【歌單】40首1998年R&B金曲



和前一年抒情歌、慢板曲充斥的情形比較,1998年節奏藍調與靈魂樂稍有新意、活力,尤其下列名單前十首單曲最為突顯,如:艾莉亞(Aaliyah)的〈Are You That Somebody?〉至今聽起來仍不褪流行;莫妮法(Monifah)、菲絲依凡絲(Faith Evans)各自從經典舞曲取材的〈Touch It〉(Laid Back〈White House〉)及〈Love Like This〉(Chic〈Chic Cheer〉),甚至莫妮卡(Monica)的〈The First Night〉(Diana Ross〈Love Hangover〉)皆具相當水準。

另外,同時融合新舊元素的作品本身質感出色,排行榜成績卻不甚亮眼,由拉斐爾沙狄克 (Raphael Saadiq)替獨腳戲合唱團(Solo)操刀的〈Touch Me〉、狄安吉羅(D'Angelo)攜手DJ Premier共造之〈Devil's Pie〉,銷售數字都不太理想。其它來自蜜西艾略特(Missy Elliott)、提姆巴蘭(Timbaland)、勞凱利(R. Kelly)、JD(Jermaine Dupri)、Darkchild(Rodney Jerkins)、Static Major、Dallas Austin、Tim & Bob、Jam & Lewis與Kay Gee的創作則遍行天下、滿地開花。
