We had initially predicted that 2017 would be a slow month for r&b releases, especially with 90’s artists being more focused on touring or even retiring.

That’s changed over the past couple of months however, as we’ve got a flurry of new releases coming. Last month, we got new albums from Trey Songz, Kevin Ross, Leela James and La’Porsha Renae.

Check out what r&b has in store for March 2017 below.

Mack Wilds – After Hours – April 7th, 2017
