We’re back with a new episode of the podcast. We continue our discussion on The Encore show as the Cherish/702 conflict as really sparked up opinions on Twitter. We also talk about new music from Justine Syke, H.E.R. and Snoh Aalegra. Lastly we look at albums in 2021 and debate whether they should be considered playlists because of the amount of songs on these projects as well as the random features. Lastly we give a history lesson on T-Pain and his usage on R&B. We look at how he impacted the genre long term and what that meant for R&B.
