VanJess Release ‘Silk Canvas’ RemixesTracks Featuring Saba, Ari Lennox, Xavier Omär, Bas & More
'Silk Canvas' was praised by Pitchfork for its "captivating fusion of 90's R&B with contemporary electronic touches." The record boasts features from some of the genre's finest contemporaries from more established acts like Masego and GoldLink to exciting newcomers Leikeli47, Berhana & Little Simz. The sisters' collaborations and sultry, crooning vocals prove they are a "two-piece cultivating their own strand of R&B" (Vogue).

Growing up between Lagos, Nigeria, and California, VanJess have brought an entirely new take to contemporary R&B, one that pays tribute to 90s greats like TLC, SWV, and Aaliyah, while instinctually inciting an inimitable style. The sisters cut their teeth online with a string of viral covers, bursting onto the scene with their self-released debut album, 'Silk Canvas,' last summer. The album was a definitive R&B statement, a smooth, seductive record establishing the sisters as ones to watch, to take the R&B world by storm.
