English: Urban contemporary is a music radio format. The term was coined by the late New York DJ Frankie Crocker in the mid-1970s. Urban contemporary radio stations feature a playlist made up entirely of hip hop, R&B, electronic dance music such as dubstep and drum and bass (often with hip hop vocalists or rappers), and Caribbean music such as reggae, reggaeton, zouk, bouyon, and sometimes Soca (In Toronto, London, New York City, Boston and Miami). Urban contemporary was developed through the characteristics of genres such as R&B and soul. Virtually all Urban contemporary formatted radio stations are located in cities that have sizeable African-American populations, such as New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, Philadelphia, Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Memphis, Boston, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, and Charlotte.

Português: Urban contemporary é um gênero musical, popular nas décadas de 1980 e 1990, que pode ser definida como canções feitas por artistas de rhythm and blues ou soul que atraem diversas faixas e segmentos de público. O estilo teve seu início como um formato projetado pelas estações de rádio americanas para ter maior atrativo com os anunciantes, que achavam que a black radio da época, as rádios direcionadas especialmente à comunidade negra, não atingiam um público grande o bastante para eles.
