Useful only if you absolutely need a few of these songs and cannot find them anywhere else, Greatest R&B Hits of the 90's is an odd and skimpy compilation, offering a random assortment of only ten cuts. Some of the inclusions -- Run-D.M.C.'s "Down With the King," B-Rock & the Bizz's still-fun "Mybabydaddy" -- aren't exactly synonymous with R&B, and none of them -- with the exception of SWV's "So Into You," and maybe Chantay Savage's extremely popular version of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" -- represent the best R&B had to offer during the '90s. Aretha Franklin, Shanice, Damian Dane, and Sylk-E. Fine are also in on the action.
