      Oh was wondering when this countdown would be up! I'll send my list in a few days. There were some really good albums last year although I don't think I will struggle to condense my list down to 15 as I normally do.

        Added. Thanks!

          I'd actually disagree about Mariah's latest Christmas album. It's a compilation featuring remixes of existing covers, with only one "new" cover and some very short interludes.

          I'm glad Jonathan pointed out Childish and Mac, and I would also like to add Jacob Collier's Djesse Vol. 3.
          Rest In Peace Lilly!

            I'll vote in this, it's not been a great year for R&B but I've been surprised by some real gems so if my votes encourage new listeners then I'm all for it ​​​​​​

                It was one of the best years in R&B imo.

                  Different perspectives, I've enjoyed output from previous years moreso - some decent names there but not all released their best work

                    I do agree. There are only 5 albums from 2020 (3 of them are EP's) where I could genuinely play from start to finish without disliking a single song which means I definitely need to check out more albums.

                            As in the K-Pop's Kai? Yeah his EP was full of bops. I just wish he was more... you know... vocally talented.

                              Yes that one. I don't know much about him but he sounded pretty good on the EP.

                                You should check out Baekhyun's Delight: The 2nd Mini Album if you like Kai's EP. It came out last year. Both are from the same group(EXO) but Baekhyun has an even better voice and it's really suited for R&B.

                                  Thanks, I'm new to Korean stuff, I don't really like that I don't understand what they say, but the beats and melodies seem very strong.

                                    I actually think Baek's EP is pretty weak aside from the lead single. Both of Woodz's EPs easily win for me when it comes to the R&B side of K-Pop even though I only discovered his music like a few days ago. He's pretty bad at picking lead singles though.

                                    Edit: Nevermind, it was his 2021's EP that I like. Damn Korean artists with these countless releases, I always mix them up.

                                      I can't believe that I'm cutting my queen off my list, but trying to make it 15 was TOUGH.

                                        I will do my best to participate, but have a lot of catching up to do as I spent most of 2020 listening to DJ shows like Yummy Beats, Soulection Radio, and The Future Beats Show rather than full albums. A cram sesh is in order

                                        Feel your pulse it's groove o'clock
                                        A message to madness
                                        Feel music that's realness

                                          I had my Top 12 in just a minute

                                          And randomly selected 3 good albums/EP by choice.

                                          Easy as pie this year round.

                                            Full time working really decreased my music consumption especially since 2020 was a dry year a-list wise for r&b/hip-hop and I have less time to check out new artists. I'll definitely vote though

                                              Anyways, fyi decided to remove Mariah's Christmas album from the list since it's basically a 'remix compilation' of her previous Christmas songs with only 1 new song + a few short interludes. Also, it's Pop. The Rarities is still eligible though.
