The HERSource: Saturday Soundtrack is finally here!
Every Saturday, we’re bringing you a weekly round up of the latest or newest music from rising and established female artists that may have flown under your radar. This week, we’re highlighting releases from Tweet, Eryn Allen Kane, SWV, Rihanna and Tiffany Evans. We’re also hitting rewind on a few of 2015’s hidden gems from Kreesha Turner, Tink and Teedra Moses. Check it out below!
Eryn Allen Kane – How Many Times
A rising young soul singer out of Detroit, Eryn Allen Kane yet again showcases her extraordinary talent on this powerful track. Written, produced and performed by the 26-year-old future starlet, “How Many Times” hears her deliver raw and gritty vocals with a timely message that’s much bigger than music. The song is featured on her latest project Aviary: Act II.
SWV – When Love Didn’t Hurt
In case you were wondering whether or not 90s R&B trio SWV has still got it, their new album Still should put any doubts to rest. Although the ladies take a slight detour from their signature sound on a few of the new album tracks, songs like “When Love Didn’t Hurt” remind us all why we fell in love with them in the first place.
Kreesha Turner feat TOK – Sexy Gal
Jamaican/Canadian bombshell Kreesha Turner is steadily climbing her way to the top of the music scene and it’s not hard to see why. As talented as she is beautiful, her Soundcloud is full of tracks that will have you dancing your way through the week and this TOK-assisted single “Sexy Gal” recently earned her a Canadian Grammy nomination.
Tweet – I Didn’t Know
It’s been 10 years since Tweet’s last full-length studio album, but you wouldn’t know it from listening to this track….or any of them on her new album Charlene. Her pure vocal talent shines on this track as her voice floats so effortlessly over the melody that you forget the lyrics are telling a story of heartbreak.
Rihanna featuring SZA – Consideration
Rihanna’s long-awaited new album ANTI has been burning up the charts since its’ late January release and this leading track featuring TDE first lady SZA is the perfect introduction to the album’s ecletic collection of expertly crafted production.
Tiffany Evans – Back To Sleep (Remix)
A powerhouse vocalist that has truly grown in to her own since emerging onto the music scene in 2004 before making her first mark on mainstream with her widely-popular single “Promise Ring” in 2007, Tiffany Evans will be one to watch in 2016. Now 23, she’s put her own spin on Chris Brown‘s “Back To Sleep” and like most of musical ventures, it’s pretty impressive. Be sure to check out her latest project All Me.
Teedra Moses – No Regrets
Though she prefers to fly under the radar, New Orleans-born songstress Teedra Moses has been a staple in R&B music for over a decade. This hidden gem on 2015’s Cognac & Conversation gives new and old listeners a chance to hear exactly why Teedra’s voice and signature sound is one in a million.
Tink – Million
Midwest raper/songstress Tink has had all eyes on her since the release of her debut project Winter’s Diary nearly five years ago and for good reason. A refreshing female talent who’s projected to shake things up in hip hop even more in 2016, Tink’s 2015 take on this Aaliyah classic made quite the impression. Given her track record so far, we’d says she’s just getting started with plenty more to come.
