Mar 27 2014, 17:49 di CapricornSun33Introduction - What is Contemporary R&B?
Is there any other genre as misleading and as badly defined as Contemporary R&B? (except for smooth jazz).
- Ask your friend or neighbor what they think of Contemporary R&B and chances he/she will say that it is nothing but "commercial music for the clubs with lots of naked chicks, bling bling and luxury/alcohol brands in the videos".
- Ask your parents and they will probably tell you it has nothing to do with the real R&B.
- Ask a stranger in the street about which Contemporary R&B they are aware of and I can bet they'll tell something like "Rihanna, Chris Brown, Jason Derülo, The Black Eyed Peas, Flo Rida, Pitbull, Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber" or maybe even "David Guetta or Lady Gaga"... :/ In other words, a mix of pop, hip-hop and dance.
A few years ago, the answer would have been pop-rappers such as Nelly or Ja Rule or people like Akon, Sean Paul and Jennifer Lopez. …
Gen 23 2014, 4:26 di tiffpennYear after year we have waited for a new D'Angelo album. And now a glimmer of hope: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfTEa0xObSA This ten second clip is giving me Level 42 meets Prince feels, which is a good thing. Hopefully this year will bring new music, but more importantly, let's all hope that the demons have been kept at bay that caused the unfortunate delays in the first place.

Ago 19 2012, 23:57 di Xtina25Sat 18 Aug – The Liberation Tour: Mary J. Blige and D’angelo
If you get a chance to see this tour, go! I'm glad they decided to kick off the tour in VA Beach. Melanie Fiona, D'Angelo and Mary J. Blige were excellent. I'd already seen Mary J. in concert years ago so I went to see D'Angelo. My biggest disappointment was how short D's set was.
Melanie Fiona was up first. Her set was about 30 minutes. She had a full band with backup singers. People familiar with her music know that she can sing live. Her set included: "4AM", "Bones", "It Kills Me" "Change the Record", and "Wrong Side of a Love song"
D'Angelo went on next. What can I say? I've waited over 10 years for this moment. His usual band was with him. (Pino Palladino, Jesse Johnson, Kendra Foster etc.) He came through from the back of the arena. Thanks to security for the heads up. :) I was 10 feet from him as he climbed the steps to the stage. Of course he was superb. His voice was better than ever. …
