This is a list of alternative R&B artists. Alternative R&B (also known as PBR&B) fuses traditional R&B with other musical elements such as rock, hip hop, EDM, dream pop, cloud rap, neo soul, soul, jazz, chillwave, electro hop, trap, electropop, funk, trip hop and future garage. The subgenre rose to prominence in the late 2000s and eventually became a popular genre into the 2010s.
