Agreed. And both are totally pretty and lovely, but very sameyy
LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM
She's from Denmark, but moved to London. It's this amazing blend of soul and R&B and jazz, and it's just the most perfect mix, backed by a gorgeous voice. Highly recommend you all check it out
New Ro James
The Hip Hop thread has started this thing where a member open threads for classic albums from the 80s, 90s and 00s. I’ve been thinking we could do the same. If others here think it would work, I would be happy to do it.
Thought I’d replied yesterday but guess I just typed up a response and never posted. Anyway, I’m down. My first request is Mama’s Gun by Erykah Badu, released in 2000- one of my favorite r&b albums of all time.
That is a good one. I’ve been thinking the best one to start with would be ‘What’s The 411?’. What do you think?
Great choice. Early Mary J. Blige is that shit I do like.

This is nice, although there are way too many goddamn interludes
This is beautiful
I want to point out that the indie rock leaning press (which is most of the music press that isn’t specifically hip hop/R&B media) as well as their (theoretical) readership, including often people on this board (not this thread), only seem to celebrate or even notice R&B artists when they make their music “more pop department friendly”. The more it sounds like generic pop music produced by some Swedish guy, the better. It’s not just the record labels that are to blame.
In the 00s, R&B artists had huge albums and hist without having to do that, whereas now the idea of albums like Confessions or The Emancipation of Mini becoming huge mainstream successes that outsell most other albums across all genres feels almost impossible.
Grooves for dayzz
Highly recommend the new SAULT album.
SAULT - Untitled (Black is) (June 19, 2020) • forum.chorus.fm
That would be cool, honestly. Lately, I've been finding it hard to stay engaged in this place outside of the big releases and the genre threads, so that would be a refreshing feature.
edit: Okay I should have caught up before writing this. Checking out those new threads in a bit
Second one is up now
R&B Classics: Usher - Confessions • forum.chorus.fm
Not sure if this has been posted already but Justine Skye’s new album is pretty good
A fun little r&b album from sectiontoo
