What happened to slow jams?

So Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and it got me thinking, what the fuck happened to R&B music? Maybe I'm just not paying attention to newer releases, but compared to the R&B music of the past, modern R&B is hurting big time.

Don't believe me that the older stuff is better? Just check out the absolute fire that is our Downtempo Love Jams playlist. Here are five top tracks from the list to get you started. Happy Valentine's Day!

Willie Hutch - I Choose You (1973)


Guy - Let's Chill (1990)


Babyface - Whip Appeal (1989)


Bobby Brown - Roni (1988)


Surface - Happy (1986)


Visit the complete Metrowax Downtempo Love Jams playlist on youtube for more great slow jams!

Any opinions on why R&B has fallen off so hard? I have no idea, but I guess if there was a demand for it, they would still be making it, right? Maybe newer artists just can't hope to match these classic tracks, so they give up before they even start?

  21. Aspiration for government jobs are mainly in lower middle class and middle class. If you come from an affluent class or upper middle class then you will give a damn about government jobs.

  22. It's the Millennium boxing match or an abomination that spins in a cross code, but what we can say with certainty, in the end, is that it's happening. Once retired all-time great McGregor vs Mayweather Live boxer will take UFC star in Las Vegas.
    There has been what it feels like years of speculation about the McGregor vs Mayweather Fight, with so many name calling on both sides. But the two fighters have announced that it is in fact, in.
    Yes, that's right, a boxer with a 49-0 record against a man who has never taken part in a professional boxing matchup.
    Anyway, here you have everything you need to know about the McGregor vs Mayweather fight.
