Here’s a roundup of new hip-hop and R&B music from Eric Bellinger, BJ The Chicago Kid, Leela James and more. 

Eric Bellinger caters to the ladies on his new single, “Only Fan,” inspired by the popular subscription service, OnlyFans. “Just let me be your only fan,” he sings on the track while discussing women who desire validation from social apps.

BJ The Chicago Kid links up with New Orleans vocalist Lucky Daye for “Make You Feel Good.” The romantic ballad was produced by Bongo ByTheWay and will arrive on BJ EP 4AM, which drops July 23. 

The following week, soul singer Leela James will release her highly-anticipated album, See Me, on July 30. It will feature James’ 2021 songs “Complicated,” “Put It on Me,” and her new single, “You’re the One,” which is out today. 

Meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson takes us back with a cover of Aretha Franklin‘s 1967 hit “(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman” to accompany her starring role in the Franklin biopic, RESPECT. The film and its soundtrack will be released on August 13. 

West Coast natives Blxst and Bino Rideaux return with their collaborative project, Sixtape 2, featuring double the tracks of their six-song EP, Sixtape. The second installment blends both artists’ stylistic lyricism over hip-hop and R&B tracks with catchy hooks. 

And in case you missed it, rising singer Muni Long dropped her new EP, Nobody Knows, along with a music video for her single, “Just the Beginning.” Long also recently contributed to Big Femme Energy, Vol. 1, the debut album from female-led music and entertainment company, Femme It Forward.
