In the 90s I did not like RnB. At least the 90s variety.
Too polished, too lacking in tunes, too full of fools dripping in gold wibbling on about crappy nightclubs I’d never go near even if I was dripping in wealth myself, too well liked (I suspected) by footballers.
Well tonight I was messing about on Spotify and listened to Creep by TLC and boy, I was just plain flat out wrong. This song is sexy as hell, the lyrics are as good as I Heard It Through The Grapevine, it’s funky, it might damn well be the actual best tune of the 90s.
Where does a person go next for “actually good 90s slow jam RnB type of things?” Anyone here into that?
(By the way, Bump and Grind by R Kelly is still shite)
