Am I old? Or am I just in a mood? I find myself gravitating towards R&B music that I can feel. Is it the season? The weather is getting colder. I don’t think I’m alone, either. There’s been a renewed interest in R&B as a genre and a swell of new artists to explore along with it. Hip-hop began taking a turn for the melodic at the beginning of the decade and since the initial blending of hip-hop and R&B, the former has moved on, blending itself with other genres: pop, rock, country, heavy metal. While R&B still shows up in bursts across some of the biggest hip-hop records; it’s also beginning to reclaim itself and take back its own genre.
