Keith Sweat is one of the better known artists in today's R&b/Soul scene, captivating audiences worldwide with his take on the genre.

In the late 1940s, a more upbeat style of blues and African-American music was becoming popular. The terms used to describe such artists before no longer applied and as the trend towards a more urbane sound grew, the term R&B came into use. Gospel, soul and funk were all captured under this new ‘umbrella’ music genre for several decades until a more contemporary and separate style developed in the 1980s. Nowadays, R&B is combined with other genres such as rock and pop by artists all over the world, but certainly retains elements of the soul and funk styles of the 70s from which it came.

Soul music also came to the fore in 1950s America and was predominantly performed by African-American artists incorporating elements of gospel, funk and R&B. Where R&B has since deviated towards the more prolific genres of rock and pop, soul remains close to its gospel roots. Artists such as Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson were among the forefathers of the genre. While hip hop and R&B might be more popular in the charts nowadays, the live soul music scene is still a very vibrant one.
