Burna Boy, Beyonce, Others Make 75 Best Hip-Hop and R&B Albums of 2019

DJBooth has released a list of the 75 best hip-hop and R&B albums of 2019 and Nigeria’s Burna Boy cut number 18 with his Grammy-nominated album, “African Giant”.

Speaking of “African Giant”, Ronnia Cherry, a creator and writer based in Kingston, Jamaica wrote:

Little Simz who closes the top 5 is a UK-based Nigerian and born Simbiatu Abisola Ajikawo is a UK-based Nigerian. Tyler the Creator who takes No 1 spot has a Nigerian father but never met him.

The eligibility period for this list is December 24, 2018, through December 9, 2019, while projects labeled as EPs were disqualified.

DJBooth made it clear the list belongs to its team as it does not expect everyone to agree with the picks which had Tyler the Creator’s “IGOR” top at number one.
