Top 100 RnB Songs of 2020


As the year 2020 finally comes to a close, that means it’s time for us to once again reveal our Top R&B Songs of the year. We’ve linked up with our friend Edward Bowser of once again to put together this year end list.

There is no disputing that 2020 was a horrible year around the globe but also a much different year for music. In many ways, music went along way in serving as therapy to all of us who were dealing with the horrific effects of the pandemic. Although many artists chose to sit on the sidelines and not release new music this year, we are very thankful for the ones who did.

The picks below are a culmination of the choices of Tom and Kyle of, and Edd of We each selected our favorite songs of the year, combined our lists, and put them all together into one big one.

This year we did things a little different. Since there weren’t nearly as many R&B releases in 2020 compared to previous years, we decided to go with a Top 70 instead of the usual Top 100. In addition, we decided to only rank the top 10 and just list the remaining 60. Everything listed after the ranked top 10 is in alphabetical order.

There was a lot going on in the world this year but there was also plenty of quality music released. Please take the time to listen to anything below you might have overlooked because it’s certainly worth your attention.
