PJ Morton Chooses Fluidity While Justine Skye Chooses Violence In This New R&B Roundup
While we wait for PJ Morton's star-studded new album, Watch The Sun, the singer has released a highly anticipated single from the project: "Be Like Water," which features the dynamic duo of Stevie Wonder and Nas.
In less happy news, Justine Skye appears to be exposing her ex-boyfriend, Giveon, on her new single, "What a Lie." We're waiting for his rebuttal, which is supposed to arrive next week.
Elsewhere in R&B, Ye Ali and Arin Ray are all about childbirth, whereas Jade Novah opts for intimacy and love love on her new ballad, "Lost In You."
Coming off the heels of 4/20, ease into the weekend with our new favorite R&B tunes.
“‘Be Like Water’ was definitely a phrase I had heard before,” Morton expressed in a statement. “Bruce Lee made it famous of course, but it didn’t fully connect with me until we were all shut down and I had to pivot in my life like we all had to. After I finished writing it I could only hear Nas’ voice on it. For him to actually get on it blew my mind. Then when Stevie Wonder agreed to be on it and to learn that Nas had always wanted to work with Stevie, it was beyond my wildest dreams!”
The troubled crooner makes a comeback with an honest ballad about being too unstable to be the foundation of a relationship. The self-awareness pervades the looming tension, and if this is how he'll come on his next album, we're ready.
