Q. I would like you to choose two genres of music you like and compare them. What are the differences between them? How do you feel when you listen to each type of music? Provide as many details as possible.
The two types of music I want to compare are hip-hop and R&B. Although I'm a big fan of both types of music, there are similarities and differences between the two types.
Let me start off with the similarities first. As far as I know, both types put people in a good mood. In addition, I believe that both hip-hop and R&B never go out of style. Both types have been all the rage over the past few decades.
However, the differences between the two outweigh such similarities. R&B is characterized by mellow melodies and soaring vocals. Most R&B singers have a pretty amazing voice. What's more, the songs are usually about falling in love or breaking up, so they make me think about my own relationships a lot.
On the other hand, hip-hop has much more energy. There’s usually a strong underlying beat. It always makes me want to get up and dance. I personally believe hip-hop is better. This is mainly because of the way that it is sung. The lyrics are rapped, which makes it sound more like a chant rather than singing. It’s cool because rappers use their voice as a sort of musical instrument.
No matter what, I love listening both types of music!
