Top R&B Songs of the 2010's

The Top 100 R&B Songs of the 2010’s Spotify Playlist

Top R&B Songs of the 2010's

We recently celebrated the 10 year anniversary of YouKnowIGotSoul which means we had the pleasure of covering R&B music spanning the entire 2010’s decade. One thing we pride ourselves in is listening to every release we can get our hands on each year and presenting a list of the best songs we’ve heard at year end.

So it became a logical conclusion for us that we should look back on the entire decade and determine which songs we felt were best in those 10 years. It didn’t make any sense to try and rank the songs, and we ended up with a few more than 100, but we felt confident in our opinion that these were the best R&B songs we’ve heard in the 2010’s.

The list you’ll see below is unranked and we made it easy to listen to all of these through the Spotify playlist above. Without further ado, enjoy!
