Maybe the Dream should stop writing these singers songs like "Birthday Cake"?

He should know since his whack a.ss can't make a soul record for sh*t. This dude is garbage as fu*k. Only stupid hoes like his music. Normal people don't like hearing whining over horrible beats.

Excuse my posting
Black ppl have always been musically/dancing inclined, even before the slavery days. It's like a surreal emotional bond that we share. Call me a music fanatic but we started to lose ourselves when we lost touch with our music's quality and content. Ain't nothing like good music on your best or worst day. Look @ the impact Whitney's death had and still have on this world because of her music.

Everybodys posting up Maxwell, D'angelo and Anthony Hamilton, all top artists and some fo my all time favourites but in a commercial sense he's right. Theres no soul in Chris Browns last album its pop music verging on dance (yeah x 3 as an example).

Adele and Amy made their name off of real soul records. No one wants to hear about Beyonce claiming poverty when she's rich or heartbreak when she's blatantly in a relationship with a good man who'd do anything for the chick.

IS THE SAME THING IN HIPHOP. RAPPERS USING AUTOTUNE TRYING TO SING AND BE MORE POP NOW.And the white rappers like Eminem can be hardcore come out with songs about k!lling kim and diss songs about popular singers like Mariah Carey. MGK for instance even tho we kno he's soft hes not POP at all he raps like a hiphop rapper,but he's not good.Most of the rappers that win Grammys now have a pop type song. Jayz and Kanye, ESPECIALLY KANYE win all these grammys for a reason.

These white folks stole this country from indians,they stole Rock n Roll and Soul from us. And now they're doing it to hiphop. Because the majority of the consumers of music ARE WHITE.I TOLD ALOT OF IDIOTS this is why Eminem's record sales are always high. The majority of his fanbase are white.Aint no n*gga breaking his neck to by no damn Eminem Cd.

A black guy rapping hiphop like it should be rapped now,makes a white think he's a gangster stereotype and wont be as marketable,but in their eyes it doesnt look as bad if a white guy does it and will make them more money. I tried to tell alot of idiots on here this,but they never listen.

I dig what he saying, the top r&b artists are pop, but it's a double edge sword you do music to make money and pop is selling for blacks right now. Just like that last Beyonce cd, it didn't sell like the rest because it was more soulful that usual.

And none of them were as successful as Adele has been within the past six months.
