Contemporary rnb music on the radio

Contemporary RnB or simply Rhythm and Blues has been around since the 1940s, but it wasn't until the 1980s and 90s that it became a dominant force in popular music. Today, artists like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Bruno Mars, and The Weeknd continue to push the genre forward, blending elements of soul, funk, and pop into their music.

One of the most successful contemporary RnB artists of recent times is Beyoncé. Her music, which often deals with themes of empowerment and feminism, has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including 28 Grammy nominations and 24 wins. Other popular artists include Rihanna, who has sold over 250 million records worldwide, and Bruno Mars, who has won 11 Grammy Awards and sold over 200 million records.

If you're a fan of contemporary RnB, there are plenty of radio stations that cater to the genre. In the United States, stations like WBLS and WQHT in New York City, and WVEE in Atlanta are popular choices. In the United Kingdom, stations like BBC Radio 1Xtra and Capital XTRA play a mix of contemporary RnB, hip-hop, and grime. And in Australia, stations like Nova 96.9 and KIIS 106.5 in Sydney, and KIIS 101.1 in Melbourne play a mix of RnB and pop.

Whether you're a longtime fan or just discovering the genre, contemporary RnB continues to be one of the most exciting and innovative styles of music today.
