#MusicNews: Apple Music Salutes Best In R&B And Soul With Launch Of Soul September
Published 2 weeks ago by

R&B and soul are two genres that are able to convey the intense highs and lows of human emotion like few can, and so to celebrate the best of both, Apple Music is launching Soul September, a month-long celebration of the genres’ legendary artists and its new wave.

Apple Music’s Soul September campaign will feature a selection of 14 exclusive playlists from some of the biggest names in R&B. From iconic singers like John Legend, Toni Braxton, Tamia and Anthony Hamilton, to current stars of the scene like Ari Lennox, Alina Baraz, Snoh Aalegra, Teyana Taylor, UP NEXT alumni Victoria Monet and Mzansi’s very own superstar, Elaine.

Each guest playlist features the artists’ favorite R&B songs of all time, alongside songs that have been vital in helping them forge their own career paths. The collection will also include the best new R&B releases as well as classic albums, music videos and Artist Essentials playlists.

“During this exciting period in R&B where we’re seeing both breaking artists and legacy artists release such impactful projects — and collaborate with each other — Soul September is a much needed celebration of their work and the music that inspired them.” – Nadeska Alexis (Apple Music 1 presenter and host of R&B Now)

“This is like my ‘Throwback Thursday’ playlist that I listen to most days! I love old school jams, it reminds me of when I was cool, young and hot but didn’t even know I was cool, young, and hot! No matter what, when you look back you will always remember those hot fun summer moments. Some of the newer songs have that same flavour. I wanted to highlight younger artists who are bringing that same heat.” – Toni Braxton

“Soul September makes me think of warmth, romance, passion, feeling nostalgic and everything in between. This playlist highlights some of the artists that I grew up listening to, and that have paved the way for young R&B and soul artists like myself.” – Elaine

“There are so many songs that belong in this playlist. Here are just a few of my favorites! All of the artists and songs in my selections give a sense of timeless! The music transcends any trend while still allowing for nostalgia. These songs will definitely trigger some great memories from the soul.” – Victoria Monet

Apple Music’s Soul September campaign has the best moods and grooves that the most exciting artists in R&B and soul have curated exclusively.
