AllMusic Review by

Billboard Hot R&B Hits 1980 features some of the year's most popular contemporary R&B singles, including the Isley Brothers' "Don't Say Goodnight (It's Time for Love) Pts. 1 &2," Fatback's "Backstrokin'," and Teddy Pendergrass' "Love T.K.O." Gladys Knight & the Pips' "Landlord," the Manhattans' "Shining Star," and Twennynine's "Peanut Butter" are some of the other standouts on this album, which reaffirms that 1980 was one of the decade's strongest years for R&B singles.
