ThisisRnB Presents: The Top 20 R&B Albums of 2014


Rochelle Jordan 1021

#17. Rochelle Jordan – 1021

There’s always that one artist that you instantly connect with based off of their music and last year, it was definitely Rochelle Jordan. Delivering her surprise album 1 0 2 1, the Canadian songstress held nothing back as she officially introduced herself to the world.

Serving as her debut LP, the indie singer/songwriter took her own lane when creating and supplying this album for R&B lovers everywhere. Lead by her IamSu! assisted single, “Playa 4 Life,” RoJo made sure that her whole project be deemed relatable. Holding it down for all the people who’ve been around from the start on “Day Ones,” to putting her crown on in “Follow Me,” there’s at least one song out of the thirteen that everyone can feel.

A true talent in every form, Rochelle Jordan makes our list for not only her vocal arrangement on 1 0 2 1, but for her track selection, consistency, and personable character that makes her music so connectable. – K.P.

    I liked Mariah’s album as well. I’m still shocked that not to many people got to hear it. Dave Hollister and Johnny Gill and Dave Hollister’s albums were also pretty decent.

    D’Angelo definitely had my favorite album last year.

    Chris Brown & August Alsina had some good albums too but that’s about it. I hope Badu and Soulchild come with some heat this year.
