Seattle R&B singer/producer Cha Cha Malone's "Breakthrough" EP

Posted by Andrew Matson


"I Still" by Cha Cha Malone

Hat tip to djblesOne for cluing me in to Cha Cha Malone, a Seattle R&B singer and producer streaming his "Breakthrough" EP at "Breakthrough" is cast in the mold of the current king of R&Bemo, The-Dream — shimmer-stutter synthesizers, two-step drums, octave vocal stabs — and succeeds in being well-engineered, well-written, and emotionally resonant. Dig "I Still," above. Be enveloped by the fake strings. Float away on echoes of rain sticks. Get over your ego and admit you are hopelessly in love.
