While I am not wild about any of the formats, that is the only mainstream format that plays new r&b. I do appreciate that about it. In many urban areas, it is the most popular format according to all access radio.

Guess I haven't listened to radio in a long time. I have not heard any of these songs.

Charlie Wilson is the king of this format razz

The track by Stokley (Mint Condition) is on Jam & Lewis' Perspective Records, and "Damage" samples "Making Love In The Rain" (Herb Alpert), so the ex-Time members are doing pretty well at the moment.

"No Plans For Love" is a boogie song. Stokley has a Linn Drum and whimpering puppy synth lead.

Ella Mai and H.E.R are my favorite tracks off this list.
I like Ella Mai a lot. Love her English accent.
Stokley is my favorite artist off this list but Cascade does
much of nothing for me. I liked She and Vibrant much better.
I hope his forthcoming album features more like that.
Vibrant is a nice summer jam.
I'm scared to even listen to Trey Songz. I still got that image of him
fucking up the Prince tribute.
lol

I am only following the Adult R&B list which avtually represents real rhythm and blues and not hip hop. They messed up that chart bad and now actually starting to separate the list now.

Cascade by Stokley is funky as hell by the way. Jamming to it now. Nice Linn samples.
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

"Adult" R&B? Hell naw. That means it's a black version of boring bland midtempo stuff like Debby Boone, Barbara Streisand, Michael Bolton, Air Supply, etc. I hated it in the late 1980s and if I had been forced to play it, I would have thrown myself in front of Shitney Houston's tour bus. I sure as hell wouldn't listen to it nowadays while it's being made with Fisher Price instruments which makes it sound even worse.

Andy is a four letter word.

The local Adult R&B station plays hip hop, mostly old stuff from the 1980s & 1990s like Whodini & Heavy D. But I have heard the 2 songs that Cardi B & Bruno Mars did played regularly. Bit like I said above, they play a lot of Charlie Wilson new stuff ever since his comeback. Jaheim, Kem, & Johnny Gill are other acts that are often played.

This is another reason I also look at the "Top Album Sales" chart when I happen to look at Billboard and NOT the Billboard 200. You sometimes see HUGE differences in what physically sells as to what people stream. Now I get it, streaming is the way the majority consume music blah blah blah, we know this already. But theres huge issues to look at when streaming is tracked, how it counts, how you dont have to even listen to a full song or album to be tracked, how it registers MORE if you subscribe to a plan than if you dont. Which is interesting, SO if you are a person that does not subscribe but listens to full songs and albums etc...you are tracked less than someone who listens to half an album or thirty seconds of a song, wtf? So I decided show me "Sales" and the albums sales chart gives you physical cds, vinyl (which is soaring) and full digitial downloads (which are also slipping). What I was seeing were huge discrpancies, now of course you still see Taylor Swift doing well on both, we know they buy here just as much, but in the course of one month, Rock albums, from the Foo Fighters, the Pretty Reckless and Alice Cooper all were number one on the sales charts, now with the Foos they were still in the Top 10 overall, but the Pretty Reckless were number one but overall number 28, and Alice Cooper was number one in sales but number 50 on the Top 200. So it was more telling what genre still BUYS physical product, especially those with a loyal base. I can guarantee a huge change is coming in streaming, because during this pandemic artists couldnt tour so they focused on how much they were getting screwed by services, so I can easily see the costs of streaming services rising, lets face it, they are the only ones that have not, Netflix goes up a few times a year, so expect it to finally hit the music services.

Good call! I can't tell you how many awards seasons I see a nominee with no physical album.

And I believe Lana Del Rey has the number one selling vinyl LP by a female artist in the 2000's.

Someone clarify please.

My point is no airplay to speak of.

Airplay is almost irrelevant due to streaming now
