The Top Ten

1 Usher Usher Usher Terry Raymond IV is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor. Born in Dallas, but raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee was where he lived until moving to Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 12 where his mother put him in local singing competitions all over the city.

usher is the best. not only his singing but also his dancing. his steps are awesome n specially his grammy-11 performance, it was a ripper, too good.

King because nobody gets closer to his vocal prowess and giving different emotions to songs how it's supposed to be

@the one who said Raheem and Maxwell suck, go clean out your ears! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

The only thing that bothers me about him is what he did to Green Day in 2012

2 Trey Songz Trey Songz

Trey songz is so hot, he's hot and his music. If anything he could be #1. All the girls love him because lte's face it the man has swag and a bunch of it too. My favorite song is "Can't be friends". He's just that good. - 1234piggyface

Trey is good and deserves a spot on the list but he definitely isn't better than Joe, Luther, Brian McKnight, Marvin Gaye, and many others. - DaWyteNight

he is one of the greatest singers and plus he doesn't always talk about sex he talks about findin love plus are kelly rapped a lil girl so he sucks

His newer music turned me off for a while, but I kind of underestimated him. Trey Day is a classic! - DaWyteNight

Nothing special - DaWyteNight

5 Johnny Gill Johnny Gill Johnny Gill started out as a solo artist in the 1980s, releasing two albums that didn't garner much attention. It was not until later, when Gill became a member of the r&b/pop group New Edition, that people started to take notice of his music and his talent. He went on to release his most successful ...read more.

Better than Usher and all of the people ahead of him - DaWyteNight

Best voice ever! - RnBLover

6 Joe

Joe is the best r&b singer of the 90's! He's better than Usher, R Kelly and all of them. Usher and Kellz are good, but Joe is just on another level, one of the few singers who actually knows what r&b is all about and can actually sing his face off! - DaWyteNight

Joe is one of d best...
Hs purely into rnb only..
N he delivers it with no blemish

7 Luther Vandross Luther Vandross

This is truly comical... Vocal talent exceeds all of the artist listed 1 to 19! These polls are usually based upon popularity and have little to do with sheer vocals, lyrics, and meaning behind the words that create the songs. I can extend credit to the other artist for arriving at success in the chosen field, but none of them can hold a candle to "The Voice"!

Usher is good, but Luther is the master of this genre! - DaWyteNight

The greatest singer of all time!

8 Jay Sean Jay Sean Jay Sean is a British singer and songwriter. He debuted in the UK's Asian Underground scene as a member of the Rishi Rich Project with "Dance with You", which reached No.

Jay Sean is cool, but definitely not top 10 good or even top 20. There's just so many great r&b singers who deserve it more. - DaWyteNight

9 Taio Cruz

He's really not r&b so he shouldn't be on this list - DaWyteNight

10 R. Kelly R. Kelly Robert Sylvester Kelly, known professionally as R. Kelly, is an American recording artist, songwriter, record producer, and former professional basketball player.

I like his album "Double Up" - he has good designs.

Can't argue with two decades of success
No one else on this list has the extensive catalog that Mr. kelly has
HIT AFTER HIT

He's one of my favorites. Every song he does is brought to life.

The king of rnb should be #1

How are taio cruise the dance artist, Jason derulo the pop artist, trey songz the r&b artist who only sings about sex, and R Kelly who is good but not on the same level as Marvin higher than Marvin Gaye! - DaWyteNight

What has the world come to when The Man that all of these people look up to is not even in the Top 5. Ridiculous.

Yeah, he makes real R&B. Chris Brown & Usher are just pop singers (no offense to pop music)

Marvin should be top 3 - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

By far the greatest, most genuine voice at the moment - sigreeff
