    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.

    @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.

    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?

    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.....
