Sensitive Soul Men, wanted to make a playlist in contrast to the one that showcased songstresses longing for love.

R/R = Rewind/revived
First addition of happening tunes as of late.
In no particular order, below are the tracks/videos of tunes that have encouraged and revived.
Shabazz Palaces - Forerunner Foray
Shabazz Palaces are back! With recently released track titled "Forerunner Foray" we are now again blessed with the sounds of easing chills of experimental and much needed psychedelic, distorted, and mystic hip-hop that Shabazz Palaces know how to make best.
Their new album "Lese Majesty" will be released 7/29 on SubPop.
Usher - Good Kisser (Disclosure Remix)
Usher is also back! Bringing us some groovy disco vibes that I am glad grown Usher is sharing us with in this not good pop universe we're living in this year. Perhaps it's Pharrell's influence but luckily Usher's strong vocals and carefree energy is showing through.
Also, with a strong track that "Good Kisser" is comes an equally strong house remix by our favorite resident dj brother's, Disclosure. Their remix, right, is one of my favorite remixes of the year so far.
P.S. "She Came To Give It To You" featuring Nicki Minaj is another dope new release from grown falsetto Usher.
Zinc - Show Me
The essence of house is to get one to be loose and move. This song does not only get one to their feet but also it's video let's you know that your dance moves were correct.
FKA Twigs - Two Weeks
Don't have much words for this but to just watch the video and just be mesmerized by the subtle-yet not subtle entrancing vocals and enchanting visuals.
