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…
It’s your boy Ace and it’s that time of the week again, where I put you onto the hottest new R&B, both homegrown and from across the pond. Let’s get into this week’s #SPOTLIGHT3!
Silk Sonic- Smokin Out The Window
‘An Evening With Silk Sonic’ is finally on the way! The streets have been asking for this project for a minute now. Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak have confirmed that thew Silk Sonic’s album drops on November 12. ‘Smokin Out The Window’ is the latest offering from the duo, accompanied by their retro, 70s themed visuals.
Summer Walker & Ari Lennox – Unloyal
As I’m sure you’ve seen all over your social media timelines, Summer Walker has finally released her 2nd album, ‘Still Over It.’ The 20-track project has had women in a complete frenzy since it dropped, and I can assure you, it has provided them with enough Instagram captions until New Year’s Eve (at least!).
Summer teamed up with the amazing Ari Lennox on my personal favorite track, ‘Unloyal.’ Both ladies killed it with the vocals. Who knew shading an ex could sound so good?
Ann Marie – Yo Body
‘Yo Body’ is the latest single from Chicago’s very own, Ann Marie. I’ve had her track, ‘Favorite Love Song’ in rotation for a while on 1Xtra’s R&B Show, and I’m sure I’ll be spinning this new track too.
‘Yo Body’ boasts a very sexy and sultry vibe, and Ann Marie continues this in her video, showing her flexibility and acrobatic skills.
As always, if you want to hear more dope R&B from all 4 corners of the world, make sure you tune in to 1Xtra’s R&B Show every Sunday night from 10pm. I’ve passed the baton to Ray BLK, who will be handling my show for the month of November.
