Perhaps one of the century’s most underrated R&B artists is Bilal, who was part of the famed Soulquarians collective during their heyday. Now an independent artist, Bilal turns 36 years old today (Aug. 11).
In this edition of Songs of the Week, Bilal taps Big K.R.I.T. for a soulful groove, King Los welcomes R. Kelly to praise the man above and Omarion teams up with Kid Ink and French Montana for another banger.
It’s time to honor the singers who topped the charts and crafted the soundtrack to many of your celebratory moments last year. The competition for R&B Artist of the Year in The Boombox Fan Choice Awards is steep as each artist made a strong impact in 2013 with their respective music and movements.
