Throughout the year 2013, R&B music lovers have been blessed with great R&B albums. We’ve had releases from artists like Justin Timberlake ( “The 20/20 Experience, “The 20/20 Experience -2 of 2), Fantasia ( “Side Effects of You ), Chrisette Michele ( “Better”), Robin Thicke ( “Blurred Lines” ), K.Michelle (“Rebellious Soul” ) and John Legend ( “Love in the Future) among others.
However, with less than three months until the year 2013 ends, we can’t help but wonder why these six R&B artists haven’t released their much-anticipated R&B albums.
It’s been two years since Jazmine Sullivan called it quits to the music business after her sophomore album under-performed.
It wasn’t like Sullivan doesn’t have the vocal chops to slay your fave under the table but she expected “Love Me Back” to be received like her debut offering “Fearless.” Still, many fans believe she shouldn’t have bowed out so easily because her sales and singles didn’t reach her previous success.
Nonetheless, fans all across the world still hope for new material from the modern-day Lauryn Hill. In fact, it may be coming sooner than we think as she teased fans with new music this summer on Instagram.
It hasn’t been etched in stone when the song will be released (or if it will). Nonetheless, critics, peers and fans can only cross their fingers until she decides to premiere her new sound and new outlook to the music industry.
