ThisisRnB Presents: The Top 20 R&B Albums of 2014

Top 20 R&B Albums of 2014

Better late than never right?? 2014 may be over and done, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bask in it a bit more. While the year brought about many disappointments and frustrations, it also brought with it a few blessings in the form of R&B.

Whether you were waiting on your favorite artist to drop another album, or you were introduced to the sounds of someone different, there’s no denying the talent that moved through our ears and speakers last year. From Mary J. Blige’s commendable trip across the pond to K. Michelle’s anticipated sophomore effort to Chris Brown yet again finding favor in the hearts of many for his music, some damn good audible treats surfaced during 2014.

Although the above may be true, unfortunately some artists didn’t receive the shine that they deserved for their obviously noted underrated albums. That however, has never stopped us from giving them their well-deserved props and doing our part to help everyone discover their greatness.

So, even if you preferred to be “Dancing In The Dark” over getting “2 On,” there’s no way that anyone can say that this past year didn’t help with moving R&B back to the top of the charts! Gone are the days of R&B being looked at as “tarnished,” “washed,” or “unappreciated,” because there were truly some classic and timeless pieces of art dropped throughout last year.

So, without further adieu, give yourself one more look back with “The 20 Best R&B Albums of 2014″ below!

August Alsina Talks Health Scare, Today’s R&B, Learning from Usher & More on ‘The Breakfast Club’ & ‘Ebro In The Morning’


August Alsina gave his first interviews following his health scare, after collapsing on stage in New York, and have multiple seizures in the hospital, which lead to him being put in an induced coma for 3 days.  The R&B star visited both ‘The Breakfast Club’ on Power 105.1 and ‘Ebro In The Morning’ on Hot 97, while he was in town to perform with Usher at Madison Square Garden on “The UR Experience” tour.

Starting his chat with ‘The Breakfast Club’ he spoke about the hook-up app Tinder, which he agrees is only meant for 1 thing, and no one should be looking for relationships on there. Moving forward he opened up about his last performance in NYC and the causes for his collapse. He confirmed it was only health issues due to dehydration and some malnutrition because he wasn’t eating well, and not any type of drug use. He revealed that during his coma he saw his brother (who passed away in 2010) and he confirmed to him that he was doing what he is supposed to be doing and now he has to go do it better.

He also explained his views on today’s relationships and certain females and how that gets reflected in today’s R&B music. “No, I’m not singing ‘ohh I want to love you baby,’ no no I don’t [love you],” he said. Continuing on August explained that his music will reflect when he is actually in love. “To be a lover in such a unlovin place, you just got to go with the flow, until you find what it is.”

In addition to also talking about the heath scare on Hot 97 he spoke about what he learned from the experience and what he’s been learning from being around Usher on the new tour. He also revealed that he is working on new music with Nicki Minaj.
