He is a disgrace to the genre r&b. He is just disgusting and vulgar in all his songs now. It's not even r&b anymore, now it's trap/hip hop. He can't sing that well, he uses auto-tune, and sings about stupid crap. His songs aren't even catchy either, how can people even like him. - DaWyteNight

How can anybody still like him he's a woman beater and makes crappy auto-tuned songs - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

The fact that he is this high on this list is just embarrassing! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

6 Akon Akon Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, better known as Akon, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, businessman, record producer and actor.

I miss the days of Akon! He was everywhere and it was great. Now we have wack singers like ty dolla $ign, Bryson tiller, tory lanez, chris brown and august alsina who mostly sing about stupid crap and can't sing that well. THey will never replace Akon and T-Pain! The only one who comes close is the Weeknd but still his voice is very weak and girly! - DaWyteNight

He has one of the most best lyrical and flowing songs. Konvict, and Koncrete are the two of his albums that reached platinum.

7 Johnny Gill Johnny Gill

This guy really has a gift from God - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

Needs to be way higher! He should be above Beyoncé the mainstream pop artist, Mariah Carey who was good in the 90's but now sucks, and Eminem who is not an actual r&b singer! - DaWyteNight

8 Nicole Scherzinger Nicole Scherzinger Nicole Scherzinger, born Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente on June 29, 1978, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, and television personality . She first rose to fame as the lead singer of the pop/r&b group The Pussycat Dolls. In fact, Nicole was pretty much the only girl in the group ...read more.

Nicole Scherzinger! No doubt about this chick! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

10 Teddy Pendergrass Teddy Pendergrass Theodore DeReese Pendergrass was an American singer–songwriter and composer. He first rose to fame as lead singer of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes in the 1970s before a successful solo career at the end of the decade.

Love me some Teddy P! Even if the production of the song is not that good, anything Teddy sings is magical! Luther too! He can make any song good, even if the production is meh. Wish we still had him today. If it wasn't for him we might not have Johnny Gill. Wish it was chris brown or b. smith who died and not Teddy or Luther. - DaWyteNight

Drake I understand but eminem is not an actual singer! Just because he sings a little bit sometimes doesn't mean he's a singer. That's like calling Ciara, Mariah Carey, Nicole Scherzinger and Monica rappers just because they did a little rapping on a track once. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

This site confuses me I voted for Whitney Houston and put eminem in the dishonorable mentions but he's still higher ranked than Whitney and other actual singers! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

This proves members on this website is biased on Eminem, like first off, he's not a singer, he's a rapper, and second, why is he on this list. - chocodilesforlife

This is rap not r&b…as a matter of fact almost none of this is r&b. Don't all of you know what R and B stand for?

19 The Weeknd The Weeknd Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.

He has amazing vocals. Listen to "Wicked Games." "Starboy" is awesome and sincere. Just like Beyonce's "Hold Up", his "The Hills" and "Party Monster" reveals his darker persona. He should be at least 10 on the list

20 JoJo JoJo

this great young girl is very amazing... world is lucky to have her
