Big Sean, Ty Dolla $ign & Cordae’s Shine On This Week’s “Fire Emoji” Playlist

Juice WRLD & Trippie Redd’s collab with Internet Money, Lil Tecca’s “Royal Rumble,” and new heat from Conway also make their way onto this week’s “Fire Emoji” playlist.

We’re pretty much at the end of August. The end of the summer. And it’s been a strange summer with all things considered. However, even though artists haven’t been able to tour or reap the benefits of the festival circuit, there has still been plenty of music that’s dropped.

This week, our Fire Emoji playlist includes some of the major drops of this week including that first glimpse of Detroit 2Big Sean unleashed his new single, “Deep Reverence” with the late Nipsey Hussle this week as he prepares for the release of his forthcoming project. Meanwhile, Ty Dolla $ign unloaded a rare verse from Nicki Minaj for his latest single, “Expensive.” The pair have worked together in the past, most notably on Megan Thee Stallion‘s, “Hot Girl Summer” but “Expensive” finds the two delivering a club-friendly banger.

For those who are looking for some bars, Conway’s also getting ready for the release of his new project King To A God. The Griselda rapper unleashed his single “Fear Of God” ft. Dej Loaf — a necessary inclusion. We also got the latest from Cordae who just celebrated his 23rd birthday a few days a go. His single, “Gifted” ft. Roddy Ricch is also in steady rotation on our end.

Jhene Aiko & Summer Walker Top Spotify’s Most Streamed R&B Artists List For 2020

Spotify reveals its top streaming R&B artists, including Summer Walker, Jhené Aiko, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and more.

In addition to relaunching their widely popular Are & Be playlist, Spotify is revealing the most-streamed R&B artists and songs of the year on the platform, as well as debuting an exclusive single from emerging singer Giveon.

Noting that R&B was one of their top genres for the year, the music streaming service is launching new recordings and mixed-media content dedicated to the popular genre. The streamer also shared special new singles by Giveon, titled “Like I Want You,” a rework of his original song, and a cover of “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” by D’Angelo. The tracks are the first-ever Are & Be Spotify Singles.

The Giveon singles were mixed at Electric Lady Studios, the same place that D’Angelo had recorded “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” twenty years ago. “Really excited to share this version of ‘Like I Want You,’” said Giveon. “It’s a very personal piece, so stripping it down allows the vocal to be the star of the show. Also, covering an R&B Classic is the icing on the cake. Working on these two songs was a beautiful time for me.”

In terms of the most streamed R&B singers thus far this year, Jhené Aiko tops the list as the current first lady of the genre. The songbird released her album Chilombo this year and it became her highest-charting album. Kehlani, PARTYNEXTDOOR, H.E.R., and Summer Walker make up the rest of the top 5.

YBN Nahmir Announces New Album Title & Release Date

YBN Nahmir is gearing up to release a new project.

YBN Nahmir has his collective have been going through quite a bit as of late. It’s been well-documented that Cordae and YBN Almighty Jay have pretty well left the group, while Nahmir is continuing to use the YBN tag. These three met each other while playing Grand Theft Auto and while their friendship began with the game, it was quite clear that each artist had vastly different artistic directions. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why the group would decide to go their own way.

Regardless, YBN Nahmir is still here and he is gearing up his fans for a brand new album. Today, he took to Instagram where he released a little snippet while also revealing that he is dropping called Visionland on December 18th.

This is certainly going to be a big step in Nahmir’s career and it appears as though fans are already excited about this. However, it’s interesting to see an artist reveal their release date over three months before the album’s official drop. Typically, album release dates are brought with short notice but now, Nahmir is giving his fans something to look forward to in the future.

Stay tuned for updates on the project as we will be sure to bring them to you.

The Weeknd Calls For Justice For Jacob Blake With VMA Acceptance Speech

The Weeknd used his speech at the VMAs to call for justice for Breonna Taylor and Jacob Blake.

The Weeknd used his platform at the Video Music Awards, after winning Best R&B VMA for his After Hours single “Blinding Lights,” to advocate for justice for Breonna Taylor and Jacob Blake.

The singer spoke for just under 20 seconds, implying that the recent killings are weighing on his mental: “It’s really hard for me to celebrate right now and enjoy this moment, so I’m just gonna say justice for Jacob Blake and justice for Breonna Taylor,” he told the audience.

Breonna Taylor was shot and killed by Louisville Metro Police Department officers executing a no-knock search warrant at her apartment. Officers fatally shot Taylor who was in her bed during the unannounced break-in. The shooting sparked protests across the nation.

Blake was shot in the back by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin while attempting to enter his vehicle. Blake is reportedly paralyzed from the waist down after being shot at seven times. The shooting prompted NBA players to go on strike amidst the playoffs. They returned to play Saturday, having settled on several agreements with ownership, including that NBA stadiums be used as voting centers for the upcoming presidential election in November.

Check back later tonight to see other winners from the event.
