Default Definition of R&B

It occurred to me recently that a good deal of the stuff on the radio that is widely labelled "r&b" is not actually r&b at all! It's just singing on top of hip-hop styled drum beats, in fact often even the beats are just standard 4/4 with no hip-hop stylings at all. Basically it's just your regular modern-day urban pop music. I really see no justification for such usage of the r&b label whatsoever.

What do others think.
