[YEAR-END] Top 10 Non-Singles Of 2014

10. Banks – You Should Know Where I’m Coming From
ns10
Without question, this is one of Banks’ most powerful vocals (and songwriting) to date.


9. Nicky Da B – Thrifty Tale
ns9
The final release from Nicky Da B is a lyrical wordplay assault for any of his naysayers.


8. Katy B (feat. Sampha) – Play
ns8
Katy B’s duet with EDM producer Sampha is a smooth number that eschews notions of earlier SBTRKT and Little Dragon.


7. Willow Smith (feat. Jaden) – 5
ns7
Released at the beginning of 2014, Willow’s one-off song with her brother Jaden is a promising start at a debut album.


6. Ed Sheeran – Bloodstream
ns6
Ed’s album cut is one of the best male vocals of 2014.


5. Jennifer Hudson – Dangerous
ns5
The latest Jennifer Hudson album may not have made much sense, but the one song she didn’t have a songwriting credit for is a true standout.


4. Toni Braxton and Babyface – I’d Rather Be Broke
ns4
A solo song on Toni and Babyface’s ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce’ album turned out becoming the best R&B vocal of the year.


3. Lily Allen – Bass Like Home
ns3
As an unofficial theme to the 2014 London Olympics, Lily’s “Bass” is filled with some of the best Great Britain cultural references you’ll ever hear.


2. Ferras (feat. Katy Perry) – Legends Never Die
ns2
The beautifully written duet with Ferras and Katy is just too epic to not receive recognition.


1. Azealia Banks – Soda
ns1
Azealia’s creativity reaches new heights on this wonderfully arranged track about self-medicating.
