Urban myths held to be exploded in musical style (6,3,5)


I believe the answer is:

rhythm and blues

'musical style' is the definition.
(I know that rhythm and blues is a type of African-American music)

'urban myths held to be exploded' is the wordplay.
'to be exploded' indicates an anagram.
'urbanmythsheld' with letters rearranged gives 'RHYTHM AND BLUES'.

'in' is the link.

(Other definitions for rhythm and blues that I've seen before include "Music style" , "Type of music" , "track in this style for record perhaps" .)
