Although Jerry Wexler of Billboard magazine is credited with coining the term "rhythm and blues" as a musical term in the United States in 1948, [11] the term was used in Billboard as early as 1943. [12] [13] It replaced the term " race music ", which originally came from within the black community, but was deemed offensive in the postwar world. [14] [15] The term "rhythm and blues" was used by Billboard in its chart listings from June 1949 until August 1969, when its "Hot Rhythm & Blues Singles" chart was renamed as "Best Selling Soul Singles". [16] Before the "Rhythm and Blues" name was instated, various record companies had already begun replacing the term "race music" with "sepia series". [17]
