Pop music is definitely more dominated by Eurodance influences than R&B ones today. Nico & Vinz's "Am I Wrong" was the outlier of the summer as far as megahits that borrowed influences from other places but even hip-hop kingmaker DJ Mustard samples, like, Snap! and Robin S. R&B's influence has waned to near-zero and what's left is basically "thumping syncopation-free dancing with the occasional rapper grafted on for 'cred.'"
"Good Kisser" by Usher peaked at No. 65. 65! That was probably from the video and streams too.
Also how does the Avicii Mumford-biting play into this? Or all those godawful post-Mumford singer-songwriter hits that aren't quite country but exist in a weird indie-folk space?

But, you know, why let a little bit of actual history get in the way of a marketing plan!
