Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums (formerly Top R&B/Black Albums) is a chart published by Billboard magazine that ranks R&B and hip hop albums based on sales compiled by Nielsen SoundScan. The name of the chart was changed from Top R&B Albums in 1999. The chart debuted in the magazine as Hot R&B LPs in 1965, and were also called Top Black Albums; from 1969-1978 they were identified as Soul charts. The Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums tracks the albums of quiet storm, urban contemporary, soul music, R&B, new jack swing, hip hop, and sometimes house music artists. The current number-one R&B/hip-hop albums (as of the issue dated January 3, 2015) on the respective Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, Top R&B Albums and Top Rap Albums charts altogether are Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart? by K.
