2017 had one hell of a year. Similar to hip-hop’s massive resurgence thanks to the new streaming world, R&B is on a similar trajectory and along with hip-hop, seems to be replacing cookie-cutter pop music on the charts. NY based artist nöel is a new eye to keep an eye on in this new R&B resurgence. His recently released ‘i try’ is a vulnerable effort that is perfectly inline with the well produced records coming out from the best in R&B. There’s a dozen records available on nöel‘s Soundcloud and it’s easy to hear the progression up to point. Definitely keep your ears open for more music from him.
