    I ain't taking it back to All For One or any of that shit, talking about currently, I've been digging Raheem Devaughn, some Jamie Foxx, & John Legend.

    Anyone know wtf happened to Case & T.Q.?

    the major players (not necessarily who are putting out the best music) are Trey Songz, Ne-Yo, Alicia Keys, Beyonce - though I consider her full-fledged pop now

    For the life of me, I just find Ne-Yo, Trey Songz & especially Beyonce way too poppy...

    Alicia Keys I haven't followed for a while but I used to dig a couple of her songs.


    Hot Shyt, who is your 'go to' in R&B?

    Case & TQ still come out with low key albums here and there.

    Raheem and Jamie Foxx are them dudes as far as R&B now.

    "Major Players" would be like Chris Brown, Usher, ect.

    If you haven't already, check for Novel (the R&B singer / rapper that does music with Joell Ortiz).

    Jamie Fox has a dope voice, like the guy but man his performance on Idol with Will i am was cringy/BAD

    "she worked the STANK outta that song"

    I know its not brand new, (she doesnt get much attention over here), that performance made me want run to town and BUY her album
    astonishing vocal, (proper Jamaican saying is " love you like cooked food" or even "I love you more than salt fish & ackee", so the title got an extra grin from me)

    Anthony David just dropped a pretty good album.. Cee-lo's album was great. I can post a bunch of songs but as far as whole albums I aint impressed by much of whats been put out lately.

    Does R&B still exist?

    The media calls it "urban contemporary" these days.

    R&B is like hip hop, so evolved it's hard to recognize now, but I'm still thinking PM Dawn is the shizznit! :funny:
