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?
