Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

Genre: Neo-soul

Why We're Excited: Adrian Daniel's modern R&B slithers and shape-shifts alluringly, propelled by a commanding falsetto that's practically engineered to make knees quiver. In "This City," Daniel performs with the commitment of a veteran balladeer, but his sonic surroundings situate him firmly in the present day.
