During the 1950s and 1960s, black artists more commonly covered (that is, recorded) songs first recorded by white performers that did white performers cover songs first recorded by black artists.-during the 1950s and 1960s, it was more common for white artists to cover songs recorded by black artists than vice-versa. by the mid-1950s, r&b had become so popular among white youth that it was banned on some radio stations in the south and other parts of the country. during the mid-1950s, it was picked up and fused with country music by elvis presley, jerry lee lewis, buddy holly, and other white artists. during the 1950s, it would have been accurate to state that to label a song r&b was to state that it was recorded by a black artist and was, therefore, popular among african americans. but this is no longer true because, since the 1950s, there have been many popular white r&b artists - new kids on the block and norah johns - just to name a few.
