Welcome to a new UKMIX countdown - R&B songs of the 2000s. In this countdown, we will vote for our favourite R&B songs released in a decade which saw the genre completely dominate the first few years but be almost irrelevant by the end of it. There were huge album sellers from Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys and Usher, new releases from 80s and 90s acts, such as Mary J. Blige, Janet Jackson and Beyonce, the emergence of new stars like Ashanti, Ciara and Chris Brown, and the last releases from Whitney Houston, Aaliyah and Michael Jackson.

I will post lists of some of the biggest songs of the decade in this thread to remind y'all of what you can vote for. Remember that this is an R&B countdown, not rap and hip-hop.

RULES:

- Send me a PM of your favourite R&B songs of the decade (minimum 20, maximum 50)
- The song had to be released from 1/1/00-31/12/09. If the song is from a 90s album, but was released in the 2000s, then it is eligible.
- A limit of 5 songs per artist in your votes
- Please only vote for singles. No album tracks.
- Deadline: 12th February

Instead of listing all the big songs (which would take forever), I'll just list the most popular artists who released music that decade, as well as lesser known artists and their songs.

By the way, I think we could refer to this countdown of R&B Albums of the Decade in case we forgot some names. :P

Also some other list that might help:

Wait, I remember we already had UKMIX Urban Songs of the 00's (including Hip-Hop)

Let's see how much our taste has changed. I have a feeling the top two will remain the same though. :lol:

biscuits, do you think it's better to move this to Urban/R&B section? I mean, there are two on-going countdowns as well there at the moment. So maybe it will gain more attention?
