On this SoulBack R&B podcast, we talk about some of the latest releases from Avant. H.E.R, Snoh Aalegra and Summer Walker. We also dive deep into JoJo’s new acoustic album and try to figure out why more R&B artists don’t do something like this. We also talk about Jagged Edge’s upcoming double album and if it would be smart to make one side traditional R&B and the other side trap R&B. We also discuss Johnta Austin’s recent tweet about songs that are vibes versus hits. Lastly we talk about Pretty Ricky and debate whether they should be considered Hip Hop or R&B. And of course we have to talk about August Alsina this week.
