YouKnowIGotSoul was started in late 2009 and has since grown into one of the premier destinations online for all things R&B. VH1 recently named us among the Top 3 R&B sites and as of 2017, we are the 2nd largest R&B music site. (Source: Alexa)

With our headquarters located in NYC, the team relentlessly provides support to R&B music and artists. Our goal is to preserve the culture of R&B music while elevating those artists who embody the qualities that make us love the music.

As R&B music has faded from the mainstream, YouKnowIGotSoul has remained dedicated to the essence of keeping R&B music alive.

Through the years, we’ve conducted over 600 interviews with the biggest artists, producers and writers in R&B history. Included in that count is R. Kelly, Ne-Yo, Tyrese, Brandy, Miguel, Fantasia, Charlie Wilson, Anthony Hamilton, Monica and many others.

In addition, we share R&B news, new music and videos, concert coverage and editorials. YouKnowIGotSoul also runs a weekly podcast.

Additionally, YouKnowIGotSoul is the producer of the Sol Village R&B Showcase, NYC’s longest running R&B show, which is held at SOB’s and hosted by Eric Roberson.

YouKnowIGotSoul has been featured and cited in many major publications and media outlets since its inception, including:
