So, Nicole Bus Has Been Dropping Fire Every Week On Her Soundcloud

Written by on November 12, 2021

Now this simply made me extraordinarily completely happy.

One among my favourite R&B albums of the previous few years was Nicole Bus‘s 2019 stateside debut album, Kairos. Quoting myself from our 2019 Favorite R&B Albums list:

The vast majority of the album was so entrenched within the 90s that there ought to have been a bundle bundle for it containing a Child Phat jumpsuit (and never these new, boof Eternally 21 variations) and tickets to a Shemar Moore-hosted episode of Soul Practice.

Nevertheless, she’s remained extraordinarily low-key ever since, to the purpose the place I’d all the time marvel what she’s been as much as. Properly, randomly, I made a decision to simply search her out on-line and what do I see? Nicole has been quietly releasing new music each Friday on her SoundCloud page!

Like Kairos, a number of the drops retains that classic “hip hop soul” sound that Mary J Blige and so many different artists perfected within the 90s. “If I Solely Knew” samples Nas’ “One Love,” whereas “Younger” reimagines Slick Rick’s Hey Younger World” (whereas utilizing the drums from Slum Village’s “Fall In Love”), and tracks like “Story Of My Life” and “Bow Ties & Boques” have that boom-bap sound that I like.

Peep each drop from her to date, beneath.
