“Beautiful” Mariah Carey & Miguel (2013)

Happy Sunday ya’ll.
I was working out this morning when this song came up on my Pandora playlist (love when I find gems like this).
While Mariah Carey was known for her break out in the early 90’s with classics like “Vision of Love” and “Dreamlover”, I love how versatile she is as an artist as she continued to work with other musicians/ producers in the urban scene. Mariah Carey was a huge fan of hip-hop and managing two blend such two seemingly unrelated genres together. Decades later, and she still continues to #slay breaking out in the charts while bringing her soul/church influences in pop artists today. #myhero¬†#bridgingthegenerationalgap

Contemporary R&B Artist of 2019

R&B is live and well.
The music scene has slowly evolved the past decade and (thankfully) we see that the radio continues to play music from artists who have R&B/ soul influences. I compiled a list of a couple artists who are making waves in the music scene today and have become some of my contemporary influences today:

Ella Mai
Shot Clock

H.E.R
Hard Place

Jojo
Just Say So
