In the midway of 2017, Nielsen Music declared that R&B and hip-hop account for 25% of all music used, outrunning rock for the first time in 25 years of Billboard reporting charts.
Examining the R&B/Hip-Hop charts and the Pop charts between 1993 and 2016 reveals that R&B/Hip-Hop songs are least likely to cross from R&B/Hip-Hop radio to pop radio. In 1993, 16 songs featuring outstanding female tracks made a jump from R&B/Hip-Hop airplay to pop airplay. In 2016, there were only two tracks that made a list.
