Default When would you all say rhythm & blues/Soul music went on a decline?

The late 80s - early 90s for me.

What about you guys and gals?

Pop music in general (not only black music) came to a decline as the medias were taking over the labels compagnies. It slowly started in the mid 80s after the success of Thriller and it became obvious in the late 90s. Yet many artists are still doing good stuffs but they are not mainstreamed.

late 70s/early 80s I think

the 60s and 70s were a great time for soul & Rnb, but since disco & synthesisers started I feel like it all went downhill

though some good stuff happened later on too
