Hello R&B/Urban forum regulars and visitors.

Despite being the probable underdog in this contest, we still have the opportunity to showcase the best of what the genre has to offer with the other genre forums (Pop, Indie/Rock/Alternative, Dance), as well as the Eurovision forum because why not?

If you haven't read Lindsey's Base Camp Thread yet, click the link provided.

Here is the gist of it though:
You may post up to five nominations in this thread. The songs with the most nominations will go towards our national final where four songs will be chosen to compete against the other forums.
The theme for this contest is Signature Sounds, so think about what will really represent the artists in mind and the genre of Urban music.
You may not nominate any song that has been a UK Top 40 hit or has finished top 10 in Eurovision or by an artist with their own forum. Any songs nominated will be subject to vetting by the moderators.
Also try to avoid songs that have previously been hits in the BuzzJack Song Contest. A list of all previous entries can be found here.
You have until 23:59 07/11/16 to nominate.

Let's try to get a range of different sub-genres too (e.g. Hip Hop/R&B/Grime/Dancehall/Afrobeat). We don't want four songs that sound the same! Also, tempting as it may be, can we have a good mix of male and female artists and songs too!

Good shout on 'No Games'! Still a club staple in Nottingham at least!

I think Keri Hilson feat. Nelly - Lose Control could be a good shout and Ciara 'Dance Like We're Making Love'

Yes, I was going to nominate No Games too... hear it so much I can't believe it wasn't a Top 40 hit!

Think this is ripe for a big Grime song actually. If we want to reflect the best of Urban then it cannot be ignored. Something like Man Don't Care, 3 Wheel-ups or Know Me From should be nominated. So much urban stuff doesn't get in the chart anymore so this could be quite beneficial or quite hard!

Oh yes! 'Obsessed' is a BIIIG one. It got released mid week and about 2 months too late iirc. All hype had gone by the time the UK got it. sad.gif

She's R&B, this is the R&B AND Urban forum kink.gif. Her threads are in this forum and there are different styles of the genre. So yes

Good selection, but no UK Top 40 hits are eligible I'm afraid (M.O. and Shontelle).
