Welcome to the Booth's Top R&B Chart! As always, your feedback has determined which songs made the cut. Each chart’s lineup is calculated using a special DJBooth Formula that takes into account member ratings and reviews as well as features’ overall popularity.
*Last week's front-runners, Rihanna's "Birthday Cake (Remix)" and B.o.B.'s "So Good," graduate to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart. Taking their place on top are two new features Novel's "Video Games" and The-Dream's "Kill the Lights."
*Debuting along with this week's top two, J. Holiday's "More Than a Love Song," Far East Movement's "Live My Life," Akon's "Hurt Somebody," Gorillaz' "DoYaThing," Rita Ora's "R.I.P." and Teyana Taylor's "D.U.I." snag third, fourth, sixth, seventh, 12th and 18th.
*Formerly absent from our charts, Jennifer Hudson's "Think Like a Man" resurfaces in 15th.
*Tyrese's "Fireworkz (Remix)," Cassie's "King of Hearts" and Jenny Bapst's "Wrong but Right" tumble from our Top Picks to claim eighth, 10th and 13th.
