Ne-Yo Discusses the State of Today’s R&B Music

Ne-Yo’s entire collection of music videos and audio tracks will be featured throughout the month of February across Music Choice Music Channels, On Demand and on their app.

They will be sharing clips of the conversation with Ne-Yo along with a playlist of his favorite songs.

In the interview, Ne-Yo reflected on how R&B has changed and evolved over the years:

“To be honest with you the concept of what R&B is has been lost a little bit…just a little bit. Just behind the fact that R&B stands for Rhythm and Blues. A lot of experimentation in regards to rhythm and cadence and stuff like that…but uh, just the blues element of it…the vibe of it,” he says. “There are some cats out there that are definitely trying to keep it alive and there are some cats that have embraced the evolution of…there is nothing wrong with embracing the evolution of. If you listen to R&B from the ’50s vs. the R&B from the ’60s vs. R&B from the ’70s it changes – it’s supposed to change, it’s supposed evolve with the times and the people we get that. But at the same time, the foundation of R&B has been lost a little bit but is trying to swing back this way. I feel like it’s trying.”
