Best R&B SingersThese are the most amazing RnB singers ever... take a look.
The Top Ten
No way is ugly overrated beyonce higher ranked than this legend. Luther has more talent and worth than beyonce's entire career! - IHaveGreatTaste
Beyonce above Luther is an insult to music. Beyonce not even r&b, pop is not r&b!
This is truly comical! Chris Brown above Luther? - RnBLover
Beyoncé and chris brown above Luther? Wow. They shouldn't even be in the top 50, there are so many better singers than overrated beyonce and chris brown! - DaWyteNight
Putting a woman beater above the King of Pop is a crime. - 445956
The greatest of all time
I think he's good, Confessions is one of my favorite r&b albums of all time and Here I Stand is great too, but he's definitely not better than Joe, Brian McKnight, Johnny Gill, Luther, Teddy, Marvin etc. - DaWyteNight
he is quite hot and perfect.. amazing dancing and voice
I'm kinda okay with Luther Vandross or Michael Jackson (who let's be honest, inspired Brian himself in some way) being above him but I wouldn't put Usher, Akon or Nicole Scherzinger (who are good but not as legendary as Brian) above him, and I definitely would not put Chris Brown or Beyonce (who are very overrated) even near him! - IHaveGreatTaste
Half of the people above him shouldn't even be here. - RnBLover
Come on him and Joe are supposed to be in the top five not chris brown or beyonce - DaWyteNight
Love McKnight! His voice takes me to another dimension.V 1 Comment
Hot girl, hot voice!
Shes good and deserves to be on the list but she definitely shouldn't be higher than Brian McKnight, Teddy Pendergrass, Johnny Gill, etc. - IHaveGreatTaste
Nicole Scherzinger! No doubt about this chick! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
She has a great voice and I wish she had more true r&b songs to show it off. Plus, don't forget she fine!V 2 Comments
Um, this ugly piece of crap should be nowhere on this list. She is so overrated and makes horrible songs like 711 and single ladies, doesn't even write any of her songs and is just all around a joke. The most ugly overrated waste of space to ever be called a "legend." - RnBLover
Her? Best r&b artist? Hell no! Where is the best? She sucks. - RnBLover
Hell no she should not be here - DaWyteNight
Single Ladies is one of the biggest pieces of crap I've ever heard. - IHaveGreatTasteV 2 Comments
He has one of the best voices I've ever heard! It's upsetting that people with so little talent are more famous than him. - IHaveGreatTaste
This guy really has a gift from God - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
He needs to be higher! He should be above Beyoncé the pretentious mainstream artist and Chris Brown who is no where as good as Johnny is and uses auto-tune on every song! - DaWyteNight
He's good but definitely shouldn't be higher than Brian McKnight, Teddy Pendergrass etc. - IHaveGreatTaste
We love you so much akon
The greatest ever!
Move akon sir up...whole world loves him..V 2 Comments
This list is just sad. How is the man who inspired all of these people not even in the top five, let alone the top 10! And to make it worse, he is under beyonce, chris brown, rihanna, drake, Eminem and the weekend as well as some singers who are good but are not as legendary as than Teddy. - RnBLover
Best singer of all time
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
He has some r&b songs here and there, but he's more of a rapper to be honest. But I do think he's a better r&b singer than he is as a rapper. As an r&b singer he's kind of like a better version of The-Dream. - IHaveGreatTaste
WHAT? He's no where near R&B who put this generic rapper on this list lol you know nothing about R&B. - TheMainReason
He's not that good, Zayn Malik is so much better than him! - IHaveGreatTaste
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
He is the best!
Most of his music is so garbage. He is not a real alternative RnB singer. Also, Bryson Tiller, August Alsina, Tory Lanez, PARTYNEXTDOOR, they sing songs are mostly dirty.
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
To me r&b is about uplifting music that speaks to lovers, not objectifying women. Therefore, this guy doesn't deserve to be on the list.V 11 Comments
For a 2010's artist, he's one of the few good ones. - DaWyteNight
He's much better than the weeknd and frank ocean, him and BJ the Chicago Kid are the best doing it right now! - IHaveGreatTaste
Pillow talk - adarshjeet
Her voice now is so annoying. In the 90's she was a good singer but now I'd even go as far as calling her one of the worst singers - RnBLover
She is the breast singer! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
Hell no she should not be here, she's wack! - RnBLover
I only like her first three albums. After that, shes just pretentious and annoying and I can't stand her voice. She thinks that she is all that when she really isn't.V 3 Comments
One of the greatest r&b singers of all time is not number 1 and is below chris brown the mainstream pop artist, Akon who is good but not as legendary as R. Kelly is, and beyonce the pretentious mainstream artist? - RnBLover
Fire & Desire
hot girl, hot voice... very amazing to see her singing...
Alicia Keys is a very talented woman. I'm glad to see her at #7
This girl's on fire! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
This is just insulting. How is she not at least in the top 3? And she is under beyonce and rihanna? Those girls are nowhere near Whitney and never could dream of being half as great as she was. "Saving All My Love" is better than beyonce's entire career. - RnBLover
No one can sing better than Whitney!
How is she not at least in the top 5? - DaWyteNight
What? The best female singer of all time is not number 1 and she is under Beyoncé the ugly sellout music industry whore, Chris Brown the auto-tune abusing woman beater, Rihanna the horrible no talent having auto-tuning pop artist who isn't anything close to r&b at all, Jason Derulo the talented but below average mainstream pop artist, Usher and Akon who are good but not as good as Whitney, Nicole Scherzinger who is good but who herself was inspired by Whitney and wouldn't be singing if it wasn't for her, Drake the rapper, The Weeknd the mediocre PBR&B singer and Zayn Malik who is good but still a newcomer and isn't close to Whitney's level? The only one's I could see being higher than her are Michael Jackson or Luther Vandross. She inspired all of these singers today, even that slutty sellout whore beyonce and that piece of crap rihanna who got famous for no reason. - IHaveGreatTaste
Frank has no bad songs and all great albums, easily the best on this list
Shes not an r&b singer at all! - IHaveGreatTaste
Wrong list, this is the r&b list not the pop list, Rihanna's a pop singer. - RnBLover
She's not r&b she's pop! Who put rihanna and bieber on here! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan
What? She's nowhere near r&b who added this talentless pop tart to the list?V 1 Comment

Joe should be top 5, beyonce, rihanna and chris brown are not r&b
Joe is one of the greatest singers period! - DaWyteNight
Robbed! Might I just point out that one of the greatest voices to ever exist is under rihanna! - DaWyteNight
Should be number one better voice than a lot of artists before him!
Trash - DaWyteNight
She's the best Singer/Vocalist ever.. I mean Beyonce is good but Brandy is Marvelous! BRILLIANT! From "I Wanna be Down" '94 to "Wildest Dream" 2K12... But She's beautiful.. not perfect.. but she's god's most precious angel.
Her melodies are amazing and music straight fro the heart, listen "fall" and you'll agree...
Best singer of our generation
She has amazing voice
I love her so much
She has amazing voice
Proud with her
Same level with Chris Brown nowadays. They're both wack R&B singers. - waraypiso
He is a great singer
He has like one really good song "Raindrops" and that's it. - DaWyteNight
