4. "i mean, LOVE and POSITIVITY in R&B is dead." In response to In response to 0
people can argue the semantics of if the genre is dead.
but i think what diddy, tank, etc. mean when they say "r&b is dead" is where is the love and also, where's the commercial success.
there's still good r&b music, but it's not easily accessible for the most part, aka not successful in the traditional sense.
as far what gets put in a song? these days, it's a lot of toxic sex and relationship shit. or, even worse, it's the same shit the rappers are rapping about.
i mean, it all comes down to money. the powers that be in music are gonna push what's popular. rap took over music, and someone(s) decided that the more like the rappers the singers were, the better for the bottom line.
