Are there any prominant artists in these genres that one can listen to?
Jay Chou is an awesome rapper if you're looking for something in Chinese that sounds more like our music. I had a hard time looking for songs a couple years ago and came across him on youtube.
I strong recommend the artist Leehom Wang to you~~
I like his songs!
Actually I don't know much about the differences between R&B or hiphop or rap...
But I think Wang is one of the artists that you are looking for...
Just give it a try~
Here is some of my favorite!
