Although R&B's female singers consistently dominate the soulful music genre year after year, 2022's top male R&B artists (such as The Weeknd, Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak's Silk Sonic) are making waves across streaming platforms and Billboard charts, not to mention some of the hottest upcoming music festivals and concert tours. Singer-songwriter and Kanye West collaborator Ant Clemons recently released his second studio EP entitled 4Play, and industry moguls Khalid and Lucky Daye dropped fire new singles "Last Call" and "NWA (feat. Lil Durk)." Grammy-nominated GIVĒON is currently working on an emotional new album, and both Academy Award winner and 2022 Album of the Year Grammy recipient Jon Batiste continues to disrupt industry standards with his powerful jazz/rhythn n' blues fusion compositions.
