The legend himself with a r&b podcast I ain't seen this coming but I'm subscribed
This is AMAZING!
loved this first episode. Honestly there is nothing like this that deals with R&B in this way. Kris and Rob have a day one fan right here. Can't wait for the next episode.
R&B Lovers, This One's For You!
As someone who goes by the nickname "theoldschoolkid" due to my obsession with 90s R&B, you can imagine how pleased I was to hear Rob pose the classic debate: Jodeci vs. Boyz II Men in the first episode. Rob & Kristin say what we're all thinking about classic and current soulful artists and offer a thoughtful, fresh perspective on searching for quality during a day and age where good jams have become too hard to find. Love it!
