Quiet Storm is a sub-genre of R & B music, set apart by piercing super sensuous, extra smooth romantic tones, doused in the flame of love. The genre is unique in that it goes where common love songs can’t. To be Quiet Storm worthy the song must massage the mind and soul in ways that average romantic lyrics fails to. Quiet Storm married to Soulful ballad produces the most powerful love songs ever written, or sung. To comprehend Quiet Storm, you must know the meaning of Love, understand that you can’t choose who you’re going to Love, and be willing to speak to your heart through song.
