First conceptualized with Jodeci's ''Forever My Lady'' in 1991, and popularized a year later by Mary J. Blige's ''What's The 411?'', Hip Hop Soul soon displaced it's parent genre, which was beginning to suffer from serious backlash from music fans and critics. It also increasingly blurred the line between R&B and Hip Hop moreso than new jack swing, as Hip Hop Soul artists began to portray themselves in styles and personas similar to rappers: adopting a tougher "street" image than most R&B acts and dressing up in the same fashion styles as rappers. As a result, this caused R&B to become more accepted and commercially successful among even hardcore rap fans, while also appealing to older fans of R&B (Ironically, this also caused some rappers to adopt some elements of the hip hop soul personas to appeal to mainstream audiences). Many new jack swing artists quickly switched over to hip hop soul to compete with the success of Jodeci and Blige, including new jack creator Teddy Riley, who formed his second group Blackstreet during this period.

Hip Hop Soul was also a major influence in the creation of NeoSoul in the late Nineties, and it's influence can still be felt in ContemporaryRAndB to this very day.

First created by RAndB group Jodeci and later codified by Music/MaryJBlige, Hip Hop Soul [[note]]Coined by Bad Boy Records founder Sean "Puffy" Combs[[/note]] is the direct successor to NewJackSwing created in the early Nineties. Like its predecessor, it combines Hip hop elements with R&B, GospelMusic, {{funk}} production, but took it a step further by the artists singing over the same type of sample heavy beats that rappers use, driven more by the beats than the melodies.
