GENRE: R & B
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, Beyoncé, 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!
- Submit your original R&B inspired song to be considered for placement.
- Your song must not be previously released by a label or publisher – and you must control 100% of the rights.
