Check out the Best New R&B Albums of June 2020
Ungodly Hour – Chloe x Halle
Atlanta duo Chloe and Halle Bailey may possess angelic voices, but they have no interest in being society’s picture of the squeaky clean childhood star facade. Nor do they aspire for a raunchy rebellious phase like many others coming from a Disney influenced adolescence. Instead, on Ungodly Hour, the sisters enter adulthood with poise and confidence as young women unafraid to reveal their experiences curving overzealous fuckboys and staying strong while dealing with their insecurities. And while their sharp wit and soaring dual harmonies highlight their prodigious talent, Chloe x Halle’s main appeal is how clearly they aren’t trying to be anything but themselves, coming into their own as songwriters wise beyond their years.
The Album – Teyana Taylor
After expressing displeasure with her Kanye West-produced seven-track Wyoming project, Teyana finally returns with her official debut album and this time it’s on her own terms. The 23-track album has features from Big Sean, Mrs. Lauren Hill, Missy Elliot and even an appearance from her husband Iman. It seems like Taylor has found her pocket as she continues to grow into one of R&B’s brightest stars.
