Oh FLO, I love them dearly. The girl group – who if you don’t know are 2023’s answer to Destiny’s Child – has enough panache, charisma and swagger they could give Kelly Rowland a run for her money. This feminine anthem, featuring a booty-shaking verse from the OG Missy Elliot, telling you to ‘get your hair done, get your nails did’ has a no-shits-given attitude that’s dripping in confidence. Listen to this tune as you brush past your ex in the street with a fresh manicure and take no notice.
Whether you're looking to dance in the club, have a singing sesh or set the mood, R&B songs are always, always the way to go. Nothing fills a UK dance floor like a playlist of old school R&B songs, but the genre is still one of the most popular on the planet, and bangers haven't stopped being released.
Fly Girl (who our writer calls 2023's answer to Destiny's Child) released a tune this year that could have been straight out of the noughties, and against all odds, it's made it to our number one spot. But the old classics are just as fresh as they always were, and on here you'll find old bangers from the likes of Lauryn Hill, TLC, Rihanna and more. Whatever the vibe, read on for our list of the best R&B songs ever.
