Derived from gospel and rhythm and blues, soul music is popular Afro-American music that emerged in the late 1950s in the United States.
Ray Charles is often cited for popularizing the genre with hit songs; Little Richard and James Brown are also important contributors.
At the beginning of the 1980s, new artists renewed the genre, like Michael Jackson with Off the Wall, Rick James, or even Prince, and definitively popularized it. Subsequently, by sampling the standards of the 1960s and 1970s, rap will contribute to a new popularity of soul music. Some groups will go further and merge soul, rap and pop music, to give birth to a nu soul in the second half of the 1990s like D'Angelo, De La Soul, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott...
