What R&B can do for you!Edit
R&B music for a lot of people that are going through everyday issues that some of us at some point or everyday have to face such as break-ups, unfaithful partners, crime life, struggles, and poverty can reach out to your heart and in a way give you the strength to carry on. Elements of R&B such as Strong demanding but similar lyrics, various sounds ranging from up beats, motivational beats, angry beats and slow beats can bring the true self out of us and teach us to accept us the way we are. It also teaches a lot of people to stand up for what they believe in and to not tolerate any form of disrespect for anybody regardless who they are and how much you love them.
Focuses of R&B Edit
What makes R&B so! relateable is what the songs and beats focus on. It Focus on emotions and themes that occur in our mainstream and non-mainstream society such as...

Techniques of R&B Used to RelateEdit
Lyrics- Lyrics are the strongest form of relation to others that R&B uses as famous Lyrics such as ...
"Hey yo I don't even know you and I hate you See all I know is that my girlfriend used to date you How would you feel if she held you down and raped you? Tried and tried, but she never could escape you
She was in love and I'd ask her how? I mean why? What kind of love from a nigga would black your eye? What kind of love from a nigga every night make you cry? What kind of love from a nigga make you wish he would die?" From rapper Eves song (Love is Blind) which is based on abuse directs its efforts on to those who are suffering the same situation depicted in the song. she speaks directly in the song and states this issue openly with no hessitaion.
Music Videos- Instead of using symbolic imagery in the music video R&B music uses reality and what it actually looks like to be in the situation depicted in the song.
Beats- Beat can also be a strong technique as it can be both uplifiting and emotionally realteabel dependant on what the song is trying to say.

R&B and... Edit
There are different types of R&B music. We have R&B mixed with hip-hop, rap, etc. For some people, their favorite type of R&B are the beautiful soul/r&b songs. You can feel the emotion in the lyrics. One song, full of soul/r&b can change the way you feel. Soul/R&B music speaks out to the public with it's strong vocals and touching lyrics.
R&B is better Edit
For many, R&b is better than Hip-hop because R&B always has a cause and it's never bad. It's like it's talking about the good old days. R&B is above anything that is pretty. R&B is living soul. There is nothing that would make me feel better than R&B especially if your having a really bad day.
It's About The LoveEdit
R&b music is filled with love songs. R&B usually likes to focus on love and things of that sort. I think that's beautiful because unlike other music filled with nonsense, R&B actually talks about things that people can relate to. I'm sure anyone who had been in love has listened to love songs and related to them. R&B music can set the mood and bring out the lovers in us.
|Aaliyah||Aaliyah was one of the greatest singers ever! She was wonderfully talented, and had a beutiful heart. Her voice was amazing (and still is) and her words were strong.|
|Ashanti||Ashanti is a favorite R&B singer. For one, she has a lot of people trying to bring her down, and she's showing you that she's going to keep surviving whether you like it or not. She doesn't care that people don't like her because all some people do is judge. She's the one getting that fat check at the end of the day.|
|KCi & JoJo||K-ci & JoJo deserve to be recognized as one of R&B's finest duos. Their voices are absoloutely incredible. They have been around for a while already. Even though many young people look them by, they shouldn't. Anyone who listens to R&B should own a K-ci & JoJo cd because they truly are the kings of R&B.|
|Mariah Carey||Mariah Carey is someone who most people look up to because of her voice and the words that she uses to describe the feeling of the song. She's an artist who has a lot of talent and dignity. She is a good role model and a very talented person. Mariah Carey is one of the top singers in the music industry.|
|Mary J. Blige||As the queen of R&B, Mary J. Blige has earned her spot as the number one R&B singer. Her voice is unbelievable. She has gone through a lot in her life and deserves everything she now has. Many singers try to be as good as her, but there will only be one Mary J. Blige.|
