Timeless R&B songs (2000s)

Updated: Dec 23, 2020

Being born in the late 90s has meant that I haven't always been able to fully appreciate the R&B songs of that era. Don't get me wrong, the 90s most definitely had a lot of great and classic R&B songs, but the R&B songs from the 2000s era have a huge place in my heart as I actually grew up listening to them and watching the music videos as they were released on music channels. As such, for nostalgic reasons I've always viewed a lot of the songs released in that era as being the best. There were just so many amazing songs released in the 2000s and early 2010s that I still love today, and for that reason I think that a lot of them are timeless.


In no particular order here are 25 R&B songs from the 2000s and a few from the early 2010s, that I personally think are timeless. These are the songs that I strongly believe we'll continue listening to in 30 years time!
