Think about the R&B genre since 2001, and who comes to mind? Probably artists who pushed through from the 90s, such as Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey. Whereas if you think about artists who emerged a year later, there are plenty: Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Pharrell, etc. These artists all have a thing in common, and that is they broke the mould in R&B. They brought something different to the table, and changed the whole characteristic of the genre.
