Sonic

More about Silk Sonic: In early 2021, Bruno Mars debuted a new collaborative project with Anderson .Paak called Silk Sonic. After releasing their first single,β€œLeave the Door Open,” in March, the duo made their television debut with a performance at the Grammy Awards.

_500W_500H-2.jpg

Self Titled Album: Vince Staples 

More about Vince Staples: Turning inward on his most introspective outing to date, rapper Vince Staples delivers another potent burst of lyrical storytelling on his self-titled fourth effort. Like 2018β€²s quick shot FM!, Vince Staples only needs 22 minutes to get the job done, packing a short autobiography’s worth of tales into ten tracks that revisit his younger, lawless days in North Long Beach. Produced entirely by Kenny Beats , this trip down memory lane is deceptively catchy, revealing layer after layer as the beats hit deeper and simple melodies combine to create a laid-back vibe that entrances like a sunset over languid waves.

 

_1080W_1080H.jpg

Song: You Are My High by DJ Snake

More about DJ Snake:Grammy-nominated producer, DJ Snake is a Frenchman at the forefront of the electronic trap music movement.

Within only a few years, however, Tesfaye had scored a variety of Top Ten pop hits.

_500W_500H.jpg
