“Rolling In The Deep” vocalist,[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Adele[/lastfm], is undoubtedly one of the newest, freshest sounds on radio today. With her rich, soulful voice, London-born Adele sounds like someone took a time machine, plucked her off a stage at a 1960s Northern Soul club, and told her to single-handedly change the face of “pop” music today.

Except she didn’t do it single-handedly. For the last ten years, the United Kingdom has been the stomping grounds of many talented neo-soul singers . Adele was just lucky enough to have a sound that could transcend continents and make it on mainstream radio. If you like Adele’s sound, you should check out our Top Ten British Neo-Soul Divas.

Even though the feisty “Price Tag” songstress, Jessie J,  is renowned for her hard-edged renditions on the prototypical pop song structure, after her recent jaw-dropping performance on BET’s 106 and Park, we think she is the next great blues-soul singer.  We hope that she changes auto-tuned pop songs into something more organic–like the old days of soul.
