      I haven't even opened the voting yet let alone deciding the deadline.

      Y'all still have time till around Christmas to review some of your favorite albums before the voting opens.

          I'd say yes. But at the end of the day, as been discussed in the previous page, you vote for what you think fit in the genre. I don't wanna make limitations whatsoever regarding what is Urban and what is not, cause honestly it is confusing to me as well. I'll post the complete rules later.

                    Updated the list. Geez, y'all seem to be more excited than I am. Appreciate the love though.

                    I will be properly updating the rules over this weekend, as for now here's what y'all can prepare:
                    - Any Urban/R&B albums released between Jan 1 to Dec 31, 2019 are eligible.
                    - You decide yourself which albums belong to the Urban/R&B category, I trust your ears.
                    - Min. 5, max. 15 albums, rank it from #1 (favorite).
                    - EPs, mixtapes are good as long as they contain min. 5 original tracks.
                    - Live albums are a no.

                    I'd say wait until next week's Friday to vote just in case we have last-minute releases.

                        Just added both.

                        For new voters, the list on the first page is obviously not perfect as I don't have the ability to detect every R&B/Urban release in 2019 so if you want me to add some albums on the list just leave it in the comment and I'll add them eventually.

                          I just realized that I was planning to do Urban/R&B AOTY 2012 sometimes this year but I kept on forgetting. I guess we're gonna do this one first, and then 2012 right after, and then Albums of the Decade.

                              Added her cause I guess she's somehow still R&B-related as an artist but that one particular album, I honestly don't hear it. It sounds very Dua Lipa-ish to me. But to each their own.

                                Thanks @abi!

                                I‘d also suggest the following records to be added to the list:

                                - Ama Lou: Ama, who?
                                - FKA Twigs: Magdalene
                                - Mereba: The Jungle Is the Only Way Out

                                  ^Added. Thanks y'all for being patient. There's still a possibility that Rih is releasing before the year ends. I don't wanna repeat the 2013 tragedy anymore.

                                      RiRi disappointed us all. I think she should be banned from this contest for like 5 years.

                                              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?

                                              No please.
