It definitely seems Top Dawg Entertainment can do no wrong, being home to artists such as SZA, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar just to name a few, but today it is about SiR. An r&b singer, but not just any run of the mill singer, he keeps it soulful with a soft voice and beautiful harmonies. I’ve been aware of SiR’s presence for some time and the moment I heard his voice I knew he was one to watch out for and in my opinion “HER TOO” tops his last release, with the production on this EP complimenting his voice much more.
I’ve found in the recent years it has been difficult to find authentic r&b artists, yes there are many singers that claim to be apart of that genre but it is also the production behind them that counts. Mainstream r&b seems to consist of beats heavily influenced by trap. As much as I love hip-hop, singing over it doesn’t make it r&b. SiR avoids all of that and keeps it fresh, simple but beautiful and sensual with one of my favourite tracks called “SUGAR” from his new EP “HER TOO”. He had me singing the lyrics just after the second listen!
