What are the main differences between contemporary Hip-Hop(music) and contemporary R&B?

I am looking to find out what the main differences between the two styles are so I can figure out the most appropriate way to market my music, where now the two styles are so close together.

Update:

No half ****** opinions please. This is for professional reasons, so please keep that in mind.

    In my own personal opinion, with hip hop you only have to talk fast and be able to dance.. And with R&B, you actually have to sing, and to have a super amazing wonderful awesome voice in order to succeed.. lol.. But that's just my opinion.. I hope these sites are helpful.. Have a great day :)

    Hip-hop sucks and R&B doesn't. That's the only important difference.
