    Singer As new song was described as a hybrid of R&B and country music

    Which is the most accurate form for the following sentence?

    Singer As new song was described as a hybrid of R&B and country music, as opposed to his previous ballad releases.
    Singer As new song was described as a hybrid of R&B and country music, as opposed to his previous ballads.
    Singer As new song was described as a hybrid of R&B and country music, as opposed to his previous balladic styles.

    Also, can I drop the word "music" after "country"?

    Thanks for your help! :)

    I would keep the word "music" after "country" in this case.

    "as opposed to" isn't necessary.

    I'd probably say "Unlike his previous releases, which were ballads, A's new song has been described as a hybrid of R&B and country music.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
