This year a lot of R & B artists caught a break and starting popping this year. Even though some of the artists have been making music for years, this year they started to get a lot of attention. For instance:
H.E.R, has had an hidden identity for the longest until recently, it came out that her real name is Gabi Wilson. In 2010, she performed at the BET Awards, a Capella of “Fallin” for Alicia Keys. H.E.R. stands for Having Everything Revealed, which is ironic because she;s been keeping her identity hidden. Regardless of her identity, she makes great music. She falls in the category of alternative R&B with other artists such as Jhene Aiko, Erykah Badu, Kehlani, DVSN, Miguel, SZA, The Weeknd and plenty other artists. Her music has a soft soft with a bit of funk to it.
A1; you may know him from Love & HipHop Hollywood, but he not only produced songs or Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and K. Michelle BUT he also produced 13 songs on Chris Brown’s album, Heartbreak On A Full Moon. He is another individual who used his platform on Love & Hip Hop to showcase his skills and become more known in the entertainment industry. Personally, some of my favorite songs on the new Chris Brown alum were coincidentally produced by him.
