About this playlist
This batch of R&B singles features R. Kelly's "Genius," a teaser from his upcoming Black Panties, which is scheduled for December 10. Alicia Keys released her Girl on Fire last winter, so she won't have a new album for a while; in the meantime, there's "Better You, Better Me" from the movie The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete. There are cuts from Mario (whose Evolve may drop before 2013 ends), Ledisi, Jennifer Hudson, Maejor Ali (previously known as Bei Maejor) and Prince. Also included are remix versions of K. Michelle's "V.S.O.P.," Sevyn Streeter's "It Won't Stop" and August Alsina's "I Luv This Sh*t."
