Fun Fact… Hip Hop and R&B are the most dominate genre.

That’s according to Forbes.

For the first time in the history of Nielsen Music’s measurement of consumer activities, the combined genre of hip-hop and R&B has dethroned rock as the top genre in the United States, according to Forbes.

Nielsen reports that 25.1 percent of all music consumed in the U.S. comes from hip-hop and R&B artists. Meanwhile, rock claims 23 percent. Much of this comes from streaming, as rock continues to boast 40 percent of all album sales in the country. Hip-hop and R&B claim 29 percent of all on-demand streams across the nation.
