Here at That Grape Juice, we love all things R&B! So, fittingly, we’ve teamed up with DJ Ace – one of the UK’s most revered R&B connoisseurs and host of BBC 1Xtra‘s weekly series Everything RNB (which airs Sundays at 10pm).
Each week he’ll be rounding up his latest show and previewing what’s upcoming on the next episode. Right here on That Grape Juice.
Without further ado, check out the latest installment with DJ Ace below…
It’s been an eventful few weeks in the world of R&B, with new music dropping left and right. Your boy Ace is back to let you know what tracks you should be checking out with my #SPOTLIGHT3.
Ray BLK – M.I.A (ft. Kaash Paige)
This track has been my ‘Ace In The Pack’ all week on BBC Radio 1Xtra. It features a dope new artist from the U.S by the name of Kaash Paige. Ray BLK has announced her debut album entitled ‘Access Denied’, which drops in September.
Amaal – Honey
‘Honey’ is the latest single from Somali-Canadian artist, Amaal. I had the pleasure of chopping it up with her this week and I’ll be pressing play on the full interview this Sunday, on The 1Xtra R&B show at 10pm.
Mahalia – Whenever You’re Ready
‘Whenever you’re ready’ samples the late 90s track, ‘Get It On Tonite’ by Montell Jordan. Mahalia co-wrote this song with her friend and fellow U.K artist MNEK. Hopefully, the release of new music means a new project is coming soon.
Make sure you lock into BBC Radio 1Xtra on Sunday night for The 1Xtra R&B Show with yours truly. I’ll be joined by Amaal, Tone Stith and Mic Lowry will be handling the #RNB1Take.
