          • I enjoyed all the albums in the Top 20. I didn't listen to Shea Butter Baby or Urgh, those feels again, might have to check them out.

            Blood Orange barely missed my list.

                      • There goes my #1 BANKS! So happy you guys liked that album. It was my favourite of the year and it’s still fresh af to me. Such a great compilation of many different sounds. Absolutely LOVED it!

                        Kehlani‘s record was good, Night Like This being one of THE most played songs from the past year.

                        • Banks did her things with III. Her best and my favorite project of hers. She was my #8

                          While We Wait was super cute and an amazing project to hold fans over while she was preggo. RPG and Nunya >>>>>>>

                          Bubba was cute, but I wish he had some more slow/mid tempo cuts. Those are my favorite productions of his. He let the geh out on this album.

                            Preach!!

                            I am also pleasantly surprised that her other two records ranked pretty damn well in this competition.

                            • GoldLink's album is an absolute banger. Glad it made the top 20 since it's not exactly Ukmix' favourite genre. Ciara's alberm was trash. A few highlights but too many fillers. Loved Free Spirit and While We Wait, Nights Like This is one of the best tracks of the year for me. Need to check out the rest, all have been on my list tbh. I've been bopping to Gimme by Banks to nearly a year but forgot to vote for her

                                  However, that Barefoot song is rather good.

                                  • ^He did "Forward" on Beyonce's Lemonade. He's rather indie/alternative and I'm happy that he's finally made the top 10 considering how lowkey he is even though I'm not really a fan.

                                    However, I do looooove "Barefoot In The Park". I think I'm starting to have a crush on Rosalia, she's so gorgeous!

                                        • Playing Games and Like It became easily my favorite songs from this record.

                                          It‘s a solid debut. However it could have been much stronger with a little more variety in production imo.

                                          • Fever is pretty good. It's definitely better than the album she just put out yesterday.

                                            I really love "Selah" on Jesus Is King.

                                            7 EP has "Old Town Road" and "Rodeo" which makes it pretty good for me.

                                            • "Over It" was my #2. Neck and Neck with my #1. I loved this album and has been in heavy rotation since release. R&B that vibed through the entire album. Although I do miss some of the other variety of her project prior, Londononthetrack did a good job considering he's typically a hip hop producer.

                                              • Random, but am I the only one who thinks that Summer Walker always looks different every time? She's a gorgeous woman, but I saw the album cover, then I saw her speech when she received the newcomer award, I saw some of her music videos and I swear they all look like different persons.

                                                • I absolutely adore Assume Form. It's the first James Blake album I heard in full, and I did not expect such a high quality of songwriting and production. My #4.

                                                  I enjoyed Summer Walker's album a lot, especially Playing Games and Come Thru, but I feel that she's too dependent on her boyfriend (the album is filled with London tags), and her performances have been lifeless. Her recent comments on coronavirus annoyed me too. Regardless, I ranked the album at #8.
