EDITORS’ NOTES

Goapele’s sixth album, Dreamseeker, is full of sultry R&B and stylish, minimalist beats that bring to mind Aailyah’s futuristic pop—Goapele even channels the late singer’s spirit by echoing some of her old lyrics on “$ecret,” which combines creeping grooves and rattling hi-hats with her soaring, celestial voice. Elsewhere, "Stay" (assisted by BJ the Chicago Kid) is a heartfelt boy-meets-girl ballad underscored by glimmering keys and swirling synths, encapsulating the album’s poised elegance.
