    Got the sudden urge for some rhythm and blues right now.

    My personal top ten in no particular order.

    Usher- Confessions
    Miguel- Kaleidoscope Dream
    Sisqo- Unleash The Dragon
    R Kelly- TP 2000
    Boyz 2 Men- II
    Justin Timberlake- Justified (if that counts)
    D'Angelo- Brown Sugar (or Vodoo)
    Janet Jackson- Velvet Rope
    Trey Songz- Ready
    Chris Brown- Fame

    I was really tempting to put Miseducation on here, but i havent really dove into it enough.

    I know i missed a fuckton of them, so any other recommendations are cool.

    only just recently listening to D’Angelo, cant believe how long I’ve missed out. Voodoo is a masterpiece.

    Not by any means an R&B expert but The Dream’s first 2 albums were incredible. More recently also enjoyed Bryson Tiller’s Trapsoul

    Was also thinking about some of Tank's albums or maybe even Thriller.

    Dont miss out on Black Messiah too.

    Still havent listened to Black Messiah yet. I also need to check out those Erykah Badu albums Joel mentioned

    Also I'm sure you've already listened but The Weeknd - Trilogy is definitely up there.

    Ooooo baby, you're in for a treat! Let me know how you feel about those albums once you get around to them. Black Messiah is possibly my favourite D'Angelo album and Erykah Badu's albums are absolutely flawless. :rejoice:

    Both 6lack albums are amazing.

    But it sounds like OP wants the more traditional r&b sound. 6lack is more like a mix of r&b and rap.

    Edit: Don’t sleep on the song Cutting Ties either. d--- crime it wasn’t included on East Atlanta Love Letter.

    Vol. 1 is my favourite. She's neo-soul more so than RnB but god she's good. Came up during Soulquarians-era.

    Every D'Angelo album is so good. Brown Sugar & Black Messiah are masterpieces!
