    I'm surprised they didn't mention B.G.O.T.I. since Oobie had some success w/ Lil Jon.

    But besides the Icons, the All-Stars and the Hitmakers, I actually remember most of those other groups, back when they had songs on the radio and videos on The Box, FlavaTV, etc. I still have Elusion's album and Allure's first album, which are two of my personal favorites.

    I remember Tenderoni being on the Soul Food soundtrack, I don't think they even released an album.

    Kut Klose was better than people think, but the singles they had were some good music.

    @LONDON!

    Sugah was Tweet's group... they were affiliated with Devante Swing, Timbaland and them...

    This thread has a little info on them...

    Xscape doesn't belong in the icons category.

    Surprise to me too, but I guess they do fit the criteria set forth in the graphic.

    People talk about how Rap has fallen off since the 90s, but R&B has fallen much further. When you look at those groups and the male groups too, you have to wonder what happened.

    Yo they gotta swap Destiny's Child & Xscape

    Nah, remember, they are talking about the 90s. A fair amount of Destiny's Child's success came in the 00s.

    Yeah I was thinking that was the logic but in my opinion it's a technicality. Either way Xscape gotta come down though. I could see Total up there before them.

    Damn they couldn't give Zhane an honorable mention?

    Seeing that list just makes me miss 90s R&B more

    They should do one for male groups too. That what be interesting to see.

    What the hell happened to R&B groups anyway? Historically, most R&B acts were groups. Now, all of a sudden, there are none.

    IMO. R&B got saturated with too many features from rappers. That line got skewed a long time ago with rappers trying to be singers and vice versa. It was like they had gotten desperate just to be heard and 'sold out' for a feature. The talent came from the singing, what they were singing about, and the emotions of said song.
    I haven't listened to a true R&B album in years now. I mean true by being slow songs with a few uptempo tracks.
    Nowadays, you'll have slow songs, pop songs, etc. on albums. Trying to cater to too many audiences now. That's where you lose your sound at.

    I guess Zhane & Changing Faces would probably be in the All-Stars section.....

    What hit did Zhane have besides "Hey Mr. DJ"
