    I don't understand it... :skip:

    I'm not going to pretend like black people don't listen to Adele (judging from how many threads have been made about her)

    But how is she rap/hip-hop/r&b?

    I've even heard some black people try to say that Adele is R&B, which just lets me know that people don't understand what R&B is.

    This shyt baffles me :leostare:

    She has a soulful voice, that's pretty much it. It's the same reason Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran got played. Hip Hop stations basically mean anything black people fukk with in 2016.

    Yeah i've been noticing this trend more and more. Its not even like I'm saying you cant play her cuz she's white, but she doesn't even fit the genre.

    The problem is, where does this end? If you have a radio station for a specific genre, and adjust to just play what's hot, you might as well just have it top 40, genreless :yeshrug:

    Same reason why Eminem was able to get play on rock stations and rap stations when he came out. Ie Whiteness.

    Black people who like adele are sad as fukk to me.
    Black people who claim people like Sam Smith and Adele do black music better need to get the fukk out of my face. Or say they do real R&B.
    Black women who worship Adele come off as pathetic to me...when Adele is basically ripping y'all off. Shows how much black people value whiteness over their own...everything.

    But Adele isn't even R&B tho... that's what has me so confused. :mindblown:

    At the very least, Eminem rapped.
    I don't listen to Adele so maybe she has some secret R&B album that I've never heard, but that "Hello" song is not rap, hip-hop, or R&B... :camby:

    doesn't she make R&B though? what exact genre is her music? pop? she basically makes soul music, not like the original soul singers but it's in that similar category. i don't even listen to her but that's what it sounds like to me :yeshrug:

    whatever it is people seem to like it, i've heard other music playing on HOT 97 too before. shyt was sounding like some techno shyt and not even close to hip hop or r&b.

    I listen to a lot of old school R&B (James Brown stays in rotation for me).
    Adele has the B (blues), but her music is devoid of the R (rhythm).
    When I think of R&B, this comes to my mind.

    But then again, I think most of today's R&B is just pop slowed down and sung in falsetto :martin:



    :blessed:

    I don't know if Adele has ever had this sound.

    Yeah I agree Hello isn't RnB at all, reminds me of an old Cher love ballad:camby:
