Few genres have changed so profoundly as R&B. Originally, R&B became popular among Afro-Americans as a form of jazz with a heavy beat added to it. At the end of the 20th century, singers like Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey combined elements of rhythm and blues, soul, funk, pop, hip hop and dance. Hip hop on the other hand emerged from the Bronx in New York City. It started off as a DJ talking through the music while he was mixing existing tracks together. One of the biggest MCs who put the genre on the map was Grandmaster Flash.
These genres have a fundamental Afro-American history behind them and continued to influence all contemporary genres to this day. Most tracks you hear in today’s Top 40 are borrow elements from hip hop and soul. Think of Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Rihanna, … Some of the greatest performers of our time grew up on this music.
