Rnb

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.

    @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!

    Brandy is an epitome of great R'n'B vocals. Beyonce is more crossover and eclectic, though I adore her, Brandy is still the classical 90s R'n'B voice and sound to me.

    @Goody-Jo Yes, because genres never change/develop and stay the same (the way you like them) for eternity, right? Wake the fuck up and stop bitching. Just becasue you don't like some artist doesn't mean it's not the genre it's under. Yes, many of these artist also make pop or more pop influenced rnb, but it doesn't change a fucking thing. It can still be rnb. And come on. Your library isn't that exotic so that you could shit on some artists just because you don't like the music they're doing. I'm not a fan of rnb especially, but you are fighting facts and logic and it pisses me off.

    none of this shit will ever be RnB. It's a disgrace for all Rhythm and Blues artists that ever existed. All music with this tag is just pop
