Daley, "Alone Together EP" (Universal Republic)

There's something magnificent about Daley's sweet tone -- he coos on songs lightly, but it's also demanding and emotional. That swag was all over his 2011 mixtape, "Those Who Wait," which was top-notch from its opener to its closing number.

The English singer borrows three songs from that album for his six-song EP and major label offering, "Alone Together." It's short, sweet and satisfying.

The song that is propelling him to R&B fame, "Alone Together," is soft and breezy. It features fellow English R&B singer Marsha Ambrosius, and their tones blend nicely on the track; sometimes you'll forget who's who. He keeps up with the English-R&B theme by covering Amy Winehouse's "Love Is a Losing Game" and collaborating with Jessie J over a hip-hop beat on "Remember Me."

"Blame the World," with its strings, is a winner, as is the feel-good "Game Over." The 23-year-old singer-songwriter -- who has collaborated with the Gorillaz and received two nominations at this year's Soul Train Awards -- closes with "Those Who Wait," a song about breaking through with lyrics like: "I'm waiting because I know I'm going to be next in line to claim my prize and be all that I want to be." You got that right.
