  • UKMIX R&B/Hip-Hop AOTY 2020 (STILL ACCEPTING LAST-MINUTE VOTES!)

    ...and we're back!



    What is this countdown?
    It's the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums of the Year 2020. You guys vote for your favorite albums then I will count them down from #50 to #1.

    Rules
    1. Listen to your favorite R&B/Hip-Hop Albums of 2020 again, rank them from #1 (favorite) to #15 (least favorite), then PM the list to me.
    2. You may submit up to 15 albums (max) and 5 albums (min).
    3. Remember the genre. They have to be within the category of Urban music, as in R&B, Hip-Hop, Soul, Gospel, Trap, Reggae, Dancehall, Funk, Afrobreat & Reggaeton (and many more probably). The term ‘Urban’ has been used so widely these days so I’m going to leave it open to you guys to decide which albums to vote. Albums that are less ‘Urban’ will probably end up with just fewer votes.
    4. The album has to be released between January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
    5. You can also put some comments & list your favorite songs from each album you vote, just for fun.
    6. PM your list to me, please do not post it on this thread until the countdown is over.
    7. The deadline is May 2, 2021 (as for now).

    -

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    May I vote for albums that are not on the list below?
    Yes, as long as it’s 'Urban' and released between January 1 - December 31.

    Can I vote for non-English albums that belong to Urban music, i.e. K-Pop or Latin Pop?
    Of course, why not.

    How about EP’s & mixtapes?
    Yes. As long as it contains at least 5 original songs.

    Albums that are borderline Pop-R&B?
    I'll let you decide by yourself if an album is R&B enough for this countdown. If you think it is then sure go vote for it!

    Live albums?
    No please.

    Greatest hit, remix & compilation albums (Now 42 - NOW That's What I Call Music, GRAMMY Nominees CDs, etc.)?
    No, no, no.

    Soundtracks? Christmas albums?
    As long as they fit within 'Urban' music, sure.

                  I wouldn’t count on that because positions wasn’t everybody’s favorite.

                    Loose, not entirely true.

                    abi’s criteria for EPs opens some choices for Mariah Carey as she (re-)released a host of EPs including “Mariah Carey - The Live Debut” EP in July 2020.

                    But even without the EP Mariah released “The Rarities” in October 2020 and “Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas Special” Soundtrack in December 2020.

                    If they qualify, can they be added to the ballot?

                                I‘ll be the underdog in this competition as I have voted EPs/albums no one else is voting for.

                                        Damn Mariah. Okay so while I'm going to Wikipedia, let's refer to these points:

                                        How about EP’s & mixtapes?
                                        Yes. As long as it contains at least 5 original songs.

                                        Albums that are borderline Pop-R&B?
                                        I'll let you decide by yourself if an album is R&B enough for this countdown. If you think it is then sure go vote for it!

                                        Live albums?
                                        No please.

                                        Also no compilations, remix albums or greatest hits. Christmas albums are fine if they fall under R&B.

                                        For comparison, Bey's Homecoming was not eligible cause it's a live album + has only 1 new studio recording, Drake's Dark Lane Demo Tapes is eligible however, because even though it's a compilation, it's basically a compilation of previously unreleased + leaked songs - so technically, they're 'new' recordings.

                                          Okay so I'm looking at the titles of these Mariah's songs and I'm not familiar with these songs at all so let me know which albums/EPs that have at least 5 original/new recordings/songs that have never been released officially? By 'new' I mean like NEW new not like remixes or Taylor Swift's "Love Story" 2021 version etc.

                                            She's only my girl in "Come Thru" and like 3-4 other songs. Her music is generally bland, sorry.

                                                It's really been a bad year. I can't find five albums on the list that I like.

By 'new' I mean like NEW new not like remixes or Taylor Swift's "Love Story" 2021 version etc.
                                                  Following your criteria, I'd argue The Rarities and the Mariah Carey Merriest Christmas Special Soundtrack qualify and the other EPs do not.
