2009 Best in R&B, Hip-Hop and Dance

Filed under: Chat 'bout,Flashback,New Music — Felicia @ 12:50 pm

Musically speaking this year had some pretty good albums and loads of disappointments. I for one was looking forward to a banger from Amerie, but her album In Love & War seemed to slip the radar. So did R. Kelly’s Untitled for reasons we won’t discuss. Keri Hilson had a pretty good year with In A Perfect World… and Trey Songz finally got his due diligence with Ready. Of all the great R&B singles that were released, breakout artist Melanie Fiona still ranks pretty high on my list of favorites with “It Kills Me”.

In the Hip-Hop sector Jay-Z of course still holds the top spot with a great album from start to finish with The Blueprint 3 and Drake and his bevy of mistakes had a really great breakout year also. My Hip-Hop crown goes to Juelz Santana for “Back To The Crib”. I can’t get this song out of my head. The song was released earlier this month and features Chris Brown.  I’m sure we can expect to hear more from Juelz at the top of 2010.

I really got back into Dance/House music again this year with the help of David Guetta. The DJ from France has been around for a while now, but the release of his album One Love on Astralwerks/Gumprod received a lot of play here in the States with “When Love Takes Over” and my jam “Sexy Bitch”. The latter takes the cake here.
