    Black guy...white music

    So I am a black guy which obviously shouldnt matter but I would like to use that as a scope of reference. My black Culture has gone towards rap music that makes no sense and absolutely no more R&B music and love songs. But being in a vehicle (job related) with other cultures i have found 2 songs that I caught on the radio that i find to be super dope songs and they fill my R&B void that im feeling.

    the songs are
    James Arthur: Say you wont let go
    The chainsmokers: Paris

    I dont know why but to me those are some dope ass songs and i would really like for you guys to suggest some more songs like that for me to check out.
    thanks

    Basically anything on the Global top 50 on Spotify are songs like this. Generic shallow crappy pop tunes.

    Let country music fill that void. This song here is how a full grown man talks to a full grown woman.

    Is global top 50 narrowed down to love/relationship songs? Because thats what im looking for I have my hardcore rap music down packed. Its just Black music aint producing much R&B right now and thats what I want ya know? So since I heard those songs I wanted to dive into the white spectrum of music for my fix lol.

    Once upon a time black music was Jazz and Soul. Go back to that.

    I don't think there is white music or black music. Music is music. Jazz and blues originated in the African-American culture, for example, but today millions all over the world, of all colors, play it, and probably over a billion listen to it. It is a part of the world musical culture, it belongs to everyone.

    Sorry for the off-topic ranting, feeling like musing today (pun intended)!

    I didn't know music had a skin color setting.

    Install Spotify, search for the songs you like build from there get weekly mixes and explore further. The songs you mentioned are generally just the popular ones that tend to get aired all the time, so as others have said just going for the hit lists will drop you in that category.

    If chain smokers is your thing, you'll find plenty of similar artists in that mixup of pop and electro, martin garrix, zedd, clean bandit, lost frequencies, calvin harris and so on they all fall into that category of that type of "pop electro"

    It doesn't get any whiter than white nerd music. Instrumental white nerd music, at that.

    For that, you go to Two Steps from Hell. They have some "love" songs... kind of.

    a long time ago..around the time when the movie Armageddon (with bruce willace) came out...that was when i was fresh in the military..there was a song and for the life of me this is all i can remember but there was a part in the song (maybe) the course wheres there was words about a mountain...and also one thing about the music video there was a white guy sitting in a room explaining whatever that song was about but i know it had to do with relationship stuff...as a matter of fact the song was talking about like a mountain being in between them and their relationship or something like that but man that was a fire ass song too...its just been too many years for me to remember.
