New R&B/Soul Releases: Sept. 2011

What's New?


The biggest release of the month is by singer Jason Derulo, who dabbles in R&B but is mainly known as a pop artist. In addition to him the list also includes eight other releases, including the latest by the highly underrated Syleena Johnson, whose fifth album is appropriately titled Album 5: Underrated; pop-Soul duo Nikki & Rich; and alternative Soul singer Van Hunt, whose new album doesn't include either of his two recently released singles. For the full details of the new R&B/Soul album releases for September 2011, have a look below.
