ABM: Perhaps, you could include other singers to your list..such as virtuosos like jill scott and alicia keys, stylists like erykah badu and angie stone, who aren't necessarily part of the mainstream pop culture(maybe ak is). These women could be considered part of the tradition that you have delineated...u can even see this tradition in groups like floetry...or even musicians and political singer and songwriter, Meshell Ndegeocello...Among the black twenty and thirtysomething generation the diversity of r&b, socalled neosoul, and even hip hop is known...Generally speaking, perhaps it is a question, as you suggest by your "yungin's" label, as well as cynique's exchange with A_womon and justwrite on another thread, that it is about generational differnences...like I said, generally speaking.
