R&B’s Most Used Chord Progression 2-5-1

Stefan GuyMusic Theory4 Comments

The 2-5-1 movement is used right across music but heavily in Soul, Gospel and Jazz music.

R&B has adopted this progression and usage and has gone to town with it. We used to hear it a lot in the 90s but now its back in full effect. You’ll hear it in 1 out of 10 R&B with Trap style drum songs. From Chris Breezy to Kehlani and everyone in-between. So what is a 2-5-1 exactly? Well that’s what we’ll cover in the video below!
