We know that most music lovers will be ending their weekend by tuning into the 65th annual Grammy Awards. On Saturday (February 4), the venue’s seating plan was teased on social media. Countless celebrities have also been partying throughout Hollywood as they gear up for the big night. You may not be attending, but you’ll definitely need some music to help you get ready to watch at home – that’s where our R&B Season playlist comes in handy.

The standout from the latest round of selections is Ella Mai’s Heart On My Sleeve (Deluxe) album. It previously debuted across streamers on Thursday (February 2), complete with new titles “2 O’Clock” and “Our Song.” Both tracks earned a spot on our Spotify selection of favourites, not to mention the impact they’ve had on fans so far.

The R&B starlet’s original sophomore release came in May 2022. Collaborators she connected with include Latto, Roddy Ricch, and Lucky Daye. She additionally recruited a strong roster of producers, such as Mustard and Boi-1da.

Next on our list comes a new single from Tink, called “Toxic.” As the title infers, the emotional track tells the story of a past love gone wrong, seemingly leaving our vocalist with some serious feelings of regret. It marks her first release since last year’s Pillow Talk project and sees her talent obviously shining through.

“Tryna play on my energy, all these hoes envy me / Can’t show you what you meant to me, f*ck shit don’t get to me,” her voice rings out over the R&B track. “I’m a real bitch, not industry, still waiting on a bitch to finish me / I was f*cking on the enemy, I should’ve known.”

Finally, we have a remix from PinkPantheress for your consideration. On “Boy’s a liar Pt. 2,” she nabbed Bronx-based drill artist Ice Spice to join her. In the accompanying visual, the girls explore New York City together along with their baddie friends.
