Jerome: I was recently asked to listen to the music of Chris Stylez so that I could interview him. What I heard was modern R&B with a nod to the classic styling and arraignments of R&B’s ancestors.

I also heard the influence of hip-hop in both the drums and the clever use of interludes and skits as well as vibes that felt more poppy here and there. I heard songs about quality sex, albeit “no strings attached”…songs about strippers and songs about love, both lost and found. Then I asked these questions:


JJ:  any plans to tour soon?
CS: The fall..

Nope, love it!

Of course.
