that list is legit (fraxxx's one too), hard to choose 10 songs

Mary J. Blidge - U Remind Me
SWV - I'm So Into You (Teddy Riley Remix)
Jodeci - Forever My Lady
Mint Condition - That's the way it's goin' down
Alfonzo Hunter & Erick Sermon - Just the way playas play
Horace Brown & Mary J. Blidge - How Can We Stop
Reel Tight - I Lied
R. Kelly - Sex Me Part. II
Keith Sweat - I'm Not Ready (remix)
Aaliyah - Age Ain't Nothing But A Number

i could have included some songs by Guy & Aaron Hall (my favorites)Tony Toni Tone, Menagerie, TQ, D'Angelo, DRS, Maxwell, Eric Benet, Montell Jordan, YNV, B-Rezell, Danny Boy, Ginuwine, Brian MC Knight, etc.

I didn't include Nate Dogg cause to me he fully belongs to the rap game.

Fraxxx you're right about D'Angelo being a Neo Soul artist, and I had this in mind when I mentioned him, to me, Neo Soul is a sub genre of R&B really, if falls under the R&B umbrella just like New Jack Swing does too.

My Second List (or my alternate list) would look like this  :

J. Little (Rude Boys) - Puttin It Down
Rude Boys - Tell Me What You Like
Po Broke N Lonely - No Money No Honey
Aaron Hall - Don't Be Afriad (Sex You Down Some More version)
Johnny Gill - Lady Dujour
Blackstreet - Booti Call
LeVert - Good Old Days
LSG - Your Body
Janet Jackson - We Go Deep (monster Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis track, sounds like a Quik beat)
Joe - If Loving You is Wrong (I could include his first album altogether)

Good to see threadstarter given props to Jodeci.  Apparently from my KC and JoJo appreciation thread other people at the forum seem to think the likes of Kieth Sweat and even Lucy Pearl are more important than the likes of Jodeci.

Here's my top 10 off the dome

1.  "All My Life"  KC and JoJo
2.  "Last Night's Letter"  KC and JoJo
3.  "Now and Forever"  KC and JoJo
4.  "If You Think Your Lonely Now"  - KC of Jodeci
5.  "Anytime" - Brian McKnight
6.  "Why I Love You So Much" - Monica
7.  "Before You Walk Out My Life"  - Monica
8.  "I Belong To You"  Rome
9.  "I'm Ready"  - Tevin Campbell
10.  "Breathe Again"  Toni Braxton

That was the first time Dre resurfaced on TV after leaving Death Row.  I still remember the first time I saw that video.  I was expecting BIG THANGS from Dre after he went to go form Aftermath.  He first came with "East Coast/West Coast Killaz" and still consider that to be the most timely and under-rated rap song/video of all-time.  Somehow the album ended up falling short of expectations and it would be a few years before Aftermath would really blow up.

Might as well.

1. 112 - Only You
2. Shai - If I Ever Fall In Love
3. K-Ci and JoJo - All My Life
4. Boyz II Men - End of the Road
5. Aaliyah - At Your Best (You Are Loved)
6. Bell Biv DeVoe - Poison
7. Monica - Angle of Mine
8. Jon B. - Pretty Girl
9. SWV - Weak
10. Whitney Houston - I Have Nothing

Bonus: Mariah Carey - Fantasy, Blackstreet - Before I Let You Go, Color Me Badd - I Adore Mi Amore.

Writing this list gave me flash backs of old school TDK tapes.

You can create a top 10 on just K-Ci and Jo Jo alone, or Boyz II Men. Damn, R&B has fallen off HARD.

Didn't include any D'Angelo or Erykah Badu since that Neo-Soul sound is something I'd make a seperate for.


I did the same thing. I was tempted to. I made my wife and R&B playlist and it is mainly Neo-Soul. That's her stuff. I'm more of a traditional R&B myself. Still, I got love for the Neo-Soul movement and all the great music it produced.

Don't get me wrong, I love some Neo Soul albums. D'Angelo, Erykah Badu and of course Lauryn Hill dropped some of the altogether best Neo Soul/RnB albums of that time It's just not the sound I initially think of since I grew up on that New Jack Swing.

i didn't say Jodeci homie, just K-Ci & Jojo, here you go twisting my words, and I didn't say Lucy Pearl was more important than Jodeci wtf lol I just cited Lucy Pearl among the countless quality projects Raphael Saadiq has helmed. good list btw, albeit a bit repetitive. jodeci is one of my very favorite rnb groups, I just happen to like other artists outside of them. i've been playing their first album in my car over the past week.

that's true and that's why I did not include songs of a same artist twice in my lists, but when I said "forever my lady" I might as well have picked any Jodeci song, same for R. Kelly, dude has just too many slaps

Tony Toni Tone - Fun
Jodeci - Get On Up
D'angelo - Lady
Erykah Badu - Appletree
Brandy - I wanna be down
Aaliyah - Heartbroken
Babyface - For The Cool In You

Tried to not include any1 already mentioned

Think it's problematic to seperate Neo Soul etc, from R&B, but I'll try. So I left out the greats like Maxwell and Will Downing, Angie Stone etc pp

anyway this might look pretty random now

johnny gill - my,my,my
shola ama - you might need somebody
joe - all the things
dru hill - tell me
tony rich project- hey blue
eric benet - spend my time with you
kevon edmonds feat. babyface - a girl like you
case - more to love
lalah hathaway - heaven knows
Montell Jordan - It's over

Truth be told I never listened to US R&B back in the 90's, I guess the younger me didn't appreciate the slower pacing or something (actually I still can't get into American 90's RnB, just not my cup of tea I guess). Anyway almost all of the few RnB songs (if you can call them that) I listened to were from Japan (on a sidenote, I can't find any of the songs I wanted to embed on YouTube so I was stuck with cover versions/the same artist's newer/older work to serve as placeholders, then again I doubt any of you will give a fuck).

 8) classic song. G-Funk had a strong influence on mainstream urban music in France back in the mid-90's.

K-Mel, the rapper on the song, released an album in 2001 with collaborations with Nate Dogg and one with Warren G lol (a remix of I Want It All). He evens appears in the Game Don't Wait Remix video for like one second lmao.
