Fifth Stream (1990s-present)

Even though R&B was established in the 1940s, its music is still very alive and relevant today. Contemporary R&B artists are women and music groups. R&B transformed itself and adapted to the change in times; the music from every stream is unique and innovative. This genre of music consists of rhythm, blues, and soul. All of these songs tell stories about love, life, struggle, and any other emotion a person can go through. Personally, I enjoy streams 3-5 the most; I grew up listening to all kinds of R&B music and artists.
