当我通过校园走,我觉得我的脚步开始匹配慢歌醇厚阿波罗奥马尔在我3岁的Skullcandy的耳机响的节拍。
我绝对还没有赶上本Airpod趋势,但作为“unbothered”丹尼尔caeser流体结束,挑选了一个新的歌曲旋律的氛围,我知道,我是在新的音乐潮流随着这一波。
As a nineties ba通过 who grew up listening to Ryan Seacrest announcing the hottest summer singles on 2-hour road trips to Ocean City, I’m familiar with 替代 R&B’s predecessor.
这是碧昂丝WHO我如何区分教我从我的右边和左边阿丽雅了鼓励我来接自己了,再试试吧,如果一开始,我没有成功。
TLC让我知道如何避免擦洗和诚实,我不会让任何人都爱我的权利马里奥除非我了。我清楚在任何#throwbackthursday首歌会让你的心脏和陷入困境带给你回的时候,它是社会可以接受会对克里斯·布朗有好感精通。
It was these artists and many more who contributed and shaped the early 2000s wave of R&B music as a genre that glorified love and chastised those who couldn’t love right.
While I compile my Throwback Summer playlist with these artists, I float over another playlist titled, “Alternative R&B”. Generated 通过 Spotify, I take note of the artists and songs they qualify as members to this fairly new concept and indirectly realize the most obvious contrasts in the progression of this genre as compared to its past.
Rather than songs that exuded feelings of love and heartbreak, recent music labelled as R&B takes a more introspective approach to its lyrics.
Tones of alienation and excess have been the resounding topic of the music labelled underneath Alternative R&B. The Weeknd is the best example of this and has been one of the most celebrated artists within recent years. He consistently releases singles that are looped on local radio stations and streamed number 1 in numerous countries.
爱情和欲望,虽然抒情中不存在相同的格式为21世纪初的艺术家,在传统上完成,如节奏蓝调的曲风,还有一直存在的那渴望的感觉。
在ESTA体裁的变化最大的反差向往的这些感觉周围没有异性的单人为本。

他们是让人联想到,使新的方法来这种风格如此独特更电火花声音。似乎还有是在方法美味的音乐,这些艺术家的声音背后的戏剧。
While often discredited for being “PBR&B” or “Hipster R&B”, you cannot deny the obvious artistry used in the development of these songs. The lyrics are thoughtful and the music is emphatically fresh and current.
While Alternative R&B is only present as a mere sub-genre on Spotify, I argue that the artists that have manifested their careers from this sound have dominated the R&B scene and have contributed to a consistent sound that has been widely accepted into the public sphere.
Artists like SZA, Frank Ocean and Miguel have since released groundbreaking albums from less than five years ago to now, that have contributed to the evolution of this 替代 approach to R&B.
I look forward to the development of this new phase of a beloved genre and encourage its growth. As Alternative R&B continues to expand and encompass new artists with unique sounds, I urge you to take notice to this rise. Not only for the established voices of the genre, but also for underrated artists like UMI, Xavier Omar, Sabrina Claudio and Dijon who are very deserving of a place on your Vibes playlist.
