Try not to put much credence in the common gripe that today's brazen R&B lyrics are too reflective of the alleged superficial and dispassionate nature of millennials' sexual impulses. Because, let's face it, if you've never been able tolerate music of the freaky-deaky variety, you were never into any era of R&B. The genre has always thrived on lasciviousness—from Barry White to Betty Davis on up to badass British balladeer Marsha Ambrosius, who, on the chorus of her new post-maternal "Don't Wake the Baby" single, belts out "I'm gon' get some dick tonight" with celebratory glee. Her Raleigh coheadliner, Eric Benét, is no less innocent, singing about tasting a woman while she does "tongue tricks" on his recent bedroom hit "Insane." No, it's not Valentine's Day in April, but rather a reminder that, as far as R&B is concerned, there's nothing new under the sun, or between the sheets. —Eric Tullis
