The dubstepper cum electro-soul crooner has racked up an impressive star-studded list of collaborations this year: contributions from Bon Iver and Frank Ocean on his latest, The Colour in Anything, with production from Rick Rubin and two tracks on Beyoncé's Lemonade. Blake's peers' inspiration feels palpable on the new record, as the Brit augments the scope of his trademark falsetto R&B from dubstep-flecked sparsity to a more expansively textured landscape—a welcome, poignant transformation.
