Genre research

  1. 1. • Rhythm and Blues, which is known as R&B, was founded in the 1940′s by the African American music. R&B was predominantly for the African American race. It was originally called “race music” and was usually only performed or listened to by the black race. R&B was a combination of jazz, hip hop, gospel, and the blues
  2. 2. Where did the genre originate from? • R&B music originated from black Americans in the early 1940's growing from the blues meeting urban beats. By the 1970s, rhythm and blues was being used as a general comprehensive phrase to depict soul and funk. New Orleans was one of the early hotbeds of the music genre.
  3. 3. • When you look at how R&B used to be music wise and how it is now they are two completely different things. R&B and hip hop music today has a different toll on our generation today and also has a greater influence. In the 1950′s R&B was about good times, with music that had lyrics with actual meaning, content, and not just something with a good beat.
  4. 4. Artists that fit in this genre From left to right Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Mary J Blige, Usher and Justin Timberlake.
