A few that come to mind for me...

"Fallin'" - Alicia Keys (2001)
"Crazy In Love" - Beyonce (2003)
"Lose My Breath" - Destiny's Child (2004)

...and a few more I'll probably think of later.


I don't know if Rihanna qualifies as an R&B musician, but I still like "SOS" (2006) and "Umbrella" (2007).

I'm pretty sure Beyonce is considered R&B. She was a member of an R&B group.

I'm with Jeff what else would you call it? Beyonce is definitely an R&B artist first.

I would call it more "pop".

Well, a lot of "pop" is very closely related to R&B. Some musicians like to combine elements of several music genres. I see nothing wrong with that. :-\\

Its classified as both pop and R&B in a google search but I think the underscore has more of an R&B vibe to it.

I love quite a lot of R&B.

Anything mentioned above is good, Beyonce, Usher, TLC, Destiny's Child, etc. "Baby Boy" by Beyonce...what a song. "I Don't Wanna Know" by Mario Winans from like 04 was a great song too. "Say Yes" by Floetry, also very good. Southside by Lloyd, Dip it Low by Christina Milian, Torn by LeToya, I Should Have Cheated by Keyshia Cole, Knock You Down by Keri Hilson. My Love Is Like...Wo by Mya I loved that one. In Those Jeans by Ginuwine, and How You Gonna Act Like That by Tyrese are a couple others.

I am a crazy Ne-Yo fan right now! I love his music and he has a wonderful voice! I also love Keyshia Cole as well. She came to my school for a concert and she sounded excellent live! I mean, I thought I was listening to the CD lol!
