We've talked about this in the Hip Hop and R&B threads, but for those that somehow stumble into this thread without prior knowledge, here's a little Q&A. International? This thread is mainly for Hip Hop and R&B as well as related genres performed in any language that isn't in English, or is performed in English but by artists from outside the UK, Canada, the US etc. You get it. What do you mean with "more"? And why just one thread for more than one genre? A: One dead thread is better than several. Also, as you will find out, genres like Hip Hop, R&B, Dancehall, Afrobeat and so on are increasingly combined by artists, especially in Africa, the Caribbean and parts of Europe (France, the Netherlands, among others). Similarly, a lot of German rap is heavily influenced by Turkish, Eastern European, Arabic and North African music, whereas a lot of current Swiss rap is influenced by music from the Balkans. Of course all these countries also have regular Trap, Boombap, R&B and so on. Does this mean I should post what I perceive to be pure Afrobeat, Dancehall and so on in this thread? A: No, we do have a dead thread for that: African and Caribbean Music • forum.chorus.fm. Only post if here if you think it's also somehow Hip Hop and/or R&B (including sub-genres, like Grime or Afrotrap), or if its performed by Hip Hop and/or R&B artists. So where do we start? I don't have a lot of time left, so I will start of with a small selection of 2019-ish songs I enjoy: Netherlands: Germany: Manuellsen ft. Rola - Halbmond im iPhone (prod. by Juh-Dee, Mesh, Frio) Switzerland: Pronto - SIDE WALK Japan: OMAE PETTY (Remix) (feat. MRSHLL) Friday Night Plans, JJJ, STUTS - PRISM France: Souf - Ça c'est fait (Clip Officiel) China: Higher Brothers - No More feat. NIKI You can also check out these Spotify playlists: German/Swiss/Austrian 2019 Dutch 2019 German/Swiss/Austrian 2018 Dutch 2017/2018 In the future I might just create a unified Spotify playlist for this thread, to keep it simple.
