The musical genre Quiet Storm is essentially the Yacht Rock of soul and R&B. Yacht Rock has smooth music, while Quiet Storm has slow jams. Smokey Robinson and his album Quiet Storm are the grandfather of this format. I appreciate those 70s slow jams though I have a preference for the 80s hits like Lionel Richie’s Hello, or Sade’s Smooth Operator. If you’d like to learn more, Pitchfork has an excellent article on this genre.

So sit by the fire, cuddle up, and take a listen.
