    The dude Jeremiah first album was his first collection of music he recorded ever and he got 5 videos off that?

    R&B aint like rap where you can just be shelling out mixtapes where you rap on other ppl beats(truth be told in the game today most upcoming rappers areforced to drop mixtapes with original songs/beats).

    Not every R&B singer rights their own !@+$ so they have to pay for it. A struggling R&B artist is not going to release mixtapes for free.

    I think there is probably a market if they took an Indie approach, but a lot of R & B artist probably wouldn't know where to begin from thatstandpoint.

    Not really, especially if they struggling. If they do it'll be 10-13 songs if they're smart. When Trey does it he couples in his rapping.It's possible but it wouldn't catch on.

    It'd be an area where only R&B artists who write their own shh and maybe even make their on beats succeed in. I mean I don't see much praise fordudes singing over other ppl's beats anyway.

    maybe because many rnb artists don't write all of their music themselves, so if they're paying for a song to be written
    it probably ain't going on a mixtape


    edit- didn't read, ^already been stated
