SXSW 2014: R&B Preview
R&B artists may be outnumbered by all the indie rock, alt country, blues, rap, Latin alternative and electronic sounds one can absorb during the SXSW conference. But they tend to have an outsized impact. Some of the most buzzed-about performers are R&B favorites, including ratchet R&B prince Ty Dolla $ign and electro-R&B princess Kelela. This playlist previews a few names that'll appear in Austin this week, from big headliners like Kelis and Aloe Blacc to promising newcomers like Young & Sick, Iman Omari and FKA Twigs.
