Thanks to the recent success of R&B artists like August Alsina, Trey Songz and Ty Dolla $ign, it’s gotten more difficult to differentiate singers from rappers in 2014. While R&B artists of the 1980s, ’90s, and even the 2000s stuck to singing about things like love, commitment and heartbreak, a lot of today’s R&B artists talk about the same things as rappers.

From popping bottles at the strip club to trying to work their way into and out of love triangles, it’s no longer a surprise when an R&B singer incorporates hardcore or raunchy lyrics into their work. As a result, it’s become challenging to separate R&B artists from hip-hop artists. To prove it, here’s a quiz with 10 different lyrics. Try and figure out which ones originate from rappers and which were sung by R&B artists. It won’t be as easy as you think.
