For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

In no particular order...

Mayer Hawthorne - Man About Town
To be honest, all of Mayer's albums are great so any one of them could be on this list but seeing as I'm trying to keep it to one album per artist, I'm going with Man About Town, his most recent solo album. If you haven't heard it yet, you're in for a treat. Think Steely Dan crossed with Hall & Oates and you're halfway there.

Tuxedo - Tuxedo III
OK, so kind of cheating on the whole "one album per artist" seeing as Mayer Hawthorne makes up half of Tuxedo but so what. Whereas Mayer's solo stuff is a mixture of soul and classic RnB, Tuxedo is straight up funk. Once again I've gone for their most recent album but all 3 are worthy of inclusion.

Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer
Janelle keeps on getting better and better. Her latest album is nothing short of a modern day masterpiece.

Bootsy Collins - World Wide Funk
Probably Bootsy's best album in 30 years or more.

Prince - HitnRun Phase Two
After the dismal Phase One, my enthusiasm for new Prince material was at an all time low. But then he hit me with what is one of my favourite Prince albums of all time. Classic, yet fresh. If Baltimore had been left off, it would have been perfect.

D'Angelo - Black Messiah
I know I said these were in no particular order, but Black Messiah is my number 1 album of the 2010s. I had been waiting for new D'Angelo for a very long time and he did not let me down. I just wish he released new material more often.



Honourable mentions to:

Chromeo - Head Over Heels
Bruce Springsteen - Western Stars
Justin Timberlake - Man of the Woods
Harts - Queens, Kings and All Big Things

CYW is my choice for Album of the Decade, and Black Messiah is in my top 5 at least.

I initially left it out of my list but I would just like to add Zapp's latest album "Zapp VII - Roger & Friends". Zapp's first album in something like 17 years and it doesn't disappoint. Unfortunately it seems to have flown under the radar a bit but it's definitely worth checking out and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for some classic, old school funk. The album features Bootsy Collins, Tuxedo and even some posthumous Roger Troutman amongst others.

^Nice to see the love for KT's album 'Invisible Empire//Crescent Moon'... I haven't listened to it in a minute but I included it in a 2013 fav album top 10 I did on another forum with some friends... That also included Matangi by MIA and AM by Arctic Monkeys.

.

.

Recent ones I've enjoyed include 'Man Of The Woods' by Justin Timberlake (I know not a lot of people liked it but I see it for the labour of love that it was), 'Liberation' by Christina Aguilera, 'No One Ever Really Dies' by NERD, pretty much the entire discography of Anderson .Paak (LOL), 'Choose Your Weapon' by Hiatus Kaiyote, 'Lune Rouge' by Tokimonsta, 'Yours Truly', by Ariana Grande, 'TPAB' by Kendrick Lamar, 'Settle' and 'Caracal' by Disclosure, 'Tru' by Lloyd, 'Songs of Innocence' and 'Songs of Experience' by U2, 'Sonic Highways' by Foo Fighters, 'Cura' by Keys & Krates, 'Way Back When' by Louis Futon...

I don't want your rhythm without your rhyme

Alcest - Les Voyages de l'Âme

Blood Orange - Cupid Deluxe

Chromeo - Business Casual

Ghost - Infestissumam

Mastodon - The Hunter

St. Vincent - s/t

The Weeknd - Beauty Behind The Madness

Steven Wilson - Hand. Cannot. Erase.

Could have included several by some of those artists. It wasn't an easy to decade to find favourites - I liked it when artists that started out as "indie", or "alternative", just sort of gave up and started doing poppy records.
