The 20 most underrated R&B albums of all time


No. 14 Intro (1993) by Intro

One of the first entries into the “hip-hop soul” canon that would come to dominate mid-to-late 90s R&B, the debut album from this Brooklyn-based trio was full of polished-yet-gritty urban love songs. Building on the template that had been laid by Mary J. Blige’s 1992 debut What’s the 411?, and led by late singer-songwriter Kenny Greene, Intro delivered some of the strongest songwriting and production in 90s R&B.
