New jack swing

New jack swing is a hybrid style popular from the late-1980s into the mid-1990s, which fuses the rhythms, samples and production techniques of hip-hop with the urban contemporary sound of R&B. It uses mellifluously soulful solo or harmonizing vocals sung over rhythms and “street” beats derived from urban musical influences. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Boyz II Men

    Not going to lie--this is my 3rd favorite genre (following queercore & new wave). SWV, Lisa Lisa, and Rhythm Nation era Janet. Wow.
