The alternative side of R&B is having an explosion right now!
The Weeknd is doing extremely well, and we are also loving Mykky Ekko, Joel Compass and Raleigh Ritchie.
Ritchie's gearing up for the release of his new album and has given us a taste of new music - which is even more on the alternative side! This is like some FKA twigs shiz. And we love her!
Check out the soulful and sinister You Make It Worse above!

Mikky Ekko, you are one sultry crooner!
In the newly released music video for his AH-Mazing song Smile, he has some real chemistry with his love interest!
But is their onscreen love meant to be? With an ominous car crash in the beginning of the music video, don't be too sure that it will all work out in the end!
Bottom line: we love this song, and this music video tells a heart-wrenching story!

You may have first heard of Mikky Ekko as the featured vocalist and co-writer of Rihanna's hit song Stay.
Now, the son of a preacher man is hitting us with some solo goodness and it is bound to put a Smile on your face.
Sweet, left-of-center pop! This reminds us of fun., and that's a great thing!

Chris Malinchak may not be a household name yet, but this song could change that!
The New York DJ/producer's latest single Stranger, featuring Mikky Ekko, is a smash!
The feelgood song reminds us of old school Michael Jackson. Pop filled with soulfulness! It's got a hint of Bruno Mars and Chromeo too. All things we LOVE!
This is disco done right for a new era!
