It seems like Usher and The Weeknd are the only cats who consistently drop up tempo tracks but it seems like you don't hear a lot of it on the radio these days.
Now there are plenty of Hip-hop songs with singers and R&B vibes and Pop songs by black and white artist like Doja Cat but I guess I am not counting that as R&B (I may be splitting hairs). For example, is Get Lucky by Daft Punk an R&B song? Which reminds me there are a few retro white boy acts like Tuxedo and Mayer Hawthorne who do uptempo R&Bish songs, but am I missing something or am I right that there isn't a lot of uptempo R&B being churned out these days?
