Top 10 Body Parts According to R&B

Since the beginning of R&B, songs have mentioned parts of the human body (remember Stevie Wonder’s “Fingertips”?), an interactive website that explores the relationship between the body and its visual and verbal representation, sampled thousands of songs and took a look at which body parts are referenced the most in different genres of music. Here’s a breakdown of the body parts R&B singers croon about most, and our favorite lyrics or song title mentions:

1. Eye – “Your heart has been broken, but I can still see true love shine in your eyes” (“Why Would You Stay,” Kem)

2. Hand – “I’ve been waiting all day to wrap my hands around your waist” (“There Goes My Baby, Usher)

3. Head – “When you got one to the head and then one more to the heart will make me feel alright” (“Love Gun,” Melody Thornton)

4. Arms – “And now as I look down, I see where I fell into your arms” (“Love All Over Me,” Monica)

5. Face – (“Love Faces,” Trey Songz)

6. Lip – “Baby, leave them lip prints on me tonight” (“Purple Kisses,” The Dream)

7. Hair – (“Whip My Hair,” Willow Smith)

8. Ass – (“Grown Ass Woman,” Kelly Rowland)

9. Fingers – “Let me run my fingers through your hair” (“Anywhere”, 112)

10. Knee – (“On Bended Knee,” Boyz II Men)
