In the past two weeks, male R&B has gotten a much needed shot in the arm thanks to Odd Future’s Frank Ocean and Toronto’s The Weeknd. Both are blending the their trademark soul with electro and indie influences, and both EPs have the Internet going nuts. Personally I’m more in Franks camp, (Wolf Gang!) as Nostalgia has gotten plenty more plays on the iPod. And this new track, Pyrite (Fools Gold) proves that the EP wasn’t a fluke. This dude has solid talent, and I’m glad that the music industry is giving him a second chance. Check it. (via Hip-Hop is Cool Again)
