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.
With last week's front-runner, Beyoncé's "Party (Remix)," graduating to our Top Picks lineup, Mary J. Blige's "Mr. Wrong" (formerly the runner-up), climbs to first. Following in second is Shanell's "So Good," making its chart debut along with Day26's "Made Love Lately" (in seventh) Trey Songz' "What I Be On" (in 10th), Amy Winehouse's "Like Smoke" (in 11th), Robin Thicke's "Pretty Lil Heart" (in 12th), the Gym Class Heroes' "Ass Back Home" (in 16th) and Tyrese's "Fireworkz (Remix)" (in 18th). Down from our Top Picks, the Far East Movement's "Jello," Rihanna's "We Found Love," Bruno Mars' "It Will Rain" and Miguel's "Quickie (After Midnight Mix)" land in fourth, fifth, sixth and ninth. Edged out by the newcomers are cuts by Jason Derulo ("It Girl"), Elle Varner ("Only Wanna Give It to You"), Mario ("The Walls"), JMSN ("Alone"), Willow Smith ("Fireball"), Gym Class Heroes ("Life Goes On"), Freesol ("Fascinated"), Robin Thicke ("Life After War") and Timbaland ("Give It a Go").
