The-Dream Says Black Singer's In The U.S. Can't Do Soul Music Anymore "We Love Adele Singing It, But Beyonce Singing It? No, The Tempo's Too Slow."

 

The-Dream is the man behind tons of huge pop hits like Rihanna's "Umbrella," Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)," and J. Holiday's "Bed" to name a few. Because he is a songwriter and also a performer it's his job to take note of trends within the music industry. One trend that he's noticed that he finds kind of alarming is the lack of soul music coming from black entertainer's these days in the U.S.

 

"It's called rhythm and blues; they just took the blues out of it for so long. What's crazy is that blacks can't do soul records any more." he told the UK's Guardian. "We love Adele singing it, but Beyoncé singing it? No, the tempo's too slow, gimme the club hit. Now the blacks in America are responsible for the pop records, and everybody else is singing soulful records. It's weird to me. We're pigeonholed over there."


Take a minute to think about it. Is he right? Or is he exaggerating a bit too much?
