V103's Summer Block Party is famed for attracting top R&B talent, and this year's hotter-than-ever lineup brings Brandy, Keith Sweat, Ne-Yo, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Tank and Daley to the Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago. Grammy-winning songbird Brandy won hearts with her chart-toppers, like "I Wanna Be Down," "Baby" and "The Boy is Mine." OG soul star Keith Sweat specializes in house-party jams like his breakout single "I Want Her" and the slow-burning "Make It Last Forever," plus hits like "Twisted" and "Nobody." In fact, every single one of his dozen album releases has made it onto the Billboard
R&B Top 10 list, including six that hit No. 1. Soul singer-songwriter and three-time Grammy-winner Ne-Yo has ruled the airwaves for the past decade, effortlessly bridging the gap between R&B and pop with major singles like "So Sick," "Closer" and "Miss Independent." He's coming off the release of his 2018 disc Good Man
. Also set to perform are Ashanti and Ja Rule, the pair who topped the charts with their hits "Always On Time" and "Mesmerize," along with Tank ("#Bday") and Daley, a British songwriter who's worked with everyone from Gorillaz to Pharrell Williams.
