R & B Contest

Indaba Contest Page

Whether it’s classic Motown era R&B or cutting edge EDM inspired R&B, the genre has dominated the Pop charts ever since its inception. Today’s music couldn’t exist without artists like Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye, BeyoncĂ©, Stevie Wonder, and Smokey Robinson. If you listen to Chance The Rapper’s new album “Coloring Book”, “To Pimp a Butterfly” by Kendrick Lamar, or or anything by Drake, you will hear R&B’s influence over today’s biggest artists. Now its your turn to set the mood and show us your best R&B inspired track!

  • Your song must not be previously released by a label or publisher – and you must control 100% of the rights.
