This took me forever to compile. It took lots of searching through my library, catching up on some late-in-the-year releases, and going back and reminding myself of some of my faves from early in the year…The only rules were that the ALBUM (the Drake mixtape would have charted on my top, but it topped the mixtapes instead) had to be released in 2009 (thus, why an album like Beyonce’s “I Am… Sasha Fierce”, which had tons of hot singles this year, is not included on this list).
Check out my picks below and PLEASE leave comments, questions, praise, hate, or suggestions for my lists…Thanks in advance!
My Top 20 Albums of the Year
- Rated R
Never would have thought she would be on my list over Chris Breezy, but once I finally gave in and listened to it, she edged him out...
19) Melanie Fiona
- The Bridge
Soulful melodies and great production make this the female throwback album of the year...
18) R. Kelly
