R&B BOP QUEENS RATE | I'm Out

Oh, Ashanti is one of those artists whose voice has gotten stronger and more accomplished over time - but in Rock Wit U she sounds like she’s straining her voice a lot, which seems unnecessary for a song that isn’t that hard.
 
Voter picks: Amerie (part 2)

Losing U (@londonrain)
My pick for Amerie is Losing U. Ms. Rogers really went out and took the riff from iconic 1992 track Didi by Khaled and seamlessly wove it into an R&B bop. (Compare this with, say, the absolute fucking hash Ciara made of the Kehna Hi Kya sample on Turntables.)

Destiny's Child Tribute (@slaybellz)
I don't actually know any other Amerie songs so please highlight this Destiny's Child tribute ddd.


Not The Only One (@Holly Something)
My fave song of hers, I was hoping for a single release.


Bonus:
after every artist, I inserted a picture/gif about my feelings listening to their song selections

Don't Leave Me Alone (feat. 7 Aurelius) (@Sprockrooster)
The vast amount of bops I could pick from. I also highly adore Wonderful and her added verse for her Concrete Rose album, but the whole R. Kelly thing in that feature - let me stay away. 7 Aurelius is a much safer pick there. His vocals are actually good for a male R&B artist.

Down 4 U (feat. Ja Rule)
(@slaybellz)
I feel like everyone is gonna pick "Always On Time" or "Mesmerize", so let me choose "Down 4 U" with Ja Rule.


Foolish/Sonnet (mash-up)
(@Conan)
It's nowhere to be found online, but someone onced did a mashup of The Verve's Sonnet and Foolish and it was the most wonderful thing.

Freedom (@Holly Something)
I love the message of the song.


Into You (Fabulous feat. Ashanti)

Voter picks: Cassie (part 2)

Indo (@Sprockrooster)
When talking R&B queens I obviously need a way to shoe-in Solange in here somewhere. She brought the bops in the zeroes with Crush, I Decided, Sandcastle Disco (an 11) and T.O.N.Y.! What is the link with Cassie you wonder. Well, Indo is on Solange's mixtape Saint Heron.
