R&B BOP QUEENS RATE | I'm Out

he / him
Gonna Tell Everybody (@londonrain)
My pick is a song that is not a bop by any measure - Gonna Tell Everybody (which was supposed to be the single after Say I).


This was my second choice. "Gonna Tell Everybody" is one of my favorite ballads of all time.
(It's slightly odd that Christina's biggest hit in Australia by a long shot is her feature on the Stafford Brothers' generic EDM banger Hello, which is good but not especially distinctive.)
Looking at Christina Milian's chart positions in Australia, I didn't realize that "AM To PM" underperformed and "When You Look At Me" was her breakthrough hit. Also, I had no idea that her biggest markets were Ireland, the Netherlands and the UK.
 
Voter picks: Ciara (part 2)

High Price feat. Ludacris (@Sprockrooster)
The high vocals are reminiscent like the ones on Goodies, but now perfected. The absolute vocal talent Ciara showcases her is out of this world. Also, Ludacris is basically having his best spits ever! A massive 11 for a Ciara rate, which I still regret not taking part in.

Get Up (@slaybellz)
"Get Up" but if someone's already picked it, please do "Oh" instead.

Lil' Star (feat. Cee-Lo) (@londonrain)
Lil' Star is probably Kelis's best vocal performance on a single and it's a shame Cee Lo is on it, given that Cee Lo is... clearly not a nice person. 2007 was a more innocent time, though, so I enjoy this for what it is.

(Honourable mention to Acapella despite it not being an R&B song because... well, who knew an artist could put out songs as different as Milkshake and Acapella and make both of them sound so good? It would have been an instant 10 if it had been included.)

Popular Thug (feat. Nas) (@Sprockrooster)
This track taken from the classic album 'The Neptunes present... Clones' only has a new rapper and basically the rest remained the same. Pusha T did definitely allright, but there is something about lovie dovies Nas and Kelis on this track. Also the production makes this stellar. No wonder this my 11 in the Kelis rate.

Another album that got heavy rotation in my house, this was just a really great song that I enjoy a lot.
