I mainly listen to rock and metal or old traditional pop but over the last few years I've been branching out into other forms of music and one of those forms is the whole R&B/Soul area. I know the basics of how to identify these genres, such as R&B having smooth, higher pitched vocals and a rhythmic backing to the music. On the other hand I don't really understand soul all too well; I just seem to "know" what soul sounds like when I hear it but to try to explain it I would say it's similar to R&B but the vocals are more powerful (like Beyonce or Whitney Houston).

There is this Korean that I really like. I would predominantly say he's an R&B singer and that's what most people and sources say but I am trying to pinpoint each songs genres. I label my genres as "Main genre/subgenre" so a rock song with jazz elements would be Rock/Jazz and a rock song with acoustic elements and slight electronic elements would be "Rock/Acoustic/Electronic".
I am trying to do this with this singers album of 6 songs with the main genre being R&B and I was hoping someone could clarify if I have the genres right or if I should label it something more appropriate. Tracks 4 and 5 are the most confusing as I'm not sure if 4 would be considered rock and I don't know what blues is at all (It just sounds like rock) but I have a feeling that is a bluesy song.

I have the 6 tracks labelled as such:
1. R&B/Electronic
2. R&B/Electronic
3. R&B/Soul
4. R&B/Rock
5. R&B/Blues/Soul
6. R&B (I know this needs a subgenre)

Here is the album link: watch?v=BQ6pKffFQvU (Add to youtube url)
There is a tracklist with timestamps in the comments.

Thanks to anyone who helps me out.
