R&B was first made in the 1960s in Detroit and its kind of like Hip-Hop but more jazzy and rocking and its kind of slow like you can slow dance to it sometimes and it has a lot of funk, soul, and pop and its lyrics focus heavily on the themes of triumphs, failures in relationships, and aspirations and that's how they came with rock and roll because of R&B.
