The line of up-and-coming R&B stars can kind of seem daunting. The newest in the long line is New York native Niqa Mor, who has already earned tour dates alongside Omarion and apt comparisons to star Christina Milian. Now, jumping on her steadily rising acclaim, Mor has debuted her first album DEFY.

Cruising with nervy R&B, fully imbued with her steadily improving pop presence, the 13-track album is pure Top 40 chic. One listen and Mor's effortless acclimation is hard to miss, chiming in smokey falsettos and impossibly catching hooks all through the album.
