bring the 90's back man
Maybe when payola is eradicated and urban stations are independently owned again.
This just in...
Clear Channel sells for 18 Billion.
Hundreds of radio stations to be sold.
I like 90's music too but I'm more into the 80's.
I think the early 90's is my least favorite era of r&b.
A better question is where are the legitimate R&B groups? We don't have any Jodecis, iMX, New Edition, etc etc
The last R&B album I got that 90s feeling back in my blood was Donell Jones
To another conglomerate, so it doesn't matter... program directors will remain handcuffed.
The early '90s beats the current millenium era... you had Jodeci, MJB, Boyz II Men, Silk, Guy, R. Kelly, Xscape, Jade, Envogue (last great female pop singing group), Shai, Tevin Campbell (who was infinitely better than Usher), Hi-Five, Mint Condition, Mariah Carey in her prime... this was back when "hip hop soul" was still good.
The '70s is my favorite era, though... it had the best musicianship, the best singers and greatest diversity.
Right I know they sold to another conglom, but I believe that they were still selling hundreds of stations off.
I might be a tad biased because I thought Ush's debut was solid.
Though likely because of the all-stars who put it together.
Tevin's a better singer by miles... Usher gets by on sex appeal and superior dancing skills... he's Bobby Brown reincarnated.
I think you're being a bit disingenuous.
He's a much better vocalist than Bobby Brown.
He can and does dance, but he could easily be a more sophisticated artist.
His vocals can stand alone.
I liked Tevin Campbell during his day.
I'm personally a bigger fan of Usher's, though Campbell had more compelling material. And I think "infinitely more talented" is far too generous.
Dude, I just don't see it with Usher... not taking anything away from his talents as an entertainer... but as a pure vocalist, he's limited.
Igs you can be really stubborn sometimes.
No pyrotechnics, no choreographed dance steps...
Just a microphone and a stool.
