We’re back with another episode of the SoulBack R&B Podcast. The GRAMMY nominations came out so we touched on that, but most importantly we break down the process for listeners out there. We also talk about Coco Jones new EP. We also talk about Chris Brown’s “Under The Influence” and the success that it has garnered via Tik Tok. Lastly we talk about the state of Adult R&B and the challenge that veteran artists such as Usher face when trying to crossover to mainstream R&B. Lastly we go over some Gen Z slang words in hopes that we can connect with the younger R&B listeners better!
