Check out the Top R&B Songs of March 2020
“Time” – Childish Gambino f. Ariana Grande
Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino continues to channel past styles to craft his best music. After reaching back to the glory days of P-Funk for his Awaken, My Love! Album, Glover evokes the sounds of ‘80s on his Ariana Grande-assisted “Time.” In wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the track seems particularly prescient with its theme of days passing by without grasping one’s true meaning and purpose.
“Fair Chance” – Thundercat f. Ty Dolla Sign & Lil B
Los Angeles bass impresario Thundercat poured his heart out for “Fair Chance” while remembering his late friend and collaborator Mac Miller. With a little help from Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B, the talented trifecta promise to keep “holding it down” for Miller over the song’s ethereal, downtempo beat.
“Snowchild” – The Weeknd
The Weeknd has become known for his moody anthems about complicated relationships and over-indulging in everything from women to drugs. “Snowchild” is a detour from Abel’s usual writing themes, finding the Canadian singer reflecting on how far he’s come in his journey. The song reveals The Weeknd’s more introspective side and provides listeners a look into his life.
“10k Hours “ – Jhené Aiko f. Nas
Jhené Aiko’s new album is filled with noteworthy songs, but “10k Hours” stands out with it’s smooth melody, heartfelt lyrics and of course a feature from Nasty Nas. The New York legend gets vulnerable about a lost relationship on the track providing the perfect accompaniment to Jhené’s verses.
“Believe It ” – PARTYNEXTDOOR f. Rihanna
Most of PARTYNEXTDOOR’s newest album PARTYMOBILE displays his signature moody sound, but the Rihanna-assisted track “Believe It” stands out as a much more up-tempo record. Party explores the possibilities of proposing to his girl and the potential of being turned down. While the Rihanna hook may leave fans wanting an actual verse from the Fenty Beauty owner, Party provides enough caption worthy lyrics and a catchy melody to keep the song interesting the whole way through.
“We Got Love” – Teyana Taylor
“Actions” – John Legend
“Between Us” – dvsn f. Snoh Aalegra
“Split Decision” – PARTYNEXTDOOR
“Rose Bowl” – Rexx Life Raj
“Infinite” – Che Ecru
