30 Simply Filthy R&B Songs!

Janet Jackson, Damita Jo

Love hasn’t faded from R&B completely, believe it or not. That said sex is definitely in its trendiest position ever within the genre. Folks, parental advisory labels are popping up everywhere these days and for good reason. Basically, “Darling Nikki” would barely qualify the explicit label these days. Some R&B songs are just simply filthy. Here are 30 simply filthy R&B songs that indulge into the physical as opposed to emotional.


1) Usher, “Good Kisser” (2014)  

“Good Kisser” definitely is “not that innocent.” Think kissing a banana… or don’t.


2) Marsha Ambrosius, “69” (Friends & Lovers, 2014)

The 2 Live Crew sample confirms the song title is accurate: “Face down, a$$ up / that’s the way we like to…” Catch the drift?


3) R. Kelly, “Cookie” (Black Panties, 2013)

Oreos will never taste the same in the hands of R. Kelly. “How many licks does it…” – sorry that’s a Tootsie Roll.


4) Rihanna, “Cockiness (Love It)” (Talk That Talk, 2011) 

Can you say double entendre? The key words that stand out are suck, cockiness, lick, eat, swallow, and come. Rihanna – you so nasty girl!


5) Trey Songz “Love Faces” (Passion, Pain & Pleasure, 2010)

The only thing the song title leaves to the imagination are the facial expressions Trey and his girl make as they do it. Yep, that’s it in a nutshell.


6) Kelly Rowland, “Kisses Down Low” (Talk A Good Game, 2013)

Any time the word “arch” is used in an R&B song, it’s definitely not referring to the foot.


7) R. Kelly featuring Ludacris, “Legs Shakin’” (Black Panties, 2013)

There’s no restless leg syndrome going on here… Need clarification: “I’m goin’ down, down, down / and do it ‘til your legs shakin’.” There it is.


8) Tweet, “Oops Oh My” (Southern Hummingbird. 2002)

Self-love may be a common occurrence, but it’s doesn’t commonly occur via the pop song. Well, ‘cept for Tweet’s “Oops Oh My.”


9) Jeremih, “Birthday Sex” (Jeremih, 2009)

Few would deny this would be a fantastic birthday gift. The even better gift would be if everyday could be your birthday. Think about it.


10) Estelle, “Make Her Say (Beat It Up)” (2014)

Imagination is a thing of he past apparently. Estelle keeps it 100. In fact, she keeps its 150.


11) Janet Jackson, “Sexhibition” (Damita Jo , 2004)

So basically Janet and company combined the words “sex” and “exhibition.” It is what it is, though it seems kind of redundant – particularly at the end when Janet says, “relax, it’s just sex.”


12) Kelly Rowland, “Motivation” (Here I Am, 2011)

Well at least Kelly found a different way to sing about sex – her plan is to “be your motivation.” And to add, “And when we’re done, I don’t wanna feel my legs…” Whoa – “oh lover” is right!


13) Beyoncé, “Rocket” (Beyoncé, 2013)

The opening lines let the listener know they’re in for a ride: “Let me sit this a$$ on you…”


14) Jaheim, “P**** Appreciation Day” (Appreciation Day, 2013)

Talk about being dramatic: “So warm it’s so soft, it’s so tight, it’s the greatest / so I laid in it, played in it / stayed their ‘til daybreak…” Freaky, freaky, freaky!


15) T-Pain, “Put It Down” (Epiphany, 2007)

Wonder what Teddy Pain means when he says, “I’mma stick, stick, stick, stick, ooh?”

16) Chris Brown, “No BS” (F.A.M.E., 2011)

Chris Brown told y’all – he ain’t playing when it comes to pleasure. “No BS!”


17) Janet Jackson, “Strawberry Bounce” (Damita Jo, 2004)

Here’s a hint: it involves a certain part of the female anatomy.


18) The-Dream, “P***y” (IV Play, 2013)

Really, there’s nothing more to say. Generally, The-Dream’s album IV Play was the same way.


19) Akon featuring Snoop Dogg, “I Wanna Love You” (Konvicted, 2006)

The title doesn’t sound bad, but the “love” is all from a physical standpoint and superseded by – ding, ding, ding – you guessed it, the f-word.


20) Ciara, “Ride” (Basic Instinct, 2010)

Ciara is not referencing a car either.


21) Lloyd featuring André 3000 & Lil Wayne, “Dedication to My Ex (Miss That)”  (King of Hearts2011)

Talk about some shh! To give the ‘amended’ version, Lloyd wants his ex back because ‘hers’ is better than his current girl. By the way, Frederic Chopin referred to ‘hers’ as her “little Db major.”


22) R. Kelly “Ignition”/ “Ignition (Remix)” (Chocolate Factory, 2003)

Insert the key into the ignition. Pretty simple.


23) Rihanna, “S&M” (Loud, 2010)

Via Rihanna: “Cause I may be bad, but I’m perfectly good at it / sex in the air, I don’t care, I love the smell of it…chains and whips excite me.” SMH!


24) Beyoncé, “Partition” (Beyoncé, 2013)

“Driver roll up the partition, please / I don’t need you seeing ‘Yonce on her knees…” No further comments.


25) The Isley Bros featuring Lil Kim, “Body Kiss” (Body Kiss, 2003)

Pretty Sure Ron Isley has more in mind than just kissing her lips.


26) Miguel, “Arch & Point” (Kaleidoscope Dream, 2012)

Remember the previous comments about the use of “arch” in R&B? Definitely applies here.


27) The-Dream, “Sex Intelligent” (Love King, 2010)

The man’s a genius at ‘doing the do.’


28) Omarion, “Drop That Heater” (O, 2005)

So much could be said about the effects of dropping a heater – usually creates a fire and burns…


29) Pharrell Williams, “Gush” (G I R L, 2014)

Replace the idea of the ocean gushing with something else, or just enhance that idea with anatomy.


30) Robin Thicke featuring Pharrell Williams & T.I., “Blurred Lines” (Blurred Lines, 2013)

This had to make the list. All the controversy – this one’s a no-brainer. Furthermore, there are nude models in the vid, not to mention Thicke suggests, “I know you want it.” What exactly is it that she wants?
