How R&B music has evolved from the 90’s to today?

The R&B is basically known as the Rhythm and Blues. It started in the 1940s. The initial stages were not much popular in that ear but with the passage of the time, several changes in this genre made it become popular all around the world. Several basic and advanced changes were made to this genre at different times but after the 1990s a tsunami of changes appeared and this genre went through several incredible changes in a very short span of time.

The changes that are made to this genre after the 1990s are more than the changes that were made from 1940s to 1990s. This genre is still going through several changes and the new tones and beats are being added to this genre. This journey will keep going and nobody knows where it is going to end.

We will only talk about some brief changes because we can’t cover the details of all changes in a single article. So, here are the changes that are made to R&B music after the 1990s.

The imagination of America’s youth became the most important element of the R&B music in the early 1990s. We can say that it was the time when the R&B music started to become homogenized. The top producers of that era also participated in making it homogenized. This was the era when new artists like Mary J. Blige, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, Aaliyah, TLC, R Kelly, and Usher started becoming popular while the old artists started moving away from the list as their music did not get many hits as it used to receive in the past.

In 2004, the R&B music started beating all other genres and it started appearing in the top 10 lists all around the world. This new change was really shocking for most of the artists. 2005 to 2013 was the time when several changes were made to the R&B Instrumentals and this was the time when a wide range of new beats was introduced in the R&B industry. In 2010, most popular rappers Fetty Wap and Drake brought a new change to the R&B music and they played an important role in opening new doors for the genre.

These popular rappers made a lot of effort in mixing up the hip-hop and R&B and finally, they became successful in introducing something really interesting. Now, almost all the youngsters love to listen to the latest form of R&B music. This will music genre will go through several other changes in the future.

What’s the difference between hard rock and heavy metal band?

Hard rock is usually based on blues while the metal has its roots in classical music. It means that if you want to hear the classical music, you can enjoy metal because in metal songs the scales are usually used the same as that of classical music.

So, classical music is kind of the backbone of the metal songs and the progression in the songs is also relatable. In the same way, the template used in hard rock songs is same as used in blues and scales choice is also relatable among these.

The competition is high in metal as compared to hard rock. This competition is based on the skills that metal songs require and due to these skills, the drummers and guitarists also get attracted to metal.

The technical skills of a metal musician are way better than the hard rock musician on average. Hard rock music doesn’t require a high degree of vocal skills and some of the metal singers are also opera trainers.



Metal requires more talent than hard rock. It is due to its complexity and high competition. The amount of struggle may remain the same but the quality of work needed to develop the comparative skills is different.

Hard rock can represent a music culture but metal cannot be the famous music culture. When we turn on the radio, we never listen to any metal song there. Also, if you go to the mall, you don’t hear any metal over there too. The hard rock is more common than metal.

Hard rock is slower as compared to metal and hard rock sounds little happier than metal which feels like more sad and deep.

Hard rock is little less diverse than metal. You will feel a clear difference that in rock music, the musician plays the same template multiple times over and over again, while in metal, the scenario is completely different as it involves unique experiments. Hard rock is usually more fun than the metal and metal includes more serious themes.
