Back in the 1990s, the hip-hop and the R&B scene were blossoming, garnering public and critical acclaim for the very first time out of the underground circles. Rap music was initially a counterculture youth-orientated genre, and R&B was considered music for old timers. However, hip-hop artists always paid tribute to their R&B influences, shining a light on an incredible musical heritage and allowing new artists to embrace the R&B sound and bring it to new depths. Performers such as Destiny's Child, Dru Hill or Boyz II Men set out to re-invent the R&B genre, buy re-invigorating it with the fresh energy of hip-hop, while retaining beautiful melodies and a timeless feel. It did not take long for R&B to climb the charts and define the music tastes of a generation, with smooth vocals, incredibly appealing hooks, infectious grooves and great dance-floor friendly vibes.
