List of New Jack Swing Artists

This list contains singers and groups who performed in the new jack swing (or swingbeat)[1][2] style, a hybrid style popular from the mid-1980s into the early 1990s.[3] It fuses the rhythms, samples and production techniques of hip hop and dance-pop music with the urban contemporary sound of R&B. The new jack swing style developed as many previous R&B styles did, by combining elements of older styles with newer trends. It uses mellifluously soulful solo or harmonizing vocals sung over rhythms and "street" beats derived from urban musical influences. The sound of new jack swing comes from the hip hop "swing" beats created by drum machine, and hardware samplers, which was popular during the golden age of hip hop, with contemporary R&B style singing.
