My Melanin Men that make your girl get in her feelings.

Anderson .Paak

Musicality, showmanship, cool, and groovy is how I describe his soulful sound. I discovered Anderson .Paak on my “recommended videos” area of my Youtube channel after watching H.E.R. on NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert. He is like a Maxwell with jazz drum techniques. His own NPR Tiny Desk Concert is one of my favorite. His new album, Ventura is an artistic journey that you will love. My favorite songs are Come Home (feat. Andre 3000) and Make It Better (feat. Smokie Robinson). Anderson.Paak is #blissfullybiancaapproved.

Daniel Caesar

A beautiful, soulful falsetto with the smoothness of D’Angelo. His voice is out of this world. I discovered Daniel Caesar on the radio singing Best Part feat. H.E.R.. I was like…I need to be in love to dance to this song at my wedding. He is a special, neo-soul artist. I love both of his albums, Freudian and Pilgrim’s Paradise. My favorite songs are Best Part, Blessed, Take Me Away, Japanese Denim, and Violet. I made a Daniel Caesar Playlist of the albums and other singles below. He is definitely #blissfullybiancaapproved.

P.J. Morton

A cool neo-soul, musical master is PJ Morton. I posted a blissful favorite of his album, Gumbo Unplugged (Live) a couple months ago. I have his album on repeat. He is a part of Maroon 5 but he branched out and it has paid off (Grammy-winning paid off). His collaborations are great. It is truly good music which is hard to come by. My favorite songs are Claustrophobic, First Began, and Go Through Your Phone. He is #blissfullybiancaapproved.

Blissfully,

Bianca
