The end of 2016 is upon us, so that means we’re once again ready to kick off our year end countdown in partnership with SoulInStereo.com. We’ve done this countdown each of the past few years where we reveal ten songs from the top 100 each day.
Just to give some background, this Top 100 R&B Songs of 2016 list is a culmination of votes tallied by Tom and Kyle of YouKnowIGotSoul, and Edward Bowswer of SoulInStereo. Each of us have listened to just about every r&b release this year, and then fiercely debated what belongs in the top 100. This is what we ended up with.
We’ve debated throughout the year whether this was an acceptable year for r&b or one of the slower ones in recent memory. This list gives evidence that that there were plenty of great songs released over the course of the year, and many of them ended up being album cuts not released as singles. We encourage you to listen to anything you’re not familiar with on the countdown, and have our assurance that you will most likely find it dope.
In case you missed it, you can also check out our Top 10 R&B Albums of 2016 list as well.
So without further ado…
