Favorite 80's artist: Michael Jackson; Prince
Favorite 80's group: I can't say I have a #1 favorite group I love that was an "80s group." There are plenty I like. I can name more for 60s/70s/90s
Favorite 90's artist: Mariah Carey; R. Kelly
Favorite 90's group: TLC; Dru Hill
Overall favorite artist of all time: I can't name just one - JB, MJ, or Mariah.
Yeah that's why I said it was a little difficult for me too choose. All the R&B I had from the 80's was of artists who's best music was in the 70's or 90's.
I was gonna put Michael for artist but figured he really wasn't R&B.
