Black history is American history, especially when it comes to music. African-American musical traditions set in motion a culture that’s given us Jazz, the Blues, Rock n Roll, Funk, Disco, Soul, and Hip Hop.

Despite this evolution, for much of the 20th Century “Rhythm & Blues” was a blanket term applied to any music marketed to black audiences, changing meaning with each era. As Hip Hop entered the picture artists like Teddy Riley, Jodeci, and members of New Edition incorporated the new sound and style into a classic R&B template. Since then, the line between the two would continue to blur, influencing pop music forever.

Under The Influence shows how New Jack Swing married Hip Hop and classic R&B to give birth to something entirely new for the 90s, paving the way for today’s artists like Kehlani, Ty Dolla $ign, Dreezy, and Phantogram, while helping make millions of babies.

Vevo LIFT:

Our LIFT artist Aminé may be a skilled MC, but he’s also an impressive talent when it comes to making videos. A firm believer in the DIY aesthetic, the Portland, Oregon rapper directed his wildly popular clips for “Caroline” and “REDMERCEDES.” He also conceived and scripted his “Becoming” profile for LIFT – a glance back to his high school days. For the Stripped performance of his new track “Turf,” he takes us to the Alhambra section of East LA, choosing the aisles of a neighborhood grocery store as his stage. And talk about clever coordination – that’s a banana-yellow mic he’s using.
