So true. I've seen R&B artists who've been in the game 20 plus years release albums with hardly no hype/marketing behind it because of what you just said.

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.
Spot on.

I like artists who stay true to themselves. That's why I'll always prefer a Maxwell to Usher.
