    • Loose I mean I just remember that one of my faves is Chris Brown so I really shouldn't have asked that.

            • I don't have anything nice to say about Ed, so that says it all. I tried Jamila's album twice and both of the times I couldn't wait for it to be over. I don't like her voice and the music is kind of annoying to me also.

                        • There goes my first vote. African Giant really was a great album. Glad it made it into Top 50 since it's probably not what most of Ukmix cares for

                            Raphael Saadiq is a neat producer. Apart from him I have never ever listened to any of the other musicians.

                              This year we have lots of less popular acts charting. Maybe having less voters is not a bad thing after all.

                              I know BJ the Chicago Kid because he is featured on one of Kehlani's albums. Did a quick listen to his album and it's pretty nice actually. Very old school R&B with lots of Soul & Hip-Hop influences here and there.

                              As for Burna Boy, I recognize him from of course Bey's The Lion King project. Checked out some of his songs but I didn't quite enjoy them yet. Not as much as I enjoyed "Ja Ara E" at least.

                              • I was browsing through Saadiq‘s Jimmy Lee the other day.

                                I like the fact he‘s drawing inspiration from a drug addict and family member. This World Is Drunk is a vibe. King Fall is another great track.

                                        • Yay for Yuna. Didn't vote for it, not a big fan of the album either but it's always nice to see Asian acts thriving! "Black Marquee" was cute though.

                                          Not a big fan of Daniel Caesar's latest effort either, but it wasn't a bad album. I really like "CYANIDE". Surprised his previous album didn't chart though considering how popular "Best Part" was (at least in where I live).

                                          Chance deserved to flop based on the album artwork alone. Also what was the controversy surrounding the album's release? Was it because he was mad at all the not-so-positive reviews?

                                            • I should have been checking out YUNA a long time ago but I completely forgot.

                                              Edit: She absolutely deserves to appear in this countdown. Forevermore and Blank Marquee are great atmospheric songs. JSparksFan proved taste again.

                                                • I have to be honest.. I didn't check out the J.Cole joint..as most people (like we saw in 2018 for a certain couple) I'm not really here for them

                                                  Chance was such a disappointment for me I didn't want to vote for him despite liking some tracks on the album. The Coloring Book was great and is one of my decade favrorites, this was trash compared to it.
