New Music To Know This Week: Jessie Reyez Humanizes Immigrants & More

If you missed the amplified snaps from early ’00s R&B, Teenear is bringing them back. They’re the star, along with her amazing voice, of this new track. The production here is reminiscent of something I’d expect to hear Usher or Ciara singing over from that time, but it has enough elements of new productions by Mustard and his ilk to still feel modern. What’s old and all-consuming is Teener’s vocals. They sound steeped in history and sadness but are pushed forward in a way that’s very now. Don’t be surprised when this song hooks you.
