So much great RnB, so litle time. I listen to a TON of artist/albums and I'm always looking to find great singers/songs. I don't care how old or new it is, I just like to hear great music. I think many of the regulars here feel the same way.
I was hoping we could use this topic as a way to let others know what artists/songs/albums you've been listening to and enjoying lately. It may be a way to recommend/introduce others here to great artists/songs that you may have never heard before. Luckily, YouTube exists so it shouldn't be hard to find the songs and listen yourself and give feedback.
I don't know if this topic will be successful or not but I'll give it a shot and post here at least weekly or so.

Alright, so I'll get it started.
Really been listening to Riff's "To Whom It May Concern" (1993) album A LOT lately for some reason. I mean, I can't really find a bad song on there and I feel like Riff's harmonies was one of the most polished I've heard from the 90's although I think only Anthony Fuller's voice had solo potential. It's a shame they didn't have a ton of success. Songs I'm really loving the most from this album are "Don't Leave", "Waiting", and "Don't Go Nowhere". Tell me what you guys think of these.
Jesse Campbell (not Jesse Powell) is another guy I've known about for a long time but only recently started listening. If you haven't heard his song "When You Cry" and "After The Rain", you should go check it out. This guy could flat out sing! Unfortunately, he went gospel after his first album but I just found out that he participated on "The Voice" last season and got pretty far I believe.

I've been listening to SWV a lot the past few weeks. Their new album is awesome. "Keep You Home" is my favorite song.
Caron Wheeler has also been in heavy rotation.
That's about it for right now.

I know this is more hip hop than R&B but I've been obsessed with the song "Say No Go" by De La Soul recently. It's one of the best anti-drug songs ever and plus I love how it has no cuss words. You don't need those to make a powerful point. And it samples two songs I love, I Can't Go for That by Hall & Oates and Best of My Love by the Emotions. It's a goood song.

Been jammin' that new Dwele album "Greater Than One" lately. This is album is a breath of fresh air compared to mainstream RnB at the moment. I'm really feeling that "Love Triangle" amongst my favorites on this album.
Also lately been listening to a lot of Men Of Vizion, specifically their 2nd album "MOV". The latter half of the album is on repeat for me right now.

Houston- "it's already written"
Letoya- "lady love"
Stevie Wonder- any album by him is worth listening
