Rhythm and blues is a term describing popular African American music that originated in the 1940s. The term was originally used by record companies to describe recordings marketed predominantly to urban African Americans, at a time when “urbane, rocking, jazz based music with a heavy, insistent beat” was becoming more popular.

    @Goody-Jo Usher, CeeLo Green and Rihanna have actually common genre! head artists on this page are also pop. not because they play pop music (well, some of them partly do,but it doesn't change anything), but cuz they're popular you can differ rock music and do whatever you want. but i can't understand what you're doing here. are you hater or something? there's nothing on your page bout r&b or hip-hop, so why would you ever care? and how come you understand a thing about it then? and yeah, actually r&b differs like contemporary r&b, urban or pbr&b nowadays and it's a part of hip-hop, so everything is clear so it's definitely not you who has to talk about fake and real in hip-hop industry lol get away ;)

    @Varjomanaatti Tell me please what Usher, CeeLo Green and rihanna have in common, their music doesn't even belong in the same genre. Only that it's popular. Musical Genres develop into new genres. That why we differ Classic rock from modern rock. Even though Classic Rock influenced modern rock a lot. Please tell me how Ray Charles Influenced Beyonce to even call this modern rnb. Second of all is my taste in music way more widespread than most people on earth. So saying that my library isn't exotic is just plain wrong. You probably only looked at the top 20 or something and didn't recognise most of it so came to the conclusion that my general taste in music is narrow which makes me conclude you didn't even look to the Tag Cloud on the right of my page which clearly shows anything form Britpop, to Melodic Death metal and Hip hop to post-rock and industrial to Grunge. Last of all, let's be honest, Compared to these autotuning, not self creating popstars true RnB Artists are musicgods.

    Beyoncé is the queen of rnb, fuck what the fans of rnb singers "only USA" (Aaliyah, Brandy etc) say and think. After Whitney Houston, Beyoncé is the one that kept the r&b alive not only in US but around the world! Without selling herself to electronic beats like Rihanna and Kelly Rowland have already done. Or work with stupid producers like David Guetta, Dr. Luke and Max Martin!
