Hometown: New York, New York

Genre: R&B

Why We're Excited: Issa Rae is a comedian and actor whose hilarious HBO comedy, Insecure, doubles as a showcase for tremendous hip-hop and alternative R&B, much of it little-heard nationally. Isa Reyes is a young alternative R&B singer whose tremendous music, all of it little-heard nationally, would double as an amazing soundtrack for the hilarious HBO comedy Insecure. C'mon, universe, make it happen. Available on a Soundcloud page that chronicles Reyes' in-progress ideas and rapidly jelling talent, "Sweet Tooth" is a breezy and irresistible two and a half minutes of synth-driven flirtation — a too-brief swath of blushy, youthful innocence that begs for a full album.
