ThisisRnB Presents: The 20 Best R&B Albums of 2016

#Blessings 2016, we out!

Across the board it’s been a very interesting year for music, and R&B played a major role in adding unique projects to 2016. From our perspective–over the past couple of years–there appears to be a stronger push to return certain elements of traditional R&B to the mainstream public, even coming from the new generations. However, the genre is still evolving, continuing to grow and change, and creative progression is what we want to see.

What we heard this year, is a vast variety of R&B sounds, styles, and inspirations across many releases; from new breakout voices to mainstream megastars to long overdue comebacks from some of our most beloved singers. 2016 was the year for it all, whether you love buttery smooth soul, gritty blues, sinfully dark seduction, dance and sing-along anthems, retro funk and anything in-between, there was something for every taste in the many albums that were released this year.

Now, instead of offering our critical album rankings this year, we’ve taken a different approach to the list, and not placed the albums in number order, but just alphabetical. So click below to check out our list of The 20 Best R&B Albums of 2016, and also check out the results of our Readers’ Choice Poll on the last page as well!
