As 2016 comes to a close, we'll be swamped with annual year-in-review lists until the top of next year. Rolling Stone released their list of the best albums of 2016, and Black women musicians were fairly well-represented.

Beyoncé's sixth studio album, Lemonade, was named the year's best. The legendary music magazine called the genre-defying project "a soul-on-fire masterpiece." Beyoncé made Lemonade a television event with an HBO debut.
A Seat at the Table, Solange's ode to Blackness, came in at number 11. Solange secured her first number one album with the set.

Rihanna's Anti came in at 25. Rih scored her 14th number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 with the album's lead single.

Alicia Keys' latest album Here  came in at 32.

In a great year for music, the representation is even more remarkable.
