When one of the best selling male R&B groups of all time releases new music, fans are bound to tune in. That’s exactly what happened with Boyz II Men as their new song “Diamond Eyes” secures the top spot on Singersroom's Top 10 Streaming R&B Songs of The Week (week ending June 7th). Lifted from their upcoming album, Collide, the emotional ballad brandishes the group’s classic harmonies and soulful tones. It’s pretty simple to see why fans are hitting play on this one!
Another veteran is back with new music in the form of “Spend The Night.” R&B crooner Dave Hollister is enhancing the lives of lovers with this new one as he takes this week’s runner up position. The cut will appear on Hollister’s upcoming album, due this fall.
Jagged Edge is back with a sound they are well known for and fans are welcoming them with open arms. Their new single “Hope,” an optimistic record for women on the brink of giving up on relationships, maintains the third position this week. Whether it's the group coming back and/or the soulful vibe of the R&B ballad, it seems fans are happy with the homecoming.
