Hot R&B Singles: August 2014
In our latest installment of new R&B singles, Chris Brown continues to feed the streets with "New Flame." Still no word on a release date for X, but rumors persist it will drop sometime this fall. August Alsina continues to look for a proper follow-up hit for "I Luv This Sh*t" by recruiting Nicki Minaj for a remix of "No Love." Jhené Aiko preps for the September 9 release of Souled Out with two teasers, "The Pressure" and "To Love & Die." The Weeknd brings a non-album track in "Often." Usher's "She Came to Give It to You" is the second single from his tentatively titled upcoming album, Everything You Can Imagine, which doesn't have a release date yet. Jennifer Hudson's JHUD should drop this fall, but in the meantime there's "It's Your World." U.K. pop soul chanteuse Jessie Ware kicks off promotion for October 7's Tough Love with the title track. Tank previews next week's Stronger with "Dance With Me." In reality-show-related R&B, there's Tameka "Tiny" Harris' "What The F*k You Gon Do," Ray J's "ATM," Chante Moore's "I Know, Right" and Syleena Johnson's "My Love." Fresh offerings from the much-missed Elle Varner, songwriter/producer Maejor Ali, U.K. singer Estelle and others round out this list.
