    Top 25 Singles of 2019 (Part II)

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 29/12/2019

    » As tradition dictates, we rummaged through some 200 singles we'd reviewed over the past 12 months and narrowed it down to 25.

    Portrait Of An Artist

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 06/10/2019

    » "I just don't wanna be back in this place again/ I mean, I done cried a little/ Tried a little, failed a little/ I don't wanna do it again," Brittany Howard confesses on History Repeats, a funky opener to her solo debut Jaime. Built on acid jazz and neo-soul groove, the song bustles with the genre-blurring spirit of her former band Alabama Shakes and her own irreverent energy. Singing those words, Howard sounds empowered and energised like a weight has been lifted. "History repeats and we defeat ourselves/ Come on everybody, one more time again," before you know it, the song turns into an infectious anthem, leaving in its wake a glimpse into her self-discovery that would go on to define the rest of the album.
