【歌單】40首1994年R&B金曲





勞凱利(R. Kelly)1992年和公共宣告合唱團(Public Announcement)聯手出輯、締造五首節奏藍調單曲榜Top 15,其中兩首還是冠軍,不過到了1994年才真正大開知名度、奠定歌壇地位。個人首張大碟《12齣戲》(12 Play)1993年11月發行後,緩緩待至隔年2月力挫喬戴西合唱團(Jodeci)、摘下節奏藍調專輯榜冠軍,且一連稱霸九周,終究躋身流行榜亞軍。雖然之前即曾替團體The Winans及Hi-Five譜曲,但創作才華在1994年更上一層樓,其作品散見各處,包含當年出道的幾名新人——男團N-Phase、千面女郎二重唱(Changing Faces)和彼此關係最為人議論的女弟子艾莉亞(Aaliyah)。

1994年除了艾莉亞外,初露頭角的白蘭蒂(Brandy)、自由鳥蜜雪兒(Me'Shell Ndegéocello)現今仍活動不輟、質量兼具,也莫忘首支主打便衝上節奏藍調單曲榜第一的正宗靈魂兄弟合唱團(Soul for Real)、發跡於客串同門四人組Subway歌曲的702。
