‘Charlene’ is a favorable album that won’t blow anyone away, but should appeal to more traditional R&B fans. Continue reading Tweet Makes A Soulful Return After 11-Year Hiatus On ‘Charlene’

‘Stone Love’: Underrated Album and Artist


“My sunshine has come / and I’m all cried out / and there’s no more rain in this cloud.” Ah, the soulful, sultry pipes of Angie Stone were such a lift and a factor in the now deceased neo-soul movement within R&B. Angie Stone exemplified the sub-genre that sought to keep soul alive and well within contemporary R&B. Some might argue that contemporary R&B and … Continue reading ‘Stone Love’: Underrated Album and Artist

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?”
