The Weekly Tune-up: Modern soul

The Weekly Tune-up: Modern soul

Illustrated by Annel Ramones

Once known as a soul revival movement, neo-soul best represents the evolution of popular music, and is the genre of those who are anything but ordinary. The love child of R&B and soul has made a name for itself with its predominant female presence, deviation from electronic influence, and remarkably emotional lyrical content. This week’s playlist features tracks from a diverse set of artists, such as neo-soul veterans D’Angelo and Maxwell, and even famous songbirds such as Frank Ocean, Childish Gambino, and Amy Winehouse. This playlist’s powerful vocals, tastefully catchy instrumentals, and sultry atmosphere will help you look forward to the end of the week with a side of frisson.
