There's plenty of songs I remember hearing from when I was younger. But I swear Pebbles take me back so good, just as much as people like Michael Jackson, Janet, and other artists who've had tons of hits.

These 2 songs are fuckin' amazing & Pebbles was so fine back then and still is. I swear I'm in love with her ass now.

Pebbles was fine! I should probably look into more songs from her. Just took a look and I have "Always" and "Love Makes Things Happen" featuring Babyface on my playlist.

I know LL sampled it in the 90s, others probably have too. I love 80s synth beats and rhythms.
Wow I haven't heard that song since I was a kid! Still dope today.

Only dip into this thread once in a while but enjoy the hell out of it when I do.
Going way the fuck back for a minute to 1963, Sam Cooke might be just about my favourite singer of the soul giants and his Live at the Harlem Square Club might be the best live album of any genre.
Love how this was likely recorded with one or two old mics and captures the ambiance perfectly, if you a do live album today you'd have everyone plugged right into pro-tools, youd probably clean it up later and it still would sound nowhere near as organic and amazing as this.



love when this one kicks in

One of the most beautiful voices and talented vocalists ever - Minnie Riperton

love Minnie Ripperton, got into her from hearing this track on the Jackie Brown soundtrack, never hear her get talked about much



this track might be my fave of hers



edit- come to think of it I got into a lot of great soul and funk tracks from the Jackie Brown s/t
Bobby Womack - across 110th st
Brothers Johnson -strawberry letter 22 (cover)
Rany Crawford - street life
and Pam Griers own -long time woman

Jackie Brown soundtrack did feature some quality stuff. I was just listening to that Brother's Johnson cut on my iPhone the other day. Some Bobby Womack too - "If You Think You're Lonely Now."

Cancer took Minnie away too soon. Not too often you find pop or even R&B/soul singers with such vocal technique and precision like a Minnie Riperton or another one of my favorites Mariah Carey who is a classically trained singer.

Default Modern R&B Thread

We have the classic R&B thread so I thought I'd create one for more modern R&B, say early noughties onwards e.g. Avant, Chris Brown, Tyrese, Mario, Ne-Yo, Jagged Edge, Usher etc.

Just my opinion but [b]NO Dance/Pop[b] that is categorised as RnB when its not a slow jam! I don't class some of Frank Ocean, The Weeknd as RnB but you can try change my view if you dare

One of Ne-Yo's better songs more recently:



One of the best R&B songs in recent years:



Underrated song by a hit-maker featuring Cole:

Thought about making this a more general title the other day. Since you made this thread I just merged them both.
Rule number 1 is don't post anything Trey Songz related.

The Weeknd is definitely R&B.

The Weeknd & Miguel are the only good R&B acts out nowadays.
