    RNB is alive and well but people seem to think melodic rap is rnb for some reason.
    the problem is no one cares to elevate real rnb acts,ill give some examples for contemporary rnb:







    a little older songs first one samples michael:


    h.e.r bruno mars kyle dion and much much more

    rap was always dirty and blunt to begin with its just that at this moment in time cardi b song is popping but men have been doing this in the rap game for decades its not a big deal at all

    also music in general got much more blunt as time went on its nothing specific to the present its just represented a little more in mainstream music at the moment bc of rap, the whole point of art is to keep pushing the mold which for music was worship music(religious music) at the beginning .
    and the youth is getting more blunt in conversation and i believe it has nothing to do with the music at all its more about slang and a bigger appreciation for honesty instead of being afraid to hurt peoples feelings so young songwriters mirror that in their writing.

    i love new jack swing.
    Some did a few songs about sexual intercourse? Some? What the OP is saying are facts. The majority of them sang about bedroom music. They weren't versatile with their song writing.

    Pre 90s R&B era majority them from Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston etc etc were singing about multiple topics and NOT just bedroom music.

    That wasn't the case in the 90s.
