Style for Saturday: Beer Bike Fashion Tips

(03/27/19 4:38am)

Similar problems exist in rhythm and blues — despite a history of female stars, the industry heavily favors men; on Billboard’s 2018 R&B songs chart, only seven out of more than 50 artists were women. The time for women to shine in their well-deserved spotlight has finally arrived thanks to increasingly democratic methods like platform streaming and social media.  Female artists in hip-hop and R&B have used these mediums as launchpads to meteoric success.
