The 20 most underrated R&B albums of all time


No. 15 Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams (2008) by Solange

Being Beyonce’s little sister was a bit of a curse for Solange Knowles initially. But after her overly-manufactured and “safe” debut album went nowhere, the spunky singer returned with a concept album driven by Hitsville-era Motown homages and showcased her range as an artist. Basking in the glow of that era’s immaculate pop-soul and brimming with the singer’s own introspection, it garnered her the acclaim and fanbase that established her as her own artistic force.
