ThisisRnB Presents: The 20 Best R&B Albums of 2016


Rihanna – ANTI

Rihanna came to slay in 2016 with the release of her long anticipated R8 album, which we all know now to be, ANTI. Serving us one of the biggest songs of the spring and summer, “Work” featuring Drake, the Bajan superstar caught all by surprise with the project’s alternative R&B/pop sound. The songstress created an album with the perfect mix of dance tracks, love ballads, and Bad Gal anthems that resonated strongly with her Navy. Becoming the soundtrack to much of this year, there was no escaping some of the most infectious singles such as “Needed Me,” “Kiss It Better,” and “Love on the Brain.” From start to finish, RiRi’s 8th album showcased not only her versatility and usually overlooked vocals, but a new sound that we’re completely obsessed with. –Jamila Wright

    Most overrated album… Rihanna. To me, it sounded like an unfinished project. Also, I don’t remember one song off of the Blonde album.
