    Feel free to post anything and everything related to R&B music, artists, in general. This is for the R&B lovers out there

    Here's my posts

    Favorite R&B artist overall

    Aaliyah - I admired her since I was seven years old. Almost any song that she made I have heard and loved it. Before her sudden and unfair death she was about to switch the industry game up (acting, modeling, music) Kinda what Jamie Foxx is doing right now.

    Favorite seasoned artist

    I'm a sucker for the old school R&B and a few artists to name would be Al Green, Anita Baker, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Freddie Jackson, Patti LaBelle, Aretha, etc

    Favorite R&B boy band

    I liked Boyz II Men but Jodeci stole my heart lol

    Favorite Girl Group

    This one is tough

    I'm going with En Vogue. Don't Let Go (Love) still remains the most powerful and chilling song I've ever heard

    Favorite songs

    In general R&B has greats songs but my top five would be

    1. Aaliyah - One In A Million - futuristic, chilling, forefront, different

    2. Jodeci - Come And Talk To Me - Sexy song lol

    3. R. Kelly - You Remind Me Of Something - I got in so much trouble singing this in choir once lol

    4. Patti LaBellle - If Only You Knew - SHE ripped it icon_smile.gif

    5. Beyonce' - Me, Myself, and I - One of my anthems for triflin, no good, fake lames

    Modern artist

    I like Melanie Fiona, Chrissette Michele, and Jill Scott oh and Kelly Rowland

    R&B crush

    Tevin Campbell haha

    Songbird

    Mariah Carey

    Now its your turn. Remember this thread is strictly for lovers of R&B (dat good music) lol icon_smile.gif

    in modern times, musiq soulchild. going to post some of my favorite joints of his in a minute. icon_biggrin.gif bilal oliver. erykah badu. jill scott.

    some of the artists you posted like beyonce are overrated as a motherfucker or fell off the face of the earth-r. kelly. that real talk album of his was a fucking joke. i remember that this forum that i used to post on where some of the members had the audacity to call that bullshit a classic. that was a terrible album as well as unintentional comedy. that zoo record. LMAO "we are coconuts and banana trees" oh dear.

    that song was good but i'd be lying to you if it didn't sound like "teach me how to love" part 2. it sound like a continuation of the song. maybe it isn't. maybe it's not. i love dude's albums even though i'll admit that the last one he put out wasn't as good as his other four albums. he went lite fm on that record. i love the "backtowhere", "befriends", "single" and "lovecontract"

    I agree. I really hopes he can come back with a strong record he makes real music

    If You Believe does sound like a sequel to Teach Me lol
