With everything currently happening on the outside world, some soothing R&B music is much needed. This article is specific to the month of April. Whether you were looking back at the month to see which songs dropped or are comparing which month had the best R&B releases, this article has you covered.
In April, listeners were provided with just the remedy, including new music from Thundercat, dvsn and a surprisingly melodic single from 21 Savage.
The following list is part of DX’s monthly “Best of The Year” series. Check out some of DX’s other lists to stay up-to-date with all of the new music dropping this year.
Check out the Top R&B Songs of April 2020
“Secret” – 21 Savage f. Summer Walker
“Sky Mind” – Radiant Child
The London-based members of Radiant Children started off as session musicians but have evolved into a full-on band. On their latest single, naked guitar riffs lead into an uptempo, driving-with-the-top-down summer vibe with vocalist Fabienne Holloway confidently singing, “Sky mind/Watching the clouds come and go,” painting a vivid picture of a perfect day in the listener’s mind.
“Flawless Do It Well Pt. 3” – DVSN f. Summer Walker
“Rapper Weed” – SiR f. Boogie
The opening lyrics of SiR’s “Rapper Weed” injects visions of “clear skies” into the listeners head but the sweltering vibe of the Cali-bred track adds a sprinkle of palm trees, endless sun and a warm wind to match. Naturally, quarantine life has prevented that from being a reality but this smooth number on blast mixed with a cracked window, light breeze and even more lit blunt will make for proper compensation for the time being.
Here is HipHopDX’s The Best R&B Songs of 2020 … so far, which is updated monthly.
