So, one thing I have been working on is my artistic vision- the things that I am really trying to say and what I am passionate about. It can take years trying to narrow down. I have often felt I was all over the place. I thought it was a problem, but in reality it isn't. I have found that a few categories I always stick with are History and Art. Preservation and Innovation at the same time. I want to one day be able to teach about those creative people that inspired me as well as inspire new generations with my creativity- be it photography, editing, writing, drawing, singing etc. At present I am continuing to learn the discipline it takes to truly master my skills with help from others online like @robertoblake While I work on developing my own original content, I will continue to share photos that I have edited to create something new of existing art.
Therefore, this is the first in the series of Very Important Women in R&B. I was working on an article for my blog in which I countdown the most accomplished women in the genre. The positions were based on how many top 40 entries each had amassed on the Billboard R&B/HipHop Song chart and only included women who began charting in the 1980s.
Time got away from me so now I will just show the newly edited pictures of the ladies and include some songs that are not the 1st few songs that everyone names when people mention the artist instead of countdown (some on the list have gained more chartings since I compiled the list). It is fairly safe to say that none of these artists have been knocked out the top 26 by new artist, only moved around within the list 😏The purpose is to bring attention to some of their music.
