Justin Timberlake : Most of the R&B to wash up on these shores in recent years has been maudlin mewlings from hipster favourites such as the Weeknd. Suit and Tie takes us back to ’99 when R&B was all horn stabs, finger clicks and obligatory Jay-Z verses.
Destiny’s Child : Nuclear goes back even further, with mid-90s breakbeats, lush SWV-style harmonies and sultry-as-sin string lines. Think the girl who walks round the block from Unfinished Sympathy having a Radox bath.
What they said was spot on! Tired of all the blocky beats, been missing the fluidity. And now, two of my favourite artists are back! HELL TO THE F YEAAAAH!!!!
