Debate: 90's RnB or Today's RnB?


Let me say that I am a RnB chick all the way. Yea, I love Hip-Hop, but let me hear a RnB song that puts in the zone and I will listen to it a million damn times. There's been a debate for a long time as to which era of music is better -- 90's or now.

In the 90's, RnB was the SHIT. Everyday, I find myself takin' it back, listening to SWV, Xscape or older Mary J. songs. Its that feeling that you get when you hear it. To this day, "Who Can I Run To" by Xscape, "Just Wanna Please You" by Mona Lisa, "Why I Love You So Much" by Monica are still my fave songs. You had the men killin it too, like R. Kelly's "I Cant Sleep" or Dru Hill's "These Are The Times". Damn, I miss those days.

Today, music is definitely different. Of course as time evolves, so will else everything in the world. Dont get me wrong, there are songs that come out now and I'm like "wow, that's that shit". But the quality to me, is not the same. Back then, you had actual SINGERS, not just pretty faces or the ability to move. And the lyrics were deeper, had more meaning.

But, I will always love RnB, no ands, if or big ass buts about it.

Now I pass the debate onto you -- which do you like better?

Definitely 90's because they were influenced by the great oldies from the 60's, 70's, and 80's.

Now in this decade, everything is about material value -- sex, club hopping, bottle popping, who can get the most digits, what car you riding in, etc.

On a content level and something you can relax to, definitely the 90's, it's a reminder of the good ol' days.

But if you just wanna get hype, today's R&B will do.
