The Best R&B Ever

Introduction to the Best R&B Ever

 

The Best R&B Ever is R&B Archives’ chart of the best 100 songs in R&B from the 1950s to the present. It is an extension to our original conversation to determine the best decade of R&B. The best r&b ever became necessary when we realized that our conversation did not represent enough people from each age group. We want to determine the best decade with fairness and accuracy. Collecting the opinions of R&B fans in every age group is the only way for us to be fair, impartial, and accurate. Also, that is only possible if each decade is represented by its best artists, albums, and songs.

 

Goals of the Best R&B Ever Chart

The primary goal of this chart is to equitably represent R&B artists, albums, and songs. The secondary goal is to collect the opinions of R&B fans, while promoting the chart to fans of each decade. Once each decade is represented, we have a better chance of reaching equal amounts of fans for each. In addition to these two goals, we are amassing the largest collection of R&B music from the 1950s to the present.
