The Top 100 R&B Songs of 2018 Presented by YouKnowIGotSoul X SoulInStereo

Top 100 RnB Songs of 2018

We’ve reached the end of 2018, and as is the tradition around here, we continue to look back on the year that was for r&b music. We recently published our Top 10 Best R&B Albums of 2018 list, and acknowledged that while it wasn’t a great year for R&B, there were a bunch of good projects.

Additionally, we continue to see the trend of artists releasing albums less frequently or not at all, opting instead for just singles or even EP’s. As you’ll see on the list below, many of these songs didn’t make an album. And of course like we always do, we included some album cuts that artists didn’t choose as singles.

Once again, YouKnowIGotSoul.com has collaborated with our friend Edd Bowser at SoulInStereo.com to present the Top 100 R&B Songs of 2018. This list is a culmination of votes tallied by Tom and Kyle of YouKnowIGotSoul, and Edd of SoulInStereo. Each of us nominated what we felt were the best songs we heard of the course of the year, and then debated which deserved to be included in the list. We all agree that the list you’ll find below came out fairly.

If you’re curious about our credentials, between us we listened to every R&B project we could get our hands on this year, including EPs. We also listened to the majority of singles sent our way. So we do have an educated say in this, like we have for nearly a decade now.
