Best R&B Songs of 2016

If you've only been listening to mainstream pop/urban radio, you've probably been missing out on most of these jems! Unsurprisingly, the best songs are songs that weren't hits or were not released as singles for radio. This is because sadly r&b does not do well on the radio anymore, that work/no limit crap they play on the radio really ain't r&b!

The Top Ten Best R&B Songs of 2016

Tell Me - Usher

Not just the best song of 2016, but probably Usher's best song, and one of the greatest r&b songs ever made! How can such a great song be included on such a bad album! - DaWyteNight

Versace on the Floor - Bruno Mars

This song is everything. Reminds me of Melt Away/I'll Make Love to You a bit. - DaWyteNight


I love it, it's like a freestyle! - DaWyteNight

Ivy - Frank Ocean

I thought that I was dreaming, when I first heard this amazing song! And Frank! - DaWyteNight

Better - Brian McKnight

No BETTER song than this one! - DaWyteNight

I Want You Back - Nicole Scherzinger

Even though it's a cover of I Want You Back by The Jackson 5, Nicole nailed it with her soothing, silky sexy vocals! It's a much different interpretation than the original, a very soulful rendition and I love how she did this and didn't just do a cover but made it her own! I just wish something could be done with it, I mean it's too good to be this unnoticed! Even without a beat it's still great because of her smooth sexy soulful voice! 10/10 Nicole, now we just need some new music from you...hurry up girl! - DaWyteNight

Love 4 U to Like Me - Silk

I love the song, such a feel good song and it describes how new love first feels. I can relate! - DaWyteNight

wRoNg - ZAYN

Love this song, so dark and chilled, and Kehlani does good too! - DaWyteNight

Comfortable - Nick Jonas

Best song of the album and by Nick Jonas. It's so chill and then the beat picks up, I love songs like this one. - DaWyteNight

The Contenders

Secrets - The Weeknd

Love this song and I especially love the bridge! Good job King Abel! - DaWyteNight
