Happy Feature Friday! This week on The Lunch Table, we’re highlighting new music across hip-hop and R&B. From The Lunch Table regulars in Mannywellz and Kelechi, to Los Angeles’ R&B sisterhood in Ceraadi, to the Bay Area’s next prodigy Elujay, here’s a round of four songs you’ll need on your playlist.

‘Watermelon’ serves an unprecedented version of Mannywellz. Though the Maryland-based musician feeds the record with his signature sound, the chorus is more laid back, hilarious, and entertaining based on his choice of words. Recently, Mannywellz announced he’ll be opening for Jidenna on his Long Live the Chief Tour.
Ceraadi recently released a cover to Monica’s ‘Before You Walk Out My Life’. With a reimagined beat produced by Grammy-nominated producer Dem Jointz, the trifecta of sisters add their unique hood pop style into the R&B classic joint.
In celebration of his birthday, Kelechi comes out from his hiding grounds of music with ‘See Me Grow’. The record seems to aim at individuals who have attempted to hinder the Atlanta rapper’s growth since the release of his previous project Before the Quarter. The STNDRD founder also hinted on an upcoming project titled Quarter Life Crisis, which explains why he’s presented this dark single.
Amongst the revival of the Hyphy Movement comes a more conscious version of the genre. This week Oakland’s Elujay released his single ‘Linguistics’ in which he differentiates himself as a hustler within an industry of fake-busy people. If you ain’t talking money, you ain’t talking to Elujay.
