Bryan J’s ‘Why’ Is Indie-R&B By Way Of Michael Jackson [Stream]

All signs point to a golden age of alternative R&B, and Bryan J is the newest on the list of artists who are making the kind of minimalistic, sexy jams that we adore. With a songwriting resume that already counts Tinashe, Zandaya and totally non-ironic fave 2-Chainz, Brain has already proven that he’s got the R&B goods. With “Why”, though, he demonstrates that he’s ready to join the ranks of more minimalist peers like Shy Girls. The track samples Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature” and at times nearly feels like a spiritual cover of the track. Check out “Why” and get ready to groove.
