Nostalgia, Ultra: 5 New Artists Bringing Retro Soul to R&B


Vibe / March 22, 2012

From R.Kelly and Raphael Saadiq to Amy Winehouse and Adele, music has seen a notable retro movement in R&B the past few years. And it’s no wonder why–there’s a certain heart that can be attributed to soul music of the past. With VIBE recently premiering Austin Brown’s retro-tinged “City of Angels,” we figured we’d put you on to a few more artists riding the same wave. Come along and ride on our fantastic voyage. We’re taking you back in time, 21st century style. —Stephanie Long
