African-American and Latin

Soul music and rhythm and blues are the fundaments of urban music. The music form was popular in cities with many African-American inhabitants such as Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles and Atlanta. For African Americans contemporary R&B became the most important genre. Latinos developed their own Latin urban as reggaeton, Latin hip-hop and bachata.
