The Death of the R&B Group – YouKnowIGotSoul R&B Podcast Episode #33 (Special Guest Digital Black of Playa)
We’re back with another podcast. It’s been a minute since we had a special guest, so we decided to reach out to Digital Black of the R&B group Playa. If you don’t remember them, they had the hit single “Cheers 2U” and they also wrote songs for the likes of Aaliyah, Ginuwine and Nicole Wray. We started off the podcast by talking about Da Bassment and all of the artists that came from that camp. We also talk about Timbaland’s impact on R&B and whether it had a negative impact on the genre.
We also talk about some of the R&B artists who have gotten forgotten like Tevin Campbell and Al B. Sure. We discuss whether the impact of Jodeci and Mary J. Blige had a part in a lot of the New Jack Swing artists fading away. We talk the lack of R&B groups and slow jams in today’s industry. We also talk about Joe’s new album and whether it passed the YouKnowIGotSoul review.
For the food discussion, we discuss fried chicken and whether KFC is at the the top of anyone’s list. Being that Digital Black is from Kentucky, you would expect him to say yes but stay tuned.
