NEW RELEASES: Keyshia Cole, Boyz II Men, Eric Roberson, Snoh Aalegra, and H.E.R. (Stream)

Keyshia Cole releases her highly-anticipated seventh studio album, 11:11 Reset, the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Point of No Return.’ The set is headed by the singles “You,” featuring Remy Ma and French Montana, “Incapable,” “Best Friend” and the recently released love ballad, “Vault.”

’11:11 Reset’ also boasts appearances from DJ Khaled, Too $hort, Young Thug, and Kamaiyah on the Tupac-sampled “Ride.” During an interview with Rap-Up earlier this year, Cole explained the title’s significance. “For the past year, I’ve been seeing 11:11 constantly and to my understanding, you’re aligned spiritually with your destiny and everything that is meant to be in your life is happening at the right time,” she said. “The timing is right. Everything is right. Reset is definitely cohesive with that.”

Celebrating over 25 years in show business, four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning R&B vocal group Boyz II Men return with their latest album, ‘Under the Streetlight.’ The project is a tribute to the classic, harmony-driven sound that inspired the iconic R&B trio, featuring personal selections of timeless songs chosen by founding member Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman, and Wanya Morris, plus one original song.

“Growing up and experiencing doo-wop music, definitely influenced Boyz II Men’s sound,” said Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men. “Under the Streetlight has been a passion project that we’ve wanted to create for a while to bring us back to our roots and make the music that inspired us when we first started the group.”

On Under the Streetlight, Boyz II Men put their spin on classics such as “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” (Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers), “Stay” (Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs) and “I Only Have Eyes for You” (The Flamingos) along with an original composition, “Ladies Man.”

Special appearances include Brian McKnight, Amber Riley and Take Six. Stream below!

Eric Roberson releases the final EP, Fire, in his three project trilogy, ‘Earth + Wind + Fire.’ ‘Fire’ includes a roster of passionate and socially-infused songs while continuing to showcase Roberson’s storytelling skills and vocal prowess.

“‘Fire’ is my ‘What’s Going On’ album,” Roberson stated. “I’m attacking police brutality and the crazy political system we’re in.”

“I sat and started writing songs, and the songs didn’t sound like they belonged with each other,” he says and why he created the trilogy. “I would have a love song, and then I would have a song about Donald Trump. I asked myself, ‘Where was I going?’ I had all of these things in my head. So why don’t I put this in this folder and that in that folder?”

L.A.-based singer/songwriter Snoh Aalegra unwraps her debut full-length album, ‘Feels.’ The project is preceded by the singles “Feels,” “Home,” and “Sometimes,” and features appearances from Login, Vic Mensa, Vince Staples, and more.

Aalegra says about the album, “I’m super excited to finally share FEELS with the world. I’ve worked with incredible producers, musicians, and artists. Vince Staples, Vic Mensa, Logic, and the amazing Swedish rapper Timbuktu. What I love about them all is their gift; they are all such incredible lyrical masterminds with unique flows. This, just like my previous project, still has a cinematic feel to it. It also explores more modern sonics. It’s old school meets contemporary Soul/R&B in my own way. Therefore, the album title FEELS was perfect for it. It’s an emotional rollercoaster with beautiful composition.”

Snoh heads out on her first North American tour this fall opening for Daniel Caesar.

H.E.R.’s ‘Vol. 2: The B Sides’ will be available for download onlytoday October 20. The digital deluxe bundle of H.E.R. Vol. 1 and H.E.R. Vol. 2, which will be available for streaming only on October 20, includes six bonus tracks, including “2” and the beautiful duet “Best Part” with Daniel Caesar.
