Over the last year, we’ve gotten taken back to our past many times. From the return of jelly shoes, Jodeci, and thankfully, the beautiful Tamia, we’ve been able to feel more than just a bit of nostalgia these days.

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!
