Urban contemporary was developed through the characteristics of genres such as R&B and Soul. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: En Vogue

    Hi. I'm young singer-songwriter living in Poland. I really don't want to write all the shit 'bout how I love music and that I want to be able to continue making it. I just want YOU to listen to my stuff if you have some spare time. It's just a couple of minutes for you but something more for me. Thanks! https://soundcloud.com/stevanblack
