Elijah Blake made an amazing album. Just imagine if Justin Timberlake or Drake sang something like Technicolor or 11:59.

I don't know the other two

Elijah Blake is one of the best singer-songwriters in the genre. Black and Blue is truly outstanding.

The Chris Brown album was a lot better than his last but it should have been condensed into a shorter project.

I surely forgot to vote for Big Sean. I enjoyed that album, but I guess I enjoyed other albums more since I forgot to vote for him :lol:

He would’ve gotten another vote if I remembered. Some albums got a pity vote from me

Big Sean's album is so underrated! I actually think it's better than Kendrick's.
Aretha Franklin was an angel. Her voice helped lift our spirits and at times gave us the soundtrack to cope with our pain.
