Brooklyn Native Adrian Daniel Releases Debut Album ‘Flawd’

Emerging singer Adrian Daniel has released his first full-length album, Flawd, via 1990 Records. Over a course of 14 tracks, Daniel takes listeners on an emotional journey through his vulnerable mind.

“Making Flawd was a healing experience for me,” the Brooklyn native Rated R&B. “It allowed me to shed things and people that didn’t value me and it also allowed me to take a look at myself and accept the things that aren’t perfect. It helped me see my worth and see that I’m human just like everyone else; I bleed and hurt the same way you do. So this record is about loving people in spite of their flaws and not being afraid to talk about them.”

While the title of Daniel’s album may be Flawd, the music is actually flawless. The R&B newbie created a body of work that is sonically cohesive and leaves listeners wanting more.

Fans can catch Daniel on his Flawd Tourwhich kicks off on March 7 in Philadelphia.

Listen to Justin Love’s New EP ‘When Love Returns’

Rising singer Justin Love has released his new EP When Love Returns.

The nine-track offering, which features no guest appearances, is packed with radio-friendly melodies and laid back vibes. The project includes previously released tracks “Models” and “Bed Springs,” which has an accompanying visual. He even gives us a taste of his iSingHipHop, an alter ego he cites as his “bread and butter.”

In April, Love shared with Rated R&B the stories he wanted to tell on his new EP. “When Love Returns is literally the return of love,” he said. “I haven’t dropped material in a good two or three years because of a situation I was in. I was legally tied to working with other people I didn’t want to work with. I couldn’t blatantly say that to my fans, though. I could only hint that towards them at least at that time.”

He added, “Now, I can say whatever I want. I was just legally bound to people. When Love Returns is just the return of me showing the world that I’ve been working and I’m here to stay. I’m going to give a bunch of different vibes. They’re going to get a little iSingHipHop, which is my hip hop-singing shit.”

Love is currently working on his debut album, which will be released independently. He plans to support the album with a tour.
