    Get real!  TLC’s FanMail did NOT suck.  It’s a great album that deserved its Best R&B Album win.

    1995 R&B ALBUM
    Boyz II Men II – WINNER

    Anita Baker – Rhythm of Love
    Tevin Campbell – I’m Ready
    Gladys Knight – Just for You
    Me’Shell NdegéOcello – Plantation Lullabies
    Luther Vandross – Songs

    Most of these are very strong albums. Me’Shell’s album would have been a worthy winner

    Agreed. FanMail isn’t as great as CrazySexyCool but it’s still a worthy winner. TLC deserved their GRAMMYs.

    Monica & Brandy are so under appreciated by the GRAMMYs 🤦🏾‍♂️

    1998 R&B ALBUM

    Erykah Badu Baduizm – WINNER
    Babyface – The Day
    Mary J. Blige – Share My World
    Boyz II Men – Evolution
    Patti LaBelle – Flame
    Whitney Houston – The Preacher’s Wife: Original Soundtrack Album

    Erykah was a good winner, but Patti would have been deserving. When Patti’s albums are named around fire – look out. Burnin’ was fantastic too

    The Preacher’s Wife belonged in the Gospel Field 🤦🏾‍♂️

    TLC had no business winning over Whitney or Mary, for that matter.

    Mary would have been my pick. It’s my favorite album by Mary J. Blige. TLC’s Fanmail was huge and had strong critic support, so I don’t begrudge the win at all.
