Are R&B artists insecure? Are there too many gimmicks and too many features instead of focus on solid and classic music? A panel of artists and industry movers and shakers sat down for a Grammy Conversation recently and a lot was said about where R&B is today.
"The state of R&B is insecure," Grammy nominated singer/actor Tyrese said during the discussion captured by This Is RNB. "R&B today is about the gimmicks, who's featured, who produced it… not about the song."
In addition to Tyrese, Ledisi, journalist Gail Mitchell, producer LaShawn Daniels and Liv Warfield participated in the discussion hosted by Quddus at West Hollywood Soho House.
