Best R&B SingersThese are the most amazing RnB singers ever... take a look.
The Top Ten
Putting a woman beater above the King of Pop is a crime.
The greatest of all time
The king of pop is at Number 1
Obviously The Best
Usher set the bar with Confessions and has easily been the one of the biggest inspiration for a lot of new R&B artists (not talking about those mainstream "R&B" singers)
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.
he is quite hot and perfect.. amazing dancing and voice
THE REAL KING OF RNB(unlike jacques)
No way is ugly overrated beyonce higher ranked than this legend. Luther has more talent and worth than beyonce's entire career!
Beyonce above Luther is an insult to music. Beyonce not even r&b, pop is not r&b!
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!
This is truly comical! Chris Brown above Luther?
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!
Come on him and Joe are supposed to be in the top five not chris brown or beyonce
Love McKnight! His voice takes me to another dimension.
Half of the people above him shouldn't even be here.
She has an amazing voice, enough said. Her songs don't always show it but just listen to her live and just know she has an amazing voice that rivals and even trumps that of Beyoncé's. I do wish that she'd stick more to the r&b genre though, since that that is where she excels the most. Leave the pop to katy perry, Britney spears, lady gaga and rihanna.
Shes good and deserves to be on the list but she definitely shouldn't be higher than Brian McKnight, Teddy Pendergrass, Johnny Gill, etc.
Nicole Scherzinger! No doubt about this chick!
I can't believe that we have this woman.. she is quite perfect
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."
Single Ladies is one of the biggest pieces of crap I've ever heard.
Ewww no not her, she isn't the best in anything especially r&b, she's so ugly and overrated!
Her? Best r&b artist? Hell no! Where is the best? She sucks.
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
This man set the bar for modern R&B. His trilogy is still one of the best albums ever.
Listen to his old stuff (trilogy, kissland) and you understand that he should be higher on this list.
He's not that good, Zayn Malik is so much better than him!
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.
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!
This guy really has a gift from God
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!
He's good but definitely shouldn't be higher than Brian McKnight, Teddy Pendergrass etc.
He has one of the most best lyrical and flowing songs. Konvict, and Koncrete are the two of his albums that reached platinum.
We love you so much akon
Given a lot of his new music isn't really R&B anymore. His older works are definitely worthy of some recognition. From 'With You' to 'No Air' with Jordan Sparks. Chris definitely has it in him if he ever chooses to go back to it.
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.
How can anybody still like him he's a woman beater and makes crappy auto-tuned songs
not to mention how on "Freaky Friday" he (as lil dicky) spits out this line:
"Ain't nobody judging cause I'm black or my controversial past"
The fact that he is this high on this list is just embarrassing!
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.
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.
Best singer of all time
He's much better than the weeknd and frank ocean, him and BJ the Chicago Kid are the best doing it right now!
For a 2010's artist, he's one of the few good ones.
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.
WHAT? He's no where near R&B who put this generic rapper on this list lol you know nothing about R&B.
Meh...in the 90's she was good but during the 2000's she was so awful, I wouldn't place her very high on the list, her music has always been more pop/hip hop than real r&b, she just doesn't have that rnb soul!
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
Hell no she should not be here, she's wack!
She is the breast singer!
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?
The only guy in the whole list with creative writing and a perfect album.
Frank has no bad songs and all great albums, easily the best on this list
Easily the most creative on this list
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.
It's an insult to have her listed so low. Easily one of the greatest inspiration for a lot of R&B artists (especially women)
No one can sing better than Whitney!
How is she not at least in the top 5?
With his incorporation of K-pop elements he's somewhat strayed from his R&B roots. However, every now and then he releases a song that'll remind you he is an R&B artist.
She's not as good as she once was but he set a high standard for female R&B artists.
Alicia Keys is a very talented woman. I'm glad to see her at #7
This girl's on fire!
hot girl, hot voice... very amazing to see her singing...
Amir Tataloo is the best R&B singer in the world.
Iranian best r&b singers
Father of the irans r&b
Maybe people have heard an Al Green song, they just didn't know the song was his. Another trailblazer for R&B artists.
