August marks ending of the year’s hottest season, as well as the fizzling of heated summer flings, befitting of the plethora of R&B music released this summer. The resurgence of authentic R&B is apparent with crème de la crème offerings straight out of the emerging R&B scene, including cuts from Tone Stith, 6lack, Ella Mai, and Ye Ali, among others.
