    the 90s had some cool stuff from an R&B standpoint. What did you like from that era?

    Awesome post. I'm a drooling En Vogue and Tony! Toni! Tone! fan, also love Babyface, Missy Elliot, BBD, and numerous others. But here's my favorite single from the era, shivers :

    I gotta say, they still got it going on. I don't even care if Max has gained a little weight. :)

    ^ heck yes. Also, "Don't Let Go" is a jam that gets me all tied up in knots



    "If I could wear your clothes, I'd pretend I was you -- and lose control"



    It's easy to forget how radical these sounded 20 years ago, bangin',

    ^ I remember the day I first heard that song, on Nickelodeon's "The Nick Hit List," I was struck dumb in amazement

    "See if this one moves you."

    That song is pretty much the definition of the perfect R&B Ballad.

    This one was and still is a big one for me--groundbreaking. I'd say for me this was the best of the 90s R&B tracks:
