AceShowbiz - The blur line of music genre has led Justin Bieber to make a debatable claim about the color of his latest record "Changes". Having been widely recognized as a pop superstar, the Canadian singer has apparently tried to swift gear by saying that his 2020 studio album is an R&B album.
It all began as Kehlani, who recently released her new album "It Was Good Until It Wasn't", promoted the record on her Instagram post. The 25-year-old songstress urged her fans to stream the record as it could end up becoming the first R&B album to top the charts in 2020.
"IT WAS GOOD UNTIL IT WASNT. Link in bio. Last day to stream to get the first strictly RNB first week #! album in a long time," she wrote in a now-deleted post. Further promoting R&B music, she continued, "our genre isn't dead, our genre deserves! Link in bio! What's your favorite lyric drop them comments boiiiiii and stream awayyy!"
Seeing Kehlani's post, Justin decided to weigh in on it. He disputed her claim that "It Was Good Until It Wasn't" could be the first R&B album to hit No. 1 in 2020, claiming that his album "Changes" is also of R&B genre and has placed first earlier this year. "Changes was rnb ;)" he wrote in the comment section.
Many of Kehlani's fans clearly disagreed with Justin, with one trying to correct him, "I like Justin but that album is not what R&B fans consider to be R&B. Sorry to this man." A second person kindly tried to explain to him, "I wouldn't call his album R&B, more like a pop album with some songs having a trap beat."
"It's Justin Bieber, what else would it be besides Pop?" another person who doubted Justin's claim chimed in. Reacting with a joke, someone suggested, "JB's was rnb the way Post Malone's was hip hop lol."
Another fan of Kehlani said he/she was angry because of Justin's claim, admitting, "This pissed me off." Clearly not a fan of the "Sorry" hitmaker, another added, "He acted like a Damn cry baby when 'Yummy' wasn't charting ...have several seats...gotta give up that child star mentality." Someone else also slammed him as writing, "He is so tone deaf it's sad."
Kehlani herself has not responded to Justin's claim, while the husband of Hailey Baldwin has not attempted to clarify his remarks.
Nevertheless, Kehlani's "It Was Good Until It Wasn't" is poised to become one of the most successful R&B albums in history, with a fan page pointing out that if she hit number one, she would be the first female r&b artist to do so since Beyonce Knowles' "Lemonade".
