Rhythm & Bleus: Life, Love, and Heartbreak explores the eclectic and powerful music genre in written prose. The authors take inspiration from some of R&B's most moving, emotional, thought-provoking, and popular songs to discuss the intricacies of life, love, and heartbreak. Rhythm & Bleus, like the musical genre, takes the reader on an emotional and intellectual roller coaster through the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
