  • I'd never heard of Corinne Bailey Rae which is a bit embarrassing to admit as I consider myself the biggest R&B fan in the world.... Just listened now and I realised I have of course heard Put Your Records On, I just didn't know who sang it. It's not typically the type of thing I like tho so explains why I'm not familiar with her. She honestly gives me slight Lily Allen vibes but more soulful.

    In Regards to Monica, I absolutely love her but The Makings Of Me is the album of hers I'm least familiar with and so it didn't make my 40.

      • I’m confused. What was R&B about Adele and Rihanna’s debut?

          At the same time oh her release, Toni also had Libra on the shelves. They both taught me that short albums can be good, subject to quality material on it. One of my favourite albums to be honest.

            • Moni**a!!! The Makings of Me is my favorite album from her. Besides the first single, that album is literally the essence of the Goon. My only vote so far.

              I used to DRAG Fantasy Ride, but in hindsight...it is now one of Ciara's ok albums.

                  Music of the Sun is basically all Dancehall & Reggae so it still falls under the 'Urban' music umbrella. Some of the slower songs there are R&B-ish as well.

                  I'd say her first two albums were Urban, hence why the Beyonce comparison was strong during those two eras until it stopped when her transformation began with Good Girl Gone Bad.

                    • I liked the singles from Simply Deep a lot (Stole & Train on a Track are it) . Never listened to the full album though. My first pick appeared - I did expect Corinne to chart higher though. It's a really good debut but I guess people forgot about it as it fell 48 spots from last time this list was made.

                      Will we see albums that didn't make Top 100 abi?

                        The lead single was rubbish. I don’t recognize it as the lead single. That album is perfection.

                            We'll see. Will probably do Bubbling Under when we're nearing the top 50. There's 1 particular album that I was so surprised didn't make it to the top 100.

                                Remember when Solange was a video vixen for this Timbaland-assisted song?
                                I'm gonna do Blast from the Past to reminiscent some of the moments from 2000s R&B & Hip-Hop that we may or may not have forgotten.

                                • Anyways, that Amerie performance was freaking INCREDIBLE! Damn. Awards performances back then were really the bomb! And World Music Awards wasn't that big of an event to begin with.

                                  • Mya‘s Moodring was and still is the perfect SUMMER album for me! I remember having bought it in the Netherlands and have not stopped playing it ever since. Mya was fantastic during the 00s and possibly my favourite R&B singer.

                                        I voted THE HIGH ROAD. An almost flawless R&B record with such a powerful title track. This & Good To Know will be forever in my heart.

                                          • Music of the Sun is underrated. Its title track is one of her career-finest gems. Island girl magic.

                                            19 has some killer tracks: "Melt My Heart to Stone", "Make You Feel My Love", "Tired". It's grown on me over the years, though it's certainly the weakest of her trilogy set.

                                            I've liked what I've heard from Moodring, but I still need to hear it in full.

It also peaked at number 12 on the Canadian Albums Chart and at number 24 on the UK Albums Chart. Re-recorded versions of JoJo and The High Road were released on December 21, 2018.
