FKA Twigs. This girl is dope! reminds me of Aaliyah. Shes from London but shes starting make a name for herself in the US. And she makes her own beats, dont tell me thats not hiphop....

    FKA twigs is dope. R&B is at a high point right now. A lot of dope underground experimental R&B out there with the likes of twigs, Sampha, Kelela, Jhene Aiko, The Weeknd, Solange, and SZA.

    Check out Kelela for sure. Real hard hitting deep bass music with throwback 90s R&B vocals. The Weeknd too, of course.

    You might also like Tinashe. 2On is a nice club hit, but her album and mixtape work as way more experimental and atmospheric.

    Most of these artists pay a huge debt to Sade and Aaliyah.

    A few tracks I like:
