The term "R&B" generally refers to hip-hop and reggae music from the United States, but it has evolved over the years to include a broader range of music styles and genres. It originally referred only to African American music but soon it began to refer to all African American music. Many people believe that the first use of the term R&B was actually to describe music for black dances, such as Samba and salsa. Eventually, it evolved to include music for the home and for the soul. The music of this genre often contains rhythm elements from other cultures, especially music from the West Indies and Latin America.
One of the earliest songs to incorporate a rhythmic beat was Fats Domino's "Blue Moon of Kentucky." "Blue Moon of Kentucky" is an example of early R&B that is considered to be classic. Other popular rhythm and blues songs that have been covered by the music of R&B are "Mystery Train," "Give Me The Reason," and "Famous Mothers" by The Monkees. In recent years, urban music has been greatly influenced by the music of R&B, most notably by rappers such as Kanye West and Jay Z.
Today, there is a great deal of crossover interest between modern day R&B and hip hop and rap music. Many of today's popular rap songs contain a rhythm and blues flavor, many of which have become major hits in their own right. Hip hop and rap artists commonly incorporate a great deal of rhythm and blues into their music because of the influence of rhythm and blues players such as Blind Willie McTell, Aretha Franklin, and countless others. Most popular music of the late seventies and early eighties, including many of the top hit songs from that time, also incorporate some degree of rhythm and blues into their lyrics. This is evident in songs such as "Who's That Lady," "I Remember You," and "I Forgot to Remember to Forget."
