For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

In no particular order...

Mayer Hawthorne - Man About Town
To be honest, all of Mayer's albums are great so any one of them could be on this list but seeing as I'm trying to keep it to one album per artist, I'm going with Man About Town, his most recent solo album. If you haven't heard it yet, you're in for a treat. Think Steely Dan crossed with Hall & Oates and you're halfway there.

Tuxedo - Tuxedo III
OK, so kind of cheating on the whole "one album per artist" seeing as Mayer Hawthorne makes up half of Tuxedo but so what. Whereas Mayer's solo stuff is a mixture of soul and classic RnB, Tuxedo is straight up funk. Once again I've gone for their most recent album but all 3 are worthy of inclusion.

Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer
Janelle keeps on getting better and better. Her latest album is nothing short of a modern day masterpiece.

Bootsy Collins - World Wide Funk
Probably Bootsy's best album in 30 years or more.

Prince - HitnRun Phase Two
After the dismal Phase One, my enthusiasm for new Prince material was at an all time low. But then he hit me with what is one of my favourite Prince albums of all time. Classic, yet fresh. If Baltimore had been left off, it would have been perfect.

D'Angelo - Black Messiah
I know I said these were in no particular order, but Black Messiah is my number 1 album of the 2010s. I had been waiting for new D'Angelo for a very long time and he did not let me down. I just wish he released new material more often.

CYW is my choice for Album of the Decade, and Black Messiah is in my top 5 at least.

I initially left it out of my list but I would just like to add Zapp's latest album "Zapp VII - Roger & Friends". Zapp's first album in something like 17 years and it doesn't disappoint. Unfortunately it seems to have flown under the radar a bit but it's definitely worth checking out and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for some classic, old school funk. The album features Bootsy Collins, Tuxedo and even some posthumous Roger Troutman amongst others.
