* In reference to a thread about JoJo where she was called an R&B singer (by a press clipping) when she performed at Arthur Ashe Kids Day a couple of years ago. ;)

I'm not surprised because these days hip hop affiliations will sell CDs. At mtv.com, are you able to view the Overdrive videos? You said earlier in the week that Europeans couldn't view the links I provided in my "Video Rewind" threads.

I still can't watch them! Overdrive opens, it plays the commercial (Easy, Breezy, Beautiful... Cover Girl :o) and then it just stops and doesn't show the video. It's silly. I should e-mail mtv.com. :shrug:

Anyway, back to JoJo. I think she was already put on the market as R&B, wasn't she? I mean, sure he first single was pop, but the rest of the album was leaning towards R&B far more than that single. Might just be me... her and Dre, I don't see it happening. ;)

If you want, try this:

When Overdrive opens, on the upper RIGHT, click on “Search Music Videos’. In the search field, type in Aaliyah. Your result should be 10 videos. Click on Aaliyah’s name and a list of her videos should appear. Click ‘play’ on one of them.

Hope it works! :)

Maybe in Europe but here she was strictly Hot 100 (pop). She did a version of SWV’s “Weak” that garnered no airplay on black radio. She's not bad. :)

I don't consider JoJo to be R&B.
I actually like her. I remember ordering her album from Tower the same time I ordered Christina Milian's album.
Both of these girls have infused R&B to their pop style but being fully embraced in R&B takes time.
I kinda got turned off a little on JoJo when I found her to be a studio artist.
She sang on Ellen the same year her album came out and she was HORRIBLE.
The Ellen show started putting on the credits while she sang. It was that bad.
I hope she has gotten better live.
She seems to be an ok actor though. That's good if she wants to branch out.

There seems to be a real difference between music genres everywhere. At times it's confusing. I mean, where does R&B end and does Pop start? Is only airplay related? And who makes the 'rules'? Is Beyoncé or Kelly Rowland R&B because they get support from Black Radio? Are they pop because they dominate the hot100? :shrug:

Out here in the Netherlands we didn't even have black or urban radio/tv until fairly recently. :(

In America when you consistently have bigger hits on the pop charts then on the R&B charts, you are a pop artist with an R&B edge.
When you consistently have bigger hits on the R&B charts then the pop charts, your an R&B artist with crossover potential.
Beyonce and Kelly are pop artists with an R&B edge who mostly get support from urban radio from their early days with DC when they were an R&B group.
Their support from urban radio varies form song to song.
A song like "Soldier" was embraced by urban radio.
A song like "Stand Up For Love" wasn't.


Joss Stone to me is a R&B/Soul artist. People can deny her that status if they like but noone really said anything until they found out she was white and a Brit.
She was a big hit on the urban AC radio stations in Philadelphia until some people found out she was white.
I guess they thought she lied to them. :lol:
She got no airplay from the pop stations and still doesn't.

This brings me to an artist like Mariah Carey... who has dominate ALL charts last year. But in the end, she was an even bigger hit on urban radio. Does this make her R&B. She used to be Pop with an R&B edge, did she cross the line entirely?

As for Joss. It's a shame she's not getting the airplay she deserves. That girl is awesome. I say her live in Amsterdam, early 2004. When not many people knew who she was. She was so cute and shy, hard to believe she's like a superstar now. Anyway... it's silly not to give the girl airplay because she's white. Guess that's how it works.

Good and accurate post from a radio perspective. :yeah: Destiny's Child has really had 2 careers: their initial R&B career and then the crossover career.
I don't think their Hot 100 fans even know about this album:

For many of them, "Say My Name" was the first DC song.

Joss is an R&B artist but her music is not radio-friendly. I was surprised that AC (older demographic) formats don't warm to her like they did Norah Jones but there wasn't a single from Joss that was "palatable" for their formats.

Mariah is the same artist as she was when she debuted. The difference is that her music and image is now completely R&B. Back then, she'd have both pop-ish ("Hero", "Love Takes Time", "Dreamlover") songs and R&B songs ("Don't Let Go", "Anytime You Need A Friend", "One Sweet Day"). In 2006, it's all R&B.

Silly, regarding Overdrive, it only works for people in the United States. I can't view them videos too. Same thing as you got, the ads and stuff but no content. MTV. :rolleyes:
