The former Kennis Music star gives us a phenomenal explanation why RnB has the widest appeal cause its in everything you call COMMERCIAL.
I know you'll say of course Capital F.E.M.I will say that, he's R&B to the core and he'll bleed for R&B.
That's actually true LOL. Who else better to write this than yours truly?
Let me get it in. Everyone is an R&B lover one way or another. I can name songs, artistes and you will fall in love all over again.
If you put 10 people in a room and ask them to hand you their phones, 9 out of 10 you'll find an R&B song and the self acclaimed "streets" are also included in this statistics.
Believe me they know Joe, Tyrese, Tank, Donell Jones, Brian Mcknight, Marvin Gaye, BoyzIIMen... the list is endless. Mark my words!!! They have these classic songs on their phones.
Peeps don't get it twisted. what I am here to have you digest is the fact that RnB is not dead, it has simply EVOLVED.
R&B is in everything. When I say everything I mean in other genres of music. It's actually sleeping around and giving birth to different forms of R&B. Like Hiphop / R&B, Pop / R&B, Jazz / R&B, Rock / R&B and Afro/ Pop/ R&B hope your following.
You'll say prove it, here I go: Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Beyonce are all Pop /R&B; Chris Brown, Trey Songz are all Hiphop/R&B, and 2Face Idibia, Banky W, Wande Coal, Tiwa Savage are all Afro/Pop/R&B.... Catch my drift?
Let me take an inch further. One of the biggest songs in 2014 was "Loyal" by Chris "Breezy" Brown and it was HipHop / R&B. To bring it back home in "Naija," your favorite song at the moment is probably influenced by the genre I love, you love and you didn't love until now. "Woju" by Kiss Daniel at the moment is the song raining reigning now and guess what it's Afro/ Pop/ R&B but we call it "Commercial Music"
Commercial music is not a genre it's just a word given to music with wide appeal. R&B has the widest appeal cause its in everything you call COMMERCIAL. R&B is living through different forms of genre and it's doing very well. So it's not dead it can't be killed not now or ever.
The faithfuls are out there, the lovers are endless, the soldiers don't die, they multiply, from Junior and Pretty to Paul Ik Dairo , to Eddy Montana to 2Baba, to P Square to Dare Art Alade, to Banky W to Timi Dakolo to Tiwa Savage to Waje, to Praiz and from yours truly Capital F.E.M.I.
See y'all later
