Not so ridiculous when you compare the 60's 70's 80's and partially the 90's to now. I had a stacked collection and multiple playlists of my favorite artists always on hand. Now it's difficult to name a few good ones... and a lot of the new music sounds more like hip hop mixes than traditional soul and r&b ballads.

Mary J Blige
Alicia Keys
John Legend
Raphael Saadiq
Aaliyah - still breaks my heart(2001)
Joss Stone
Whitney Houston (gone but not forgotten)
Ashanti
Faith Evans
MAXWELL
Erykah Badu
Carl Thomas
Luther Vandross had a few hits before he passed in 2005
R Kelly has got a lot of soul (but flip flops back and forth between hip hop and soul and r&B)
Usher - used to be r&B - I don't what the hell he is doing anymore!
Mariah Carey - I hope she has a few more left in her tank. A hell of a songwriter when she her soul juice!


Rhianna/Chris Brown are pop/hiphop artists NOT soul/r&B artists

Bumping this without much to comment, I'm afraid.

Somebody once gave me a Joss Stone cd, which I played once, but lost interest in before it finished. ( PM please if anyone wants to buy a good-as-new JS cd.)

Mentioned twice but Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are very authentic sounding classic R&B. They're easily my favorite R&B of the noughties. Also, if last year counts, I discovered an awesome recording by Childish Gambino called Awaken My Love. If I get a chance, I'll post some videos later after I finish working on my present project (can't do YouTube and Spotify at the same time )

Their best stuff didn't come out until early this decade, but THEESatisfaction started off in the oughts so I'll drop them in here. Smooth fresh and unlike any other neo-soul I've heard.

Here we go.


Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings





Childish Gambino (December 2016). They say it's rap but this is singing, isn't it?

Doesn't really matter but noughties = 2000-2009

I know, but I stumbled on Gambino when I was doing my twenty-five project (almost done finally). Sharon Jones is definitely noughties, however, and she's the greatest R&B artist since Aretha.
