INTRODUCINGTay Walker[NEW MUSIC]

If there was one young singer who totally snuck up on R&B fans and grabbed their attention last year, it had to be 22-year-old Tay Walker. With a gritty, sexy vocal style that lives somewhere between Alexander O’Neal (for the old heads) and Tyrese (for the newbies), the Inglewood, California native has already made major waves. As a standout vocalist/keyboardist for INTRODUCING alums The Internet on their last two albums, and touring with rapper Mac Miller (who’ll appear on Walker’s debut album later this year), he deserves his own time to shine.

Tay Walker’s got classic R&B chops—the key ingredient that balances out his slow-burning joints with his melodic, mid-tempo jams. Listen to his fantastic The Tay Walker EP here and click above to play his latest video, “Karma.”—Sun Singleton
