Alternative R&B

Alternative R&B (also referred to as alt-R&B, indie R&B, left-field R&B,[4] and originally known as PBR&B, hipster R&B, or R-Neg-B[5][6]) is a term used by music journalists to describe a stylistic alternative to contemporary R&B that began in the mid 2000s and came to prominence with musical artists such as Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, SZA, Khalid, and others.[7][8][9][10] It is considered to be "more progressive and diverse" than its mainstream counterpart.[11]
