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



#15. Teyana Taylor – ‘VII’

It may have taken Teyana Taylor seven years to give fans a full-length album, but trust us; it was definitely worth the wait. Leading the project with the Yo Gotti and Pusha T single “Maybe,” the singer made sure that that wouldn’t be the only single we pressed replay on. Taking listeners on an emotional roller coaster with every track, the young singer flaunted her vocal ability on the solid debut album.

While the album featured a duet with Chris Brown, Teyana chose to leave other singers off and rightfully so. The decision to solely showcase her voice on her debut gave fans the opportunity to see just why they should’ve picked up on her earlier. VII – which hosts the tracks “In The Air,” “Broken Hearted Girl,” “Dreams,” and more – definitely held its own against the veterans and some of the years best releases. – 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.
