From H.E.R.'s new collaboration with Chris Brown, the resurgence of Shelley formerly known as DRAM, and new heat from rising rap powerhouses, there's something for every kind of mood. Check our top 7 picks for May.
1 Rikki - Heartbreaker
Murder Inc. is making a comeback with rising star, Rikki. We're eager to hear more from the piano-playing songbird.
2 H.E.R. feat. Chris Brown - Come Through
H.E.R. can do no wrong and this fiery track is perfect for sneaky links.
3 Shelley FKA DRAM feat. Summer Walker - All Pride Aside
This entire album can easily be a Best R&B Album contender. Also, he gave us two versions of this song when he dropped the visual. Shelley may be singing about being "addicted to love," but we are addicted to this.
4 Internet Money, Don Toliver, Lil Uzi Vert & Gunna - His & Hers
Who doesn't love a melodic trap song? This collaboration was refreshing and is perfect for a drive around your city.
5 Justin Nozuka & Mahalia - No One But You
Back in days of Degrassi, you might remember Justin Nozuka's (underrated) classic, "After Tonight." Well, the Canadian gem is back and he's joined forces with one of R&B's finest.
6 Ruth B - Situation
With a single this fluid and real, we know Ruth B.'s forthcoming album will not disappoint. Need some clarity on your own entanglement, this is the ballad for you.
7 DRYX - never get tired
One thing we never get tired of connecting a song to a moment or person. This soulful track from newcomer, Dryx reminds of the feels we got from Aaliyah and '90s Usher.
