The 2-5-1 movement is used right across music but heavily in Soul, Gospel and Jazz music.
R&B has adopted this progression and usage and has gone to town with it. We used to hear it a lot in the 90s but now its back in full effect. You’ll hear it in 1 out of 10 R&B with Trap style drum songs. From Chris Breezy to Kehlani and everyone in-between.
As an engineer sometimes you’ll want or need a separate mix to what the vocalist is hearing. Most professional studios are set up to provide this via an outboard mixing desk. However this is still easily achieved inside the box within Logic through the use of a mix bus & audio interface with 4 or more outputs.
