I was born in 1992, so people older than me might scoff, but I grew up on music from the 90s and listen to it regularly. I may not have known the meaning and nuance behind certain songs when I was, let’s say, 5, but I understood the general feeling a great R&B song gives you. I was 8 in my mom’s car singing my heart out to Toni Braxton, Patti LaBelle, and Maxwell.
It’s common in Black households to put this music on when we are cleaning, but I find myself turning to 90s R&B when I’m really in my feelings. Like deep in my feelings. Whether it’s because of a woman or some other emotional crisis, there are so many classic albums from this era that have me covered.
Before you take this quiz, I have to say, I obviously could not list every single album released in the 90s. So I settled for a handful of pretty big deal ones. I’ll let you see the rest in the results because I don’t want to spoil anything, but I had so much fun revisiting these albums and making this quiz, and I want you to have fun taking this!
Also, I have to give credit to our Senior Editor Heather Hogan who gave me the idea for this quiz as she is a darling angel!
