Billboard Hot R&B Hits 1989 features some of the year's most popular contemporary R&B singles, including Soul II Soul's "Keep on Movin'," De La Soul's "Me, Myself and I," and the Gap Band's "All of My Love." Regina Belle's "Baby Come to Me," Jody Watley's "Real Love," and Maze's "Can't Get Over You" are some of the other standouts on this album, which also features songs by Surface, Skyy, Eric Gable, and Miki Howard. While this set lacks a unified musical outlook, it does offer an accurate cross-section of the year's biggest R&B hits.
