This is based on late 90's American R & B, specifically Neo-Soul

Neo soul is a genre of popular music. The term was coined by music industry entrepreneur Kedar Massenburg during the late 1990s to market and describe a style of music that emerged from soul and contemporary R&B. Heavily based in soul music, neo soul is distinguished by a less conventional sound than its contemporary R&B counterpart, with incorporated elements ranging from jazz, funk, hip hop and electronic to pop, fusion, and African music. It has been noted by music writers for its traditional R&B influences, conscious-driven lyrics, and strong female presence.

Neo-soul has some of the feel and style of classic 70s soul music, but with more of 90s instruments and beats, and some subtle hip-hop influence. The intro is the dead giveaway --those sounds effects are pure 90s R & B. The electric piano is very 70s soul, but the drum-machine beat brings it into the 90s.
