Any one of these hunky motherf***ers could've won and we would've been SUPER HAPPY!
Honestly, when the AMAs announced that Justin Timberlake won for Favorite Male Artist (Soul/R&B), we were filled with emotion — the same kind of emotion we feel when his voice wafts through our ears and gives us massive soundboners!
This makes us SO HAPPY!
Congrats! This was SO perf — we're just not sure about the whole Rihanna's mom thing… she IS beautiful, but that attempt at an accent??
Ch-ch-check out his acceptance speech… AFTER THE JUMP!!!

The only way we can describe this sound is luscious!
Jordin Sparks premiered a new song yesterday—and it's everything we've been craving and more!
11.11 (Wish) is velvety smooth goodness that our ears are totes thankful for!
The amaze track was produced by Salaam Remi, who's worked with Amy Winehouse and Ne-Yo, and it captures a more subtle R&B sound from the American Idol winner!
Jordy shared the new release via Twitter, and from what she said, this one's for the fans:
The 23-year-old singer has yet to confirm release plans for her new single and third studio album, but we eagerly wait in anticipation!
If this is a taste of what's to come, we're super stoked!

Ne-Yo loves kids ALMOST as much as he likes music!
That's why the r&b star holds a charity ball called where he gives back the youth of foster care with donations of toys, sneakers, clothing, electronics and bicycles at the LA event, courtesy of Coca Cola, Creative Recreation, Ubisoft, Carol’s Daughter and Toys For Tots.
Here's what the foundation director said:
“We created The Giving Tour to help uplift the spirits of youth in foster care who for many reasons may not be able to experience the holiday. Each child that we have reached since our inaugural event four years ago still holds a piece of my heart, and I’m thrilled to continue this amazing series with another round of outstanding and deserving kids.”
What a huge heart the singer and foundation's workers have.
That's what we call the Christmas spirit!!!

Beyoncé & Mary J. Blige will always be close to our hearts, but on this day it was totally someone else's night!!!
Rihanna was the WINNER of the Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist award, and there was definitely not a dry eye among the audience who were all glad to see this lady get what she deserved.
Although she wasn't there to collect her statuette, she was absolutely there in our hearts - metaphorically speaking.
We think she was actually in Sweden or something.

Making GOOD music for Brandy is as easy as taking candy from a baby. Needless to say - her brand new music video for Wildest Dreams is dandy and will make you do the opposite facial expression of the frowny.
Watch her sing, watch her dance, watch her do both and stay sexy while she does it.

R&B songbird Ciara is back with that bangin’ body of hers and smooth vocals!
While we always appreciate a good R&B track, the beginning of the chorus is reminiscent of Janet Jackson’s Again and Ginuwine’s Differences!
Take a listen for yourself and check out the video for Sorry (above)!!
Either way, we do appreciate the old school vibe AND those signature seductive dance moves!
The track will be released to iTunes on the 25th and will be featured on CiCi’s upcoming album, One Woman Army due out this winter!

Talk about some good, old-fashioned R&B!
THIS is where it's at, folks!
Ch-ch-check out Usher getting all kinds of slowed down and wet with Victoria's Secret angel Chanel Iman in the music video for Dive, his latest single off of Looking 4 Myself (above)!
Honestly, we don't care that the yacht he is on seems to be flooding!
In the immortal words of Tina Fey: "I want to go to there!"
So, soooo SEXY!
