    The SoulBack R&B Podcast: Episode 83

    Lots to talk about this week on the R&B podcast. We start off reflecting on Case's BET episode where he talks about his career. He mentions how his single "Not Your Friend" was sabotaged by Def Jam so that radio would play another artist, so we try to figure out who that artist is. We also look into new music from the likes of Jhene Aiko, Kiana Lede and Missy Elliott. We also try to figure out what's going on with Usher's new single with Ella Mai as it appears to be stalling on Urban Ac already. Lastly we look back at albums from two of our favorite groups: Jodeci and Boyz II Men. We also debate whether a Jodeci tour is necessary in 2020.

Hidden gem

I listen to a lot of podcasts every week, but this one has to be one of my favourites. An absolute gem if you love R&B music. The guys are incredibly knowledgeable about the genre and are have crafted a great structure to the episodes. Kyle, Tom and Edd keep me entertained with their hilarious interactions which all makes for a fantastic listen. HIGHLY recommended.
