Golden Age of R&B

For those who do not know, R&B stands for “Rhythm and Blues”. The genre originated from previous types of music, including blues and soul. On the other hand, while blues was known to be dark and somber and soul was known to be introspective and personal, R&B added energy, upbeat tempos and rhythm, making for a more uplifting and engaging listening experience. R&B songs were tracks that you could dance to and the genre truly exploded, particularly thanks to the work of influential singers such as Otis Redding, Etta James, Aretha Franklyn and many more. R&B was absolutely explosive and very diverse, as the genre also got easily contaminated with other influences, particularly pop and vibe. For example, singers such as Ben E. King were able to harness the appeal of orchestral pop, which was popular at the time, and combine it with R&B elements. On the other hand, performers such as the legendary James Brown were able to take R&B to a whole new level, by merging it with the grit and energy of funk and motown. If you want to give someone a playlist with lots of soul, emotion, energy and passion, give them this mixtape as a gift!
