AllMusic Review by

Like many other releases from UMTV U.K., this two-disc set is generically and somewhat misleadingly titled. While the songs are mixed, not even close to all of them are truly R&B, and most of them are present in dance mix (as opposed to original single or album version) form. That said, this is a relentlessly high-energy mix of R&B, rap, and dance-pop hits circa 2008-2009, led by Ne-Yo’s “Closer,” Nelly Furtado’s “Maneater,” Keyshia Cole’s “I Should Have Cheated,” Sugababes’ “About You Now,” N-Dubz’s “Strong Again,” Freemasons featuring Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s “Heartbreak (Make Me a Dancer),” and Eve’s “Tambourine.”
