  • UKMIX Urban/R&B Album of the Year 2019 (#2 & #1)



    What is this countdown?
    It's the Urban/R&B Album of The Year 2019. You guys vote for your favorite records then I will count them down until #1.

    Rules
    1. Listen to your favorite R&B/Urban albums of the year 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/Trap. 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, 2019 to December 31, 2019.
    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 January 20, 2020 (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/R&B and released between January 1 - December 31.

    Can I vote for non-English albums that belong to Urban/R&B, 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.

    Live albums?
    No please.

            So hyped for this! Banks, Doja Cat, Tinashe & Mabel probably had the most replay value this year.

                    Hmmm that's weird. I used to always use tinypic.com to upload pics but I just found out yesterday that now they're not free anymore so I came across this random site I googled and I guess it doesn't work for everyone.

                      I posted a list of R&B/Urban and R&B/Urban-related albums released in 2019 on the second post for your recommendations.

                      Notice I'm gonna emphasize the "R&B/Urban-related" part since some of these albums might not belong to R&B/Urban but I personally haven't heard them yet so I'm still yet to decide which are in and which are out. Also before anybody coming for me, I did put that Ed Sheeran's album there for now just because it features LOADS of R&B & Hip-Hop artists. I've heard the album once and I genuinely forgot how it sounds like so again, it might be in, it might be not. We'll see.

                      Also knowing Rihanna might be releasing at the very end of this month, the voting period will probably start in January.

                          Also let me know if you want some more albums to be added on that list. My list for this year is extremely short!

                            Hmmmmm I would say no. I don't know, I just don't think it's fair for a live album full of already well-known hits to compete.

                            What y'all think?

                              Yeah I wouldn’t like a ”greatest hits live” on the list either tbh.

                                  Doja Cats's album charted on Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop so yes. Idk about Banks but she was always eligible with her previous records as far as I could remember.

                                  Maybe at the end of the day, the voters should just determine themselves which are Urban enough and which are not? We don't have genre sections anymore on UKMIX so it's hard to categorize some of these albums. What do you guys think?

                                    Doja Cat seems eligible, BANKS imo is more pop, but many genres merge so it is not impossible to see a connection with urban. I'd say you leave it open for voters to nominate. robably albums that are "less" urban will probably end up with just a couple of votes.

                                    I'll def take part, and the banner is amazing, great job as usual!

                                      [MENTION=17768]abi[/MENTION] off the top of my head I would also add Chance The Rapper, YBN Cordae and Stormzy.

                                          I still have a feeling The Weekdy & Fenty Beauty's owner will release an album before the end of the year so I'd say wait until January.
