I agree with this statement. Many of these black/R&B artists are "going pop" which today means create dance/techno music because it's what's popular, get's airplay, and makes more money. Smart moves for their careers and pocketbooks as my dad would say but the artistry leaves something to be desired imo. The thing is if artists like Usher, Chris Brown, and Rihanna, and even Beyonce and Justin Timberlake released more R&B centered music I think they could put more eyes on the genre as a whole and sort of breath more life into it because they are so popular.
