AllMusic Review by

Released in late 2007, shortly before the 50th Grammy ceremony, this well-selected 16-track compilation presents an excellent array of award-winning R&B tunes from the 1980s and subsequent decades. Highlights include Terence Trent D’Arby’s simmering “Wishing Well,” Sade’s “No Ordinary Love,” TLC’s sassy “No Scrubs,” and Beyonce’s Motown-inflected “Crazy in Love,” which features her beau, Jay-Z.
