Here’s a new group to keep your eye on, as Phony PPL may not quite put it all together on their debut Yesterday’s Tomorrow, but their music shows a ton of promise. This highlight single along with a number of their other tracks shows their exemplary ability at blending genres and between bands like this, The Internet, Hiatus Kaiyote, and many others it looks like we finally have a new generation of jazz fusion/R&B-influenced music to look forward to.
Also listen to: “Why iii Love the Moon”, “Baby Meet My Lover”

Just when you think everyone that could cover Drake’s “Hotline Bling” had already done everything possible with it, enter one immensely talented Erykah Badu. Not only does she tilt the song on its head and stretch it out into a silky smooth jam, it’s the only version that doesn’t sound like a cover. It’s different, it’s fun, and most of all, it’s more engaging than even the original– but what else would you expect from Erykah Badu?
Also listen to: “Didn’t Cha Know”, “Window Seat”, “On & On,” “Next Lifetime”, “Bag Lady”, “The Healer”
