For a number of years now many have strongly felt that r&b is dead while others say that the genre simply doesn’t get the recognition that is rightfully deserves. The BET network will be launching a online series called State of R&B that will bring together some of the genres influential faces to open up the discussion on the topic.
The 3 part online series will greatly go into detail of the 1990’s culture of the r&b sound. The panel will talks about how today’s technology has put the genre into a very stagnant place & then it’ll all end with how Music Heals The Soul. On each episode it will include a different panel of celebrities that will include Sevyn Streeter, LaShawn Daniels, & Elijah Blake. The series will debut on November 24th on BET.com/SORB.
