Talk about a genre that is almost never covered by lists. I know next to nothing about new jack swing (the only exposure I ever had to the style was A Goofy Movie) but I'm pretty sure Mary J. Blige's What's the 411? should be included.

I'm pretty sure it's a genre list, though.

Absolutely 100% agreed. I don't think I've ever seen a New Jack Swing list until now. :music-rockon: That is the R&B era of my youth for sure. Bravo and an awesome list. What's The 411 should be on the list and very high on it I might add.

Good list!

"Dangerous" should be higher, top 2 in my opinion.
