This is not even half of it, but I tried to control myself, with the listings, because, I can go on and on, lol. But, I didn't, hope people find more artist to like from my list, enjoy. Hard to choose, there is so many, but I will just put these few. I am an American. No, I do not speak multiple languages. I don't have to understand a language to enjoy it, and you miss out on a lot, if you just want to listen to your own language. Besides, it's fun looking up lyrics translations, well that's just me, I know everyone does not have similar taste as me, but hopefully, it open your eyes a bit to other artist from all over.

It's up to you. When, l saw the title of your group, and whenever I think about it, I think of Hip Hop and R&B as universal. Just wanted to share with everyone that it is loved by lots of countries, lol. So, do you mean have a seperate topic for it? It be awesome to have a seperate group for it, it might give others a chance to check out someone new, and definetely, if they live in a another country besides US, and have favorite R&B Artist from their country, they could list it as well.




Should we limit the poll to only to US, & keep the forum International?? Lemme kno -- crasyjak



I want to say no, lol, but I think my answer is Yes at the time it should just be for US, because I do not think there is going to be any votes for International, until people get to know and check out some of the videos for themself. So, a forum would be good, and maybe after awhile, if the International forum does get to be long, and people are adding singers or rappers and commenting, then maybe later, it could be added to the polls. Because my only concern was getting the message out there that there is awesome rappers and R&B singers from all over, and just having a forum for it is awesome because either way it goes, it's letting members know about other artist from other countries, and might get them interested to listening to Foreign Rap and R&B.


Please don't double post. There's an edit button if you want to add something on.

I expected atleast International^ (btw, there's an edit button, don't triple post XP) to mention Corneille. He's the BEST french rythm n blues singer. Evar. He also sings in english though.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YwNh3XUb7o

I agree with international, though, we don't need to understand to listen to good music, but it's more enjoyable when you understand Corneille ^__^

I don't know if anyone mentioned Jojo... she's a white RnB singer. But she also sings pop, so I don't know. But i like her.

And actually, I think yes, international siingers should be counted, doesn't really matter if they get votes or not, it's better to just group all sorts of music together.
