I hate modern R&B and like since the late 80's when singers wanted to be and look like rappers and be street but sing about girls and females and males like TLC they sucked.I can appreciate jazz and anything but I hate Beyonce,Ashanti and all these female singers but why does it have to be so sexual.men cant even sing with them whiney girl voices what happened to bass?

    I'm more disappointed in today's hip-hop than today's r & b.

    I really like what Frank Ocean is doing as far as R&B goes, that is probably the only R&B dude I listen to right now, R. Kelly (like him or not), his last album was real good IMO, had a very old school Sam Cooke sound to it

    Chris Brown and Usher need to get back to that REAL R&B and stop with all that HOUSE/TECHNO/ POP R&B 🤬 like Forever, Beautiful People and 🤬

    can we get back to actually SIGNING!?!?

    There was a time in the 90's when R&B was about as popular as hip hop is today. Now you can really only count on one hand the amount of R&B that is popular.

    So I can't hate on R&B right now, if anything I'd just wish there was more of it to choose from.

    if you hate whats called R&B then you are listening to the wrong thing. The Genre thats labeled NEO SOUL is the way to go. Heres recommendations.


    4 Ever More - Anthony David and ALgebra

    Gone and Never Coming Back - Melanie Fiona

    So In Love - Jill Scott and Anthony Hamilton

    MODERN R&B THAT DOES NOT SUCK!! all 3 of those tunes are 2011 releases!!

    I will bet your urban radio station isnt playing these. they are playing SUPER BASS by Nikki Minaj for the 100 million time!! theres good stuff out there you just have to look for it!!

    I would say it's about equal for me. Things changed long ago. I've been mostly listening to old school or "underground."

    Frank Ocean is koo and everybody on his 🤬 , but i think The Weeknd shyts better than his, the kid def a good addition...and yea, r'nb aint too bad nowdays i guess...Trey songz fell the 🤬 off from his 'anticipation' mixtape days, prolly due to him feelin himself way to much now, neyo still doin his thing and killed that pitbull song, mario non existant, but yea anthony hamilton and jill scott still doin they thing, don't look to bad...

    Hip hop def doing good to, i have to give it to Kanye, MBDTF and WTT are spectacular true to the essence hip hop albums which did very well commercially, The game's red album is also being massively slept on, that 🤬 is a banger, and it also got some commercial light, so i think if you look in the right places you will find some good music in both genres,


    ps: still listenin to Erykah badu's latest album, just had to mentioned that, that album's the 🤬 , so soothing and therapeutical...love that chick

    I believe the opposite of your statement right here. I haven't got on the hype with The Weekend yet. I listen to some of his songs and they were alright but I didn't find one I would repeat.

    The Weeknd is more of a downtempo artist, I wouldnt put him in the R&B category. But downtempo is tight tho, Drake even does a lil bit of it.

    INDIA ARIE>>>>

    she is so good and having a positive message in her music that is Not corny! She seems to be singing to all the underdogs in the world.
    The people that have been told you are too ugly, you are too dark, you are too this and too that. To stand up for yourself and believe in yourself!
    it makes too much sense so i guess that why your modern "urban" radio station isnt playing it.... whats that I hear? Super Bass by Nicki once again (Throws Up)

    yeah i basically do, yup (unless it's neo-soul)

    r&b is not r&b anymore, it's something completely different
