    Never listened to Talk a Good Game, although it does contain her most ratchet lyric ever:

    Meanwhile this ninja putting his hands on me

    • Kelly fell off after Ms. Kelly to me.

      Cardi B is... Let me just say I love watching her interviews, I think she's hilarious and has a unique personality but her music is a no. Her tone annoys me for some reason. She's a really good performer though.

      • I voted for Talk A Good Game because DIRTY LAUNDRY and DOWN ON LOVE and I REMEMBER which are beautifully crafted songs.

          • Talk a Good Game was great. I thought Invasion of Privacy was a solid debut.

            • Talk A Good Game is R&B gold. Kelly's only great album tbh (Ms. Kelly was ok).

              Cardith gave me an album full of pussy popping bops. I'm forever thankful.

              Tough Love is the album that got me into my Uk fav.

                  • Out of the last couple of batches I only voted for Beauty Behind The Madness (#17) and Watch The Throne (#23). Beauty Behind The Madness isn't necessarily Abel's best album, but it showed more longevity then Starboy with greater highs. After Hours is definitely his best record, but that's for next decade's countdown

                    Watch The Throne finds two of the best rappers in the game at their best. I wasn't crazy about it when it first came out, mostly because I was too busy with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, but it's an awesome record with great highs (Otis, Lift Off and Church In The Wild).

                    The last batch are all great records. Talk A Good Game in particular is probably my favorite Kelly album.

                    Rest In Peace Lilly!

                          Kaleidoscope Dream is the second studio album by American R&B singer and songwriter Miguel. It was released on September 25, 2012, by RCA Records.

                          After the commercial breakthrough of his debut album All I Want Is You (2010), Miguel wanted to play a larger creative role in his music, leading him to principally produce and write Kaleidoscope Dream. He recorded most of the album at Platinum Sound Recording Studios in New York City and MJP Studios in Los Angeles, working with producers Oak Felder, Jerry "Wonda" Duplessis, and Salaam Remi, among others.

                          The album's music draws on R&B, pop, funk, rock and soul styles, as well as elements from electronic and psychedelic music. The producers incorporated dense bass lines, buzzing synthesizers, and hazy, reverbed sounds in the songs, which deal mostly with sex, romance, and existential ideas. Miguel titled Kaleidoscope Dream as a metaphor for life and wanted the songs to reflect his lifestyle and personality. Kaleidoscope Dream received widespread acclaim from critics, who praised its eccentric style and Miguel's singing and songwriting.

                            • Did not expect these three albums to be so high on this chart. They're good, I just didn't know we had such a strong Miguel fanbase on here. Adorn is still a tune.

                              Was I the only one disappointed in Sweetener? Besides the three singles I found it very underwhelming and one of Ariana's weakest efforts.

                                Ariana‘s SWEETENER was in my list too. Incredible singles, a few album tracks that bang. Cute effort.

                                  No you're not. I felt the same way about her two last albums. The singles were good but the album tracks are mostly just the same, generic-sounding Trappy songs with a few cute ballads here and there but that's it. They really picked the best songs as the singles.

                                  • Sweetener was so disappointing IMO. Great singles and tons of filler. Sade and Kelly <3

                                    • Happy to see many Miguel albums on the list, he truly deserves it. Kaleidoscope Dream is one of my favorite albums ever. Wildhear is also his 2nd best work imo.
                                      Talk A Good Game is clearly Kelly's best record, and I gave it many many spins. Surprised to see it that high though, it wouldn't be even in my Top 50 tbh.
                                      Also so happy to see Love, Marriage, Divorce. It's such a solid piece of art, from the start to the end. I wasn't into it back in the day, but then I moved in with my hubby and then got married etc..., it hits harder now.

                                            Pink Friday is the debut studio album by Trinidadian-American rapper Nicki Minaj. It was released on November 22, 2010 by Young Money, Cash Money and Universal Motown. After signing a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment in 2009, Minaj began planning the album that same year and work continued into 2010. Minaj enlisted a variety of producers whose efforts resulted in a primarily hip hop record, which sees additional influences from R&B and pop music. The album features guest vocals from Eminem, Rihanna, Drake, will.i.am, Kanye West and Natasha Bedingfield.

                                            After a much anticipated release as the result of Minaj's extensive featured appearances on the singles of other artists, Pink Friday debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200, selling 375,000 copies in its first week. It ultimately reached number one on the chart and also charted within the top 20 in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The album has been certified 3× platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for combined album sales, track sales, and song streams equivalent of three million album-sale units. Pink Friday was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 54th Grammy Awards in 2012, alongside Minaj's other nominations for Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance for the single "Moment 4 Life".

                                              • Okay guys, let's play a little fun game as we're approaching the top 20.

                                                WHICH ALBUMS ARE FLOPPING?



                                                I'm going to list all the albums ranked at #2 on their respective year-end chart (except for 2012).
                                                3 out of these 9 albums failed to make it into the top 100 this time.

                                                The question is, can you guess what those three albums are?

                                                2010: Drake, Thank Me Later
