Here at That Grape Juice, we love all things R&B! So, fittingly, we’ve teamed up with DJ Ace – one of the UK’s most revered R&B connoisseurs and host of BBC 1Xtra‘s weekly series Everything RNB (which airs Sundays at 10pm).
Each week he’ll be rounding up his latest show and previewing what’s upcoming on the next episode. Right here on That Grape Juice.
Without further ado, check out the latest installment with DJ Ace below…
Your boy Ace is back with another very special #SPOTLIGHT3 for you. Don’t forget you can hear more dope tracks like these every Sunday night on The 1Xtra R&B Show.
Victoria Monét – Coastin’
Victoria Monét is back to bless us with her second single of the year, ‘Coastin’. During an interview, she explained, “If sunshine and a good time (and maybe a lil’ drank) were a song, it would be “Coastin’”.
Rotimi – What To Do
Most know him as Dre from the Starz series ‘Power,’ but away from acting, Rotimi has been making a name for himself in the R&B world, having previously collaborated with Wale, 50 Cent, and Kranium. ‘What To Do’ is produced by Hitmaka, and the video features one or two familiar faces.
Emmavie – What’s A Diamond To A Baby
My third pick is a whole project… not just a single. You’re probably now familiar with Emmavie; she has appeared in my #SPOTLIGHT3 a few times, and I’ve been supporting her music on the 1Xtra R&B Show.
‘What’s A Diamond To A Baby’ is a compilation of tracks you just can’t skip. It was impossible for me to pick my favorite! I’m looking forward to hearing this EP live.
I’ll be back with another #SPOTLIGHT3 next week, but make sure you catch me on BBC Radio 1Xtra on Sunday night from 10pm, where I’ll be chatting to James Vickery and Bobby V.
Birmingham’s very own Indigo Marshall will be taking on this week’s #RNB1TAKE.
