My R&B aesthetic is funk, New Jack Swing and Hip-Hop based. I was a Neo-Soul fan but to the extent it was funky (hence my overall favorite R&B artist are D'Angelo and Badu).
Neo-Soul looses me when its too soft. A lot of what I heard from your list are Neo-Soul-ish in a Solange type of flavor. I dig it and will listen to while I work, but what I am missing is funky uptempo music you can dance too that isn't hip-hop based.
My R&B favorites these days are Usher and Chris Brown because they still put out Bops. But they are also from another Era.
Thanks for the list though. Will give a more thorough listening.
