Gallant: Flashback to the 90s

Playlist Gallant: Flashback to the 90s

At only 23 years-old, breakout singer Gallant has been praised by Sir Elton John, collaborated with Seal and Sufjan Stevens, and played sold-out shows across the country. With a swoon-worthy voice over beats inspired by 90s jams (think Brandy, TLC, and Destiny’s Child), Gallant is redefining R&B for a new era. For our Next Up partnership with Billboard we asked the genre-defying musician to choose some of the tracks that inspired his debut album, Ology. The result? An R&B flashback with a contemporary twist to play on repeat.
