AllMusic Review by

Perhaps the best volume in the Billboard Hot R&B Hits series, 1984 features five of the '80s' contemporary R&B classics: Ashford & Simpson's "Solid," Shannon's "Let the Music Play," Kool & the Gang's "Joanna," Chaka Khan's "I Feel for You," and the Pointer Sisters' "Automatic." The rest of the collection is strong as well, with Cameo's "She's Strange," Patti LaBelle's "If You Only Knew," and Cheryl Lynn's "Encore" among its other highlights, proving that 1984 was an unusually good year for R&B singles.
