The year 2021 has come to an end and we continue our look back at some of the best the R&B genre had to offer. We previously released our list of the Top 100 Best R&B Songs of 2021 in partnership with Soul In Stereo, and how we share our list of the Best R&B Albums in 2021.
We tried to narrow the list down to 15, but ended up with 17 anyway. It was a strong year for R&B music coming off of a 2020 that saw limited releases in the genre due to the pandemic. We never like to rank the albums, instead just celebrate quality releases, so the below is listed in alphabetical order. You can click on any of the album titles to be directed to listen to the album. Enjoy!
