Spotify Announces R&B First Nights Concert Series Featuring Victoria Monet And FLO!

R&B “Rhythm and Blues,” is one of the most loved genres of popular music that originated in African American communities in the United States. It is characterized by its soulful vocals, intricate melodies, and strong, danceable rhythms. Over time, R&B has evolved and incorporated elements of funk, soul, pop, hip-hop, and electronic music. It puts a significant impact on popular music and culture and continues to be a popular genre today. Adding to its fame, Spotify has announced R&B First Nights concert series.

This is a program organized to support all the rising R&B artists by connecting them with fans through a live experience. Through R&B First Nights, Spotify will partner with emerging acts to support their first live show across selected U.S. cities like California and Atlanta.
