This June, Essence magazine features three of R&B's first ladies: the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning chart-toppers Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, and our very own Jill Scott! Read a preview of the interview with all three ladies and hear how they feel about their 1st album's debut success, how they cope with the pressure, their feelings about the record labels, and their idea of the perfect song. For more, pick up Essence on stands this June. For more amazing R&B check out DJ Soul's "The Saint Tropez Mix," Diddy X DJ Soul. Recorded for Diddy (who was lounging in St. Tropez) after spinning that 80s R&B we all miss at the CFDA Awards after-party, DJ Soul is giving away this treat for FREE, full of classics.
Speaking of R&B divas, the newest lady on the rise is UK singer (and rapper)Estelle. Read this exclusive interview where she gets into her style, her sound, working with John Legend and Kanye West, and her thoughts on the music industry.
