The Death of R&B

Rhythm and Blues is a genre of music that emerged in the 1930’s from the urban hubs of America. Musicians like Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, and Mariah Carey are some of the most well known R&B artists. R&B was very popular in the 70’s, 80’s and even in the early 2000’s. Despite R&B’s popularity in the last decade, R&B is dying.
