Hmmm let's see...I'll try to limit the list to one song per artist.

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

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.

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.

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.

You can create a top 10 on just K-Ci and Jo Jo alone, or Boyz II Men.

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

a NJS song I forgot to include that i've always loved  8) <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/-Rj3ZAPlBtE" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/-Rj3ZAPlBtE</a>

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).

Edit: I found the ONE US RnB song I was able to enjoy until Usher started screaming "Yeah!" at everybody...

 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.

That was one of the bangers from back when Xzibit, Snoop and Dre were leading a resurgence of the West
*******

"I will make records as big or bigger than Death Row".   -Dre, Source 1996

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

Dre -  Source 1996 cover

"Eminem will be bigger than Michael Jackson as long as he doesn't change."

-Dre, Rolling Stones mag 1999 Em cover
